Tottenham have reached an agreement with Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou to become their new manager.
Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou has agreed to join Tottenham on a two-year contract.
The 57-year-old Australian has just ended his second season with Celtic, where he led them to the Scottish title both years and the domestic triple this season.
Spurs have been looking for a new manager since Antonio Conte’s departure in March, with interim managers Cristian Stellini and subsequently Ryan Mason.
Before an announcement, the last details of the agreement are being worked out.
Athens-born Prior to joining Celtic in 2021, Postecoglou’s only experience in Europe was as manager of Greek lower league club Panachaiki in 2008.
He has won the Australian title with South Melbourne and Brisbane Roar, Japan’s top division with Yokohama F Marinos, and the 2015 Asian Cup with the Australian national team.
Postecoglou takes over a Tottenham team that finished ninth in the Premier League and will be without European competition for the first time since 2009-10.
The Greek teenager who has the potential to become Tottenham’s main guy
After Mauricio Pochettino was fired in 2019, he becomes the club’s fourth permanent manager, following Jose Mourinho, Nuno Espirito Santo, and Conte.
Since arriving in Scotland in the summer of 2021, Postecoglou has won five titles out of a potential six, re-establishing Celtic as the dominant force in the country.
He claimed that he was viewed as a “joke” when he took over, with Celtic finishing 25 points behind Rangers.
However, he joins Jock Stein, Martin O’Neill, Brendan Rodgers, and Neil Lennon as the only five Celtic managers to achieve a domestic clean sweep.
