About Ange Postecoglou
Before joining Celtic in 2021, Ange Postecoglou was born in Athens. He managed the Greek lower-league team Panachaiki in 2008, marking his limited European experience. Postecoglou achieved winning the Australian title with both South Melbourne and Brisbane Roar. Additionally, he led Yokohama F Marinos to success in Japan’s top flight and guided the Australian national team to victory in the 2015 Asian Cup.
As he leads Tottenham, Postecoglou is responsible for a team that finished eighth in the Premier League. They are now facing their first season without European football since 2009-10.
He is the fourth permanent boss of the London team, following Jose Mourinho, Nuno Espirito Santo, and Conte. They held the position since Mauricio Pochettino was dismissed in 2019.
Since arriving in Scotland in the summer of 2021, Postecoglou has won five out of six possible trophies. He reestablished Celtic’s dominance in the country. Before his appointment, Celtic finished 25 points behind Rangers. Postecoglou candidly acknowledged that he was initially perceived as a “joke.” Nevertheless, he joins Jock Stein, Martin O’Neill, Brendan Rodgers, and Neil Lennon as one of only five managers to accomplish a domestic clean sweep for Celtic. Postecoglou quickly endeared himself to the Celtic fans with his recruitment strategies and attacking brand of football which garnered considerable attention and admiration.
