Tottenham Hopes to Secure the Services of Australian Gaffer Postecoglou

Given the fine job Postecoglou has done in Scotland, Tottenham believes the Australian will be the perfect candidate to don the coat with the crest of a cockerel standing upon a football.

After tonnes of rejections, English Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur are hoping to sign Australian manager Ange Postecoglou as the club’s new gaffer. Earlier, Tottenham wanted to secure the services of Feyenoord’s manager, Arne Slot, but the club’s offer was rejected.

Therefore, Tottenham believes Postecoglou is the next best candidate for the club given the brilliant job he has done with Celtic in Scotland. For the unversed souls, Postecoglou was recently named Scotland’s Manager of the Year for the second year in a row after he led Celtic to another league title.

Independent’s report

Speaking about the candidates for the role, Independent's Miguel Delaney reported: "While the feeling in the game had been that the Slot negotiations were close to the finish line, some figures with knowledge of the situation insist Spurs were still conducting discussions about a top list of targets," as quoted by Sport Bible in its article.

The report further read, "One of those is Postecoglou, who is being strongly considered, along with Sporting’s Ruben Amorim. Daniel Levy would greatly value Luis Enrique, but that is seen as more difficult to pull off given the Spanish coach’s list of demands when Chelsea interviewed him."

Postecoglou’s statement

Reacting to the recent attention that Postecoglou has received from several clubs, the Australian, while speaking to Fox Sports, expressed, "You think about it all. When people say ‘he’s going to go down the road or somewhere else with the first offer he gets’ it’s not how I’m wired, it’s not how I think. I don’t think about the next step … or I need to go somewhere else … or I need to do this … or I need to consider other things. It is all there."

"You don’t go through life oblivious to it. It is not healthy to put the blinkers up and not know what is going on because that tests your desire to keep doing what you’re doing. If people are talking about my future or are interested in my future, I will sit there and listen," he added.
