What is the latest news on the future of Ange Postecoglou?
Postecoglou is on track to lead the Hoops to a national treble and his continued success with Glasgow has resulted in rumors of a departure.
The Australian has been linked with numerous Premier League sides this season, most recently with Tottenham and Wolves. Reports have suggested Spurs are preparing to make a move for the 57-year-old, who has a 12-month contract in Scotland set for expire within a few days.
The manager has pushed aside however, he talks about a potential move to North London, saying:
“I think anyone who knows me knows that the here and now is important to me. I never planned anything in my football career.
“My ambition at the moment is to enjoy tomorrow and play a good game and try to win the cup final to have a special year. It’s not every year you get a chance to win the Triple Crown. If anyone thinks I’m thinking of something other than that, they don’t know me.”
It looks like Celtic will do everything in their power to keep him at the club for the 2023/24 season after the latest update.
According to Football insider reporter Wayne Veysey, Celtic are poised to offer Postecoglou a record deal, making him the highest-paid manager in the club’s history, ahead of Brendan Rodgers.
Postecoglou helped turn the club’s fortunes around after a disappointing 2020/21 season under Neil Lennon which saw rivals Rangers win the Scottish Premiership.
The current head coach won back-to-back league titles and helped the club bring in some clever signings thanks to his excellent knowledge of the Japanese and Asian markets. Kyogo Furuhashi and Reo Hatate are just two of the players who have risen under Postecoglou, with the pair making it into the top 10 of the club’s players this season, according to Who scored points.
Celtic may need to secure Postecoglou along with a possible record deal to keep them happy with the previous ones reports suggests he wants a new centre-back, central midfielder and striker this summer.
Hopefully the club can cater to his needs in the market, which could play a role in keeping him at the club, and with the recent update on a new deal, Postecoglou’s future will certainly be one to watch out for.
