Now that the season and all domestic cup competitions have concluded, Tottenham Hotspur have announced the appointment of Ange Postecoglou as their new First Team Head Coach. Becoming the first Australian to manage in the Premier League, Ange will join the Spurs on 1 July on a four-year contract.

Daniel Levy, Chairman of Tottenham Hotspur: “Ange brings a positive mentality and a fast, attacking style of play. He has a strong track record of developing players and an understanding of the importance of the link from the academy – everything that is important to our Club. We are excited to have Ange join us as we prepare for the season ahead.”

A former Australia national team player, Ange managed at South Melbourne, winning the National Soccer League twice and the Oceania Club Championship. He then led the Australian national Under-17s and Under 20s before moving on to managing in the A-League, winning the Premiership in 2011 and the Championship Grand Finals in 2011 and 2012 with Brisbane Roar, becoming the first coach to win consecutive A-League Championship titles. He then became Australian senior national team manager from 2013 to 2017, taking the team to the 2014 FIFA World Cup, winning the AFC Asian Cup in 2015 and securing qualification for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. He won the J1 League with Yokohama F. Marinos in 2019 and joins Tottenham from Celtic where he won the Scottish Premiership and Scottish League Cup in 2021/22 and delivered the treble, winning the Scottish Premiership, Scottish League Cup and Scottish Cup in 2022/23.

Following his successful stint at Celtic, the club released a statement, with Postecoglou saying “[The board] wanted me to extend my time at Celtic and while I am so respectful and understanding of their position, a new opportunity has been presented to me and it is one which I wanted to explore.

“Celtic is a phenomenal football club, and so much more – and I will forever be a supporter of this great institution. I wish everyone connected with Celtic nothing but continued success.”

The move is a landmark moment for Australian football and heralds by far the biggest challenge of the 57-year-old’s career. But it is an opportunity he has earned, and one he is ready for.
