It seems that Angie Postecoglu, coach of Celtic, a prestigious Scottish professional football team in which Oh Hyun-kyu plays, will take the helm of Son Heung-min’s team, Tottenham Hotspur.
Multiple local media outlets, including the British BBC, reported on the 6th (Korean time) that “Director Postecoglu has agreed to a two-year contract as Tottenham’s new command tower.”
He added, “The agreement on the details of the contract has been concluded, and will be announced soon.”
Tottenham, who parted ways with manager Antonio Conte in March, entrusted coach Christian Stellini as acting manager, but when the performance did not improve, coach Ryan Mason was appointed as acting manager and finished the season.
However, it stayed in 8th place in the EPL and was denied the right to participate in the UEFA Champions League next season as well as the Europa League and Europa Conference League.
Tottenham, which was looking for a new command tower for the next season, has been negotiating after selecting coach Postecoglu, who achieved a’Treble (three crowns)’ on the Scottish professional football stage in the 2022-2023 season.
Celtic has won the regular league, Scottish Cup (FA) Cup and League Cup. It is the 8th treble in the club’s career.
Postecoglu was born in Greece and immigrated to Australia to gain experience as a player and coach.
From 2013 to 2017, he coached the Australian national team and won the 2015 Asian Cup final by beating Korea 2-1 in extra time.
At that time, Son Heung-min scored an equalizer to make it 1-1 in extra time in the second half.
Postcoglu, who took over as Celtic manager in June 2021, achieved two consecutive victories in the Scottish regular league and League Cup, and won one Scottish Cup.
Last January, he also has a connection with Korean football, such as signing striker Oh Hyeon-gyu from Suwon Samsung in the K League 1.안전놀이터
If he leaves Celtic and takes charge of Tottenham, he will coach Son Heung-min after Oh Hyun-kyu.
