The ‘teacher of Oh Hyun-gyu’ is expected to become the ‘manager of Son Heung-min’.

The BBC reported on June 6 (Korean time) that “Scottish Celtic manager Angie Postecoglou, 57, has agreed to become Tottenham’s new manager on a two-year contract. Final terms are being worked out ahead of an official announcement.” European transfer market pundit Fabrizio Romano also tweeted with his trademark ‘HERE WE GO’ tagline: “Postecoglou will be Tottenham’s new manager. A two-year contract with an option for a one-year extension.”

The English Premier League club has been in search of a new manager since sacking Antonio Conte in March. Christian Stellini and “acting manager” Lyson Mason took over on an interim basis, but the club finished eighth in the league and missed out on European competition next season.

Tottenham have been rejected one after another in their search for a new manager. Julian Nagelsmann broke off talks with Bayern Munich, while Feyenoord boss Arne Schott remained on the sidelines due to penalty issues. Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino took over at Chelsea, while attempts to bring in the likes of former Spain boss Luis Enrique failed. Pochettino eventually came around and was close to being appointed as Celtic’s Postecoglou for next season. Local reports suggest that an official announcement could come as early as 48 hours or as late as this week.

Postecoglou, a Greek-born Australian national, has won league titles with Brisbane Roar in Australia and Yokohama Mariners in Japan. He led the Australian national team to the 2015 Asian Cup final, where they defeated South Korea. This season, he led Celtic to a ‘Domestic Treble’ (three domestic titles). Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy and new chief executive Scott Moon, an Australian, backed him, and Postecoglou, who wanted a step up to the big leagues, told Celtic of his desire.

However, Steven Gerrard, who led Rangers to the Scottish title, was also sacked by Aston Villa in the Premier League. With no big-league experience, there are question marks over Postecoglou’s chances of success. Tottenham fans are also lamenting his lack of name recognition and the fact that he will be a non-factor.

When Postecoglou took over at Celtic in 2021, things were not as good as they are now at Tottenham and there was a lot of negative publicity. However, some have praised him for eventually overtaking Rangers and winning five titles in six seasons.

Celtic manager Postecoglou is the man who brought in Suwon Samsung striker Oh Hyun-gyu, 22, in January. Oh has scored 먹튀검증 seven goals under Postecoglou, helping the club reach the European stage. If Postecoglou takes the reins at Tottenham, he will be managing another South Korean striker, Son Heung-min, 31. Eight years ago, in the 2015 Asian Cup final between South Korea and Australia, Son scored a late equalizer in stoppage time, but Postecoglou’s side won 2-1 in extra time. Postecoglou’s Celtic have scored a whopping 114 goals in 38 league games this season. Postecoglou’s attacking style of play, which is based around a four-back, and his emphasis on Asian players, could be a good fit for Son.

The Sun in the UK claimed that Postecoglou could bring “Celtic prodigy” Kyogo Furuhashi (Japan) to Tottenham. Furuhashi is the top scorer in Scotland with 27 goals this season. Spain’s Real Madrid, who lost Karim Benzema to Saudi Arabia, have launched a bid for Tottenham striker Harry Kane. The estimated transfer fee is in the region of £100 million ($162.4 billion). If Kane leaves and Furuhashi joins Tottenham, the Japanese and Korean strikers could pair up. In other news, the Telegraph reports that Tottenham are planning to release seven players, including Hugo Lloris and Ivan Perisic, to reorganize their squad.
