Tottenham have confirmed the appointment of Greek-Australian Ange Postecoglou as their new manager on a four-year deal that heralds a fresh start for everyone at the club.

He proudly becomes the first Australian manager in the Premier League with Celtic expected to receive around £5 million in compensation.

Just before Tottenham confirmed his appointment Postecoglou thanked the Celtic board for the opportunity and showed what a classy man he was with a heartfelt message.

“I would like to sincerely thank everyone at the club for everything they have given me,” he said. “In particular, Dermot, Peter and Michael, and the Celtic board have shown me tremendous support in every aspect of my time at Celtic and I will forever be grateful for this.”

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy explained why he settled on Postecoglou: “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.”

When Antonio Conte left Tottenham, the club looked at the likes of Arne Slot, Xabi Alonso, and even Julian Nagelsmann but in Ange Postecoglou they have a man who has worked his way through challenges and built a good reputation for himself.
