Ange Postecoglou has been appointed as the new Tottenham head coach on a four-year deal. He will take up his duties with the London club from July 1.

His appointment makes him the first Australian manager to coach a Premier League club after his two-year spell with Scottish giant, Celtic in which he won back-to-back Scottish Premiership titles and a domestic treble this season.

Tottenham Hotspurs has been plagued with managerial crisis a little over two seasons ago following the sack of Mauricio Pochettino in 2019. There’s been sacking and hiring for quite some time now, which has seen Jose Mourinho, Nuno Espirito Santo, Antonio Conte and Ryan Mason hold sway in a 3-year span at the the club.

Spurs held talks with Postecoglou, 57, on Monday after agreeing terms with Celtic to bring him to north London. He emerged as the preferred candidate last week with Spurs having considered Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi and Fulham head coach Marco Silva.

Daniel Levy, the Spurs chairman, who has been at the centre of all managerial appointments at the club said of the incoming head coach:

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.

Spurs have said Postecoglou’s coaching staff will be confirmed “in due course.
