“I don’t care if you ignore me, I’ll show you with results!”…Postecoglou’s confidence in ‘Tottenham’s new manager’

Tottenham Hotspur have expressed confidence in their new manager, Enzi Postecoglou.

“We are delighted to announce the appointment of Mr. Postecoglou as our new head coach,” Tottenham said on the club’s website on July 6 (KST). Becoming the first Australian manager in the English Premier League (EPL), Mr. Postecoglou will join the club on July 1 and has signed a four-year contract.”

After a disappointing season, Tottenham have been scrambling to find a new manager ahead of the new campaign. The search for a new manager has been ongoing since the mid-season departure of Conte, but it hasn’t quite taken shape yet.

One of the first names linked to Tottenham was former Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes. However, Nagelsmann was not convinced by Tottenham’s current director of football, Fabio Paratici, who resigned in the middle of the season. As a result, Nagelsmann was removed from the Tottenham managerial shortlist.

Arne Slott was also considered for the job, but was ultimately rejected. Slott, who led Feyenoord to the Eredivisie title this season, has been in charge of Feyenoord since 2021 and was runner-up in the UEFA Europa Conference last season. However, Tottenham were unwilling to pay a penalty fee for Slott’s appointment, and he remained at Feyenoord and failed to land the job.

A number of other candidates were linked with the club, and Postecoglou was eventually named as Spurs’ new manager. Postecoglou is a native of Australia, making him the first Australian manager in the EPL. He coached the Australian national age group team, the Australian national team, and Japan’s Yokohama Marinos before taking over at Celtic in 2021.

But there are concerns. Spurs have underperformed this season, falling to eighth place, and are in desperate need of a rebound. However, Postecoglou’s lack of big-league experience has led some to question whether he can turn Spurs around. Some fans are also unhappy that he is from Australia, a country far removed from the club’s European pursuits.메이저사이트

Postecoglou addressed the concerns. “As an Australian, there are times when I don’t have the trust of the players in the locker room right away. But that’s okay. Even when I was in Australia, I wasn’t trusted because of the fact that I was Australian.”

As for the prejudice that comes with being Australian, Postecoglou said he was determined to prove himself. “I have to prove to the players that I have a clearer vision to break that bias myself. Then I think I can get rid of the bias against me. I’m not afraid of such prejudices. This is my character.” With a huge task ahead of him to turn Spurs around, Postecoglou is eager to prove himself.
