One of the biggest honors in football is managing Celtic – Ange Postecoglou
Ange Postecoglou has characterized his appointment as Celtic’s new manager as “one of the biggest honors in football,” and has stated that the effort to return the Hoops to the top of Scottish football would begin immediately.
Following a 106-day search for Neil Lennon’s replacement, the Greek-born Australian has been named as the man to lead Celtic forward.
On June 17, the Parkhead players will report for pre-season training.
Postecoglou, on the other hand, will not be present to greet them on their first day back, as the 55-year-old is preparing for a 10-day quarantine upon his return from Japan, where he has been coaching Yokohama F. Marinos in the J-League.
However, the former Brisbane Roar, Melbourne Victory, and Australia national team coach claims he is already hard at work rebuilding a squad that was shattered by last year’s failed 10-in-a-row attempt.
“The opportunity that has been given to me is one of the greatest honors in sports, and the responsibility to lead our fantastic football club into the future is one that I will cherish dearly,” said Postecoglou, who has signed a 12-month rolling deal.
One of the biggest honors in sports is the opportunity that has been given to me.
“There is no doubt that Celtic is one of ‘the’ names in world football. A behemoth of a club, a true footballing institution, and so much more — genuine history, substance, authenticity, and soul.
“I understand that Celtic is a way of life for many people, and I understand the demands that come with this role – I am prepared to do everything in my power to meet those standards.
“I will do everything in my power to return our wonderful club to the top while also providing the type of football that our fans demand. We want to entertain our supporters and win; these are the goals I’ve always set for myself and am now working toward.”
Postecoglou, on the other hand, is up against a formidable opponent. (This is a brief piece.)
