Ange Postecoglou appointed as new Spurs coach until 2027
Postecoglou becomes the first ever Australian to manage in the Premier League and his appointment marks an end to the 72 days that Tottenham have gone without a permanent head coach since parting ways with ex-Chelsea Antonio Conte boss back in March.
Postecoglou also becomes Spurs’ fourth permanent manager since sacking club legend Mauricio Pochettino in 2019 and his first job will be to convince England captain Harry Kane to stay at the club following speculation he is set to leave with Real Madrid and Manchester United both reportedly interested.
