Celtic manager Enze Postecoglu is rapidly emerging as a candidate for Tottenham’s new manager.
Tottenham is currently going through a lot of confusion in the process of appointing a manager. After sacking coach Antonio Conte, general manager Fabio Paratici, who was in the process of being appointed, became unable to work in the football world due to a disciplinary action by the International Football Federation (FIFA).
Afterwards, Daniel Levy, Tottenham chairman, took the initiative to appoint a manager. While several people were mentioned, a situation was even created where the appointment of director Arne Slot became influential after two months as an acting director. Fans also hoped for the appointment of manager slot.
Coach Slot led Feyenoord to the Dutch Eredivisie Champions in the 2022-23 season. It is being evaluated even higher because it beat Ajax and PSV Eindhoven and recorded overwhelming results.
Already in the Netherlands, evaluations are coming out that he is the second Eric ten Hag coach. This is because coach Ten Hagh also led Ajax, which had been pushed to the periphery of European football, and played aggressive football, bringing results in the European competition beyond the Netherlands. Director Slot is also stepping on a similar train.
However, coach Slot suddenly announced that he would stay. In an interview with AD Sport in the Netherlands on the 25th (Korean time), he said, “I heard a lot of stories that other clubs are interested. Thank you, but my hope is to stay at Feyenoord and continue building the foundations I have built over the past two seasons. There are currently no ongoing negotiations. The discussions were only about the possibility of an extension. I am looking forward to the new season at Feyenoord,” he said, announcing his stay at Feyenoord.
The sudden change in manager Slot’s position seems to be due to the breakdown of negotiations between the two clubs. Tottenham had to pay a penalty to Feyenoord to bring manager Slott. In the first place, coach Slot is known to have a buyout clause like the players at Feyenoord.
Director Slot’s buyout, known for around 6 million pounds (approximately 9.8 billion won), had conditions that could only be triggered after 2024. Feyenoord is known to require only an amount similar to the buyout amount, although it is not yet time to activate it if only the slot manager is taken.
However, when manager Slott tried to take all the coaching staff under him, Feyenoord raised the price. In addition to coaches Marino Pushic and Spike Holshoff, Slott tried to bring in coach Ruben Peters.
Feyenoord then raised the penalty by 2.5 times. Britain’s ‘Daily Mail’ said, “Tottenham are facing a situation where they have to pay as much as 15 million pounds to bring Slot, the target of coaching, from Feyenoord. During that time, it increased significantly,” he explained.
Tottenham had no experience with a big club yet, and it was burdensome to spend a considerable amount of £15 million on manager Slot, who had not yet had a great career as a manager. For whatever reason, Tottenham cannot avoid criticism for not bringing in a formal manager for two months.
Some claim that manager Slot used Tottenham to renew the contract on good terms. British reporter Alex Crook, after watching an interview about Slott’s stay at Feyenoord, said, “It’s bad news again for Tottenham. It looks as if Slott used Tottenham to extend his contract.” .
In fact, Feyenoord is known to have put an offer to renew the contract with a drastically increased salary when Tottenham showed interest in manager Slot. European transfer market expert Fabricio Romano said on social media: “Slot will soon sign a new contract with Feyenoord. An agreement was reached at yesterday’s meeting and will be announced soon. His decision will not be overturned. He will remain at Feyenoord. I will and I will not join Tottenham.”
Returning to the starting point, Tottenham is looking for a manager among the existing candidates. It is Postecoglu who has emerged as the next manager. Postecoglu is the person who brought Oh Hyun-kyu to Celtic. Under Postecoglu, Celtic built an overwhelming first-team system in Scotland.
The British ‘Independent’ said:메이저사이트 “Tottenham are seriously considering Postecoglu as one of the candidates for the next manager after Slot decided to stay at Feyenoord. The hope is that the deal will be smoother than Feyenoord due to the good relationship between the parties involved. Postecoglu is generally regarded as one of the most exciting managers in world football.”
Britain’s ‘BBC’ also said, “Coach Postecoglu has won the league title for the second year in a row at Celtic, and is on the verge of a domestic treble. Considering his progressive tactical approach, Postecoglu is well worth considering.” I highly recommend the director.
