Postecoglou vows to stick to Spurs traditions after leaving Celtic

The former Hoops boss said he wants his new club to 'excite' in his first interview since arriving in North London.

Ange Postecoglou has said he wants to “excite” the Tottenham Hotspur fans after leaving Celtic to take over at the North London side.

In his first interview since leaving Glasgow, the Australian said he was “looking forward” to getting started at the Premier League club having led Celtic to a domestic treble.

The 57-year-old added he wanted to bring a style of play that “embodied the values and traditions” of Spurs – who have not won a major trophy since 2008.

Postecoglou remains hopeful of taking backroom staff members including the likes of assistant John Kennedy and first team coach Gavin Strachan with him.

“It’s great to finally get started as manager of this great football club. I’m really looking forward to our task ahead,” he told the club’s website.

“I think it’s an exciting opportunity for us to now set off in a new direction, play football and create an environment that embodies the values and traditions of this fantastic football club.

“Hopefully it’s a team you can all be proud of and more importantly get excited by. I can assure you that right through pre-season we won’t leave any stone unturned, myself, staff, players, to make sure that when the league comes around you will all be as excited as I am about the season ahead.”

“I really look forward to seeing everyone at the stadium and in particular our first home game and look forward to the journey ahead.”
