The Greek-Australian, 57, led Celtic to the domestic treble in Scotland this season (Cup, Championship, League Cup) and replaces Antonio Conte at the Premier League club.

The Italian left the club by “mutual agreement” at the end of March, with Cristian Stellini first and Ryan Mason later taking over the job temporarily.

Postecoglou will officially join on July 1st to the ‘Spurs‘, who finished eighth in the Premier League.

“Ange brings a positive mentality and a fast, attacking style of play,” Tottenham president Daniel Levy was quoted as saying in a statement from the London club.

“He has a strong track record of player development and an understanding of the importance of the academy link, all of which are important for our club,” he added. “We can’t wait to have Ange join us as we prepare for the upcoming season.”

In their search for a manager, Tottenham tried to recruit Dutch Feyenoord manager Arne Slot and former Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann, unsuccessful attempts that led the London club to set its sights on Postecoglou.

The latter has gained popularity among Celtic fans not only because of the titles they have won, five in just two seasons, but also because of his attacking style of football.

“It was an honor to be asked to be Celtic’s manager and during these two years I have given everything I had to bring success to our fans,” Postecoglou told Celtic’s website on Tuesday.

But in London will face a greater challengethat of returning Spurs to the ‘Top 4’ in which they were in March, before the departure of Conte, which finally left them without any European competition for the first time since 2009.
