Ange Postecoglou’s backroom staff at Tottenham Hotspur is taking shape, with former Leicester City assistant manager Chris Davies now set to take his place within the coaching team.
The Australian brings with him a wealth of experience, particularly in the art of winning trophies. It is hoped Postecoglou can be the man to stop the rot at Spurs and finally bring back some glory for the Lilywhites after 15 years without silverware.
One thing the 57-year-old has not brought with him, however, is a backroom staff. Postecoglou is known to travel without a consistent group of coaches, and is currently looking to assemble a new team at Tottenham Hotspur.
It was thought Postecoglou would try to bring John Kennedy, his assistant at Celtic, with him to Tottenham. However, it appears Celtic are blocking that move thanks to a clause in their former manager’s contract (Football Insider).
Chris Davies to join Tottenham’s coaching staff
The Telegraph’s Matt Law has taken to Twitter to reveal that Davies is to become part of the new-look coaching team in north London
A previous report from The Telegraph earlier this week claimed that Spurs have told Postecoglou can “bring in two coaches from outside” to form his coaching team with Davies, having been identied for the role.
The 38-year-old had been linked with the top job at Swansea (Wales Online), but now looks set to turn that down in favour of joining the Premier League side.
Ryan Mason is sticking around as a coach for the upcoming season, after taking care of the first-team squad as acting Head Coach for the final six games of the 2022/23 campaign following the dismissals of Antonio Conte and Christian Stellini.

Chris Davies would be a good addition to the coaching staff, having worked at the top level for a few years now. Hopefully, we can get this sorted as soon as possible so the players can get accustomed to the new set up at Spurs.
The focus has to be now on getting a Sporting Director in place within the next two weeks as the club look to make up lost ground on their competitors in the transfer market in the wake of Fabio Paratici’s exit.
