Postecoglou nominated for prestigious FIFA award alongside Pep Guardiola

Ange Postecoglou has been nominated for the FIFA Best Men’s Coach award for the 2022/23 season, where he impressed with his work at Celtic. 

The now-Tottenham boss has been named alongside Pep Guardiola, Simone Inzaghi, Xavi, and Luciano Spalletti – although his bright start to life in North London should not be taken into account.

Postecoglou won the treble in his final season with Celtic, which earned him a move south to the Premier League and Tottenham Hotspur, where he has won four of his first five league matches.

Not only that, but the Australian climbed his way through the ranks in his home country, even taking on the international position, before expanding his horizons in Japan, Scotland, and now England.

Postecoglou has revolutionised the way Spurs play in N17, bringing the crowd back on side after three years of defensive, counter-attacking football from often divisive managers.

FIFA list the reason for Postecoglou’s nomination as: ‘Won a second successive Scottish Premiership title with Celtic FC | Won the Scottish Cup and Scottish League Cup to earn the club its eighth domestic treble | Named Professional Footballers’ Association Scotland Manager of the Season for 2022-23.’

You can vote for the former Celtic and now-Tottenham manager by heading to the FIFA website.

Spurs Web Opinion:

I don’t think Ange has too much hope against some of the names on that list, but making the shortlist for the top five coaches of the year is a huge achievement, especially from outside the big five European leagues. Let’s hope he is listed again next year!
