Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Eric Dier has reportedly held talks with the club’s chairman, Daniel Levy, about the potential appointment of Ange Postecoglou as the new manager. Postecoglou is currently the head coach of Yokohama F. Marinos in Japan’s J1 League.
According to sources, Dier has expressed his support for Postecoglou and believes that he would be a good fit for the club. The Australian manager has a strong track record, having won numerous titles in his native country and guiding the Australian national team to victory in the 2015 Asian Cup.
Postecoglou’s attacking style of play and emphasis on youth development are said to have impressed Dier, who sees him as a manager who can take Tottenham to the next level. The 55-year-old has a reputation for nurturing young talents and giving them opportunities to shine on the big stage.
It is believed that Levy is seriously considering Postecoglou as a potential candidate for the vacant managerial position at Tottenham. The club is currently without a permanent manager following the departure of Jose Mourinho in April.
However, it remains to be seen whether Postecoglou would be interested in leaving Yokohama F. Marinos to take up the role at Tottenham. He signed a contract extension with the Japanese club last year, committing his future to them until the end of the 2023 season.
Tottenham has been linked with several other managers in recent weeks, including Antonio Conte and Paulo Fonseca. Levy is known for his meticulous approach to hiring managers and will likely take his time to make a decision.
Dier’s endorsement of Postecoglou adds an interesting dynamic to the manager search at Tottenham. The midfielder has been at the club since 2014 and has become an influential figure both on and off the pitch. His opinion could carry weight with Levy as he considers the various candidates for the job.
Tottenham will be hoping to appoint a new manager soon as they look to rebuild and challenge for major honors next season. The club finished seventh in the Premier League last season, missing out on Champions League qualification.
As the search continues, all eyes will be on Levy and the decision he ultimately makes regarding the next manager of Tottenham Hotspur.
