Is Ange Postecoglou Leaving Celtic For The Premier League?
Ange Postecoglou has thrived in Scotland since arriving but now fans are wondering is Ange Postecoglou leaving Celtic for the Premier League?
Postecoglou is a very popular man at Celtic Park at the moment given all the success he has had since taking charge at the club. Unfortunately for Celtic fans, that managerial success comes with unwanted attention from Premier League clubs.
Now, The Australian-Greek national is being heavily linked with a move down south to coach Leeds United who have just sacked manager Jesse Marsch.
We got the chance to catch up with Glasgow native and former Scotland international Pat Nevin who weighed in on the potential of Postecoglou making the move down south to the Premier League.
Nevin also gave us his take on how Matt Doherty will fare in La Liga after his move to Atletico Madrid, Chelsea’s January spending spree and who the club should be in the market for in the summer.
Ange Postecoglou To Leave Celtic For Leeds?
Q. Is Ange Postecoglu a Premier League manager in the making? Should he be considering the Leeds United job after the sacking of Jesse Marsch?
Ange Postecoglu is good enough to be a Premier League manager, but I hope he does not go because I speak for every Celtic fan in the world, they all love Postecoglu, he’s perfect for Celtic.
But he’ll want to go to the Premier League at some point, he has to. I would love to see his style in the English game, but he’ll need time.
Whatever team he takes will need building up because he won’t get the chance to manage one of the top teams yet, a team like Leeds will have to give him time. He’ll be checked out by Leeds and other Premier League clubs, but I hope he can stay at Celtic.
Former Celtic manager Gordon Strachan spoke highly of Ange Postecoglou in a recent interview where he also named the greatest manager in Celtic history.

Matt Doherty Can Have Success In An Easier League
Q. Matt Doherty has made a surprise move to Atletico Madrid. Can he be a success in La Liga?
Matt Doherty can be a success in La Liga.
He might not be as good as Kieran Trippier, and he’s a bit older, but he’s going to an easier league and is not as stressful or physically demanding as the Premier League.
In a couple of weeks time, he’ll be playing against Real Madrid, doesn’t sound so bad for someone who sat on the bench for Tottenham.
Doherty is intelligent and has made the right decision to leave. But he’s escaped the intense training and playing style under Antonio Conte, and now he’s gone to an even more demanding coach in Diego Simeone! I wish him luck with that.
Chelsea’s Signings Make For Exciting Times Ahead At Stamford Bridge
Q. What do you think of Joao Felix, Mykhailo Mudryk and Enzo Fernandez’ start to life at Chelsea?
It’s been a long time since I’ve been this excited and ‘wowed’ by Chelsea signings like these. Before Mykhailo Mudryk joined I thought ‘really?’, I could not see the reason for the signing. I can see that Chelsea needed more bodies in, but not him. Now I’ve sat back and realised it makes total sense, he’s a great player and world-class at his age already.
Look how crazy this is: Gabriel Solina 18, Trevoh Chalobah 23, Wesley Fofana 22, Benoit Badiashile 21, Reece James 23, Enzo Fernandes 22, ‘old man” Mason Mount 24, Lewis Hall 18, Joao Felix 22, Mykhailo Mudryk 22 and Kai Havertz 23. I’ve not even mentioned Carney Chukwuemeka, David Fofana, Conor Gallagher, Noni Madueke… that team is wild and it is mental what they could go on and do.
Chelsea still have Christopher Nkunku to come too, they’re hoovering up all the best talent in the world.
They might have overpaid for some players, but if only 60% of the players work out, you still have an amazing base for a team.
Chelsea Should Look For A Striker Instead Of Declan Rice
Q. David Moyes says it would take a record British bid, more than Chelsea’s £107m Enzo Fernandez fee, to secure Declan Rice. Should the Blues spend that much on him?
I would not be disappointed if Chelsea were able to sign Declan Rice too. But Chelsea have just signed Enzo Fernandes who is a similar position to Rice. Would Rice improve the overall quality of the Chelsea midfield? Yeah, he would, but Chelsea would need to stay within their spending allowance even with how tempting the signing of a 24-year-old Declan Rice is.
If Chelsea had the choice of signing another midfielder or a striker, I think they should look for a striker because they’re the hardest position to buy.
