New Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou revealed that the club needed a new perspective. He also warned that an extensive overhaul of the team might be needed. The Austrian has been given the task of transforming the scottish giants fortunes after a disastrous campaign last season. The Rangers prevented Celtic from winning their tenth league in a row. Postecoglou has managed the Socceroos as well as Yokohoma F Marinos in Japan. He believes his experience in both coutries would help him a lot.
“I guess what I bring is maybe a different perspective,” new Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou said. “I’ve had a different journey from many others. Most of my career has been spent on the other side of the world and in internationals. Every team I’ve coached has had a very clear identity. I think that was one of the reasons I was chosen. In my 25 years in coaching, my teams have always played a certain way.”
Celtics finished a record 25 points behind winners Rangers. To make matters worse, Rangers finished their season unbeaten. Postecoglou understands the task ahead of him is not going to be an easy one.
“It’s fairly extensive,” he said when asked about the task ahead. “It is a season of change. But after a period of success and what happened last year, it was always going to be a period of change. I see it as an opportunity to make changes in the direction I want. We’re working very hard but with the players we have existing, they will all be treated on merit. For the ones coming in, we’ll bring in ones who will fit.”
