Ange Postecoglou ‘living the dream’ at Celtic as he makes Premier League move

CELTIC MANAGER ANGI Postecoglou has dismissed speculation linking him with other jobs in England, insisting he is “living the dream” at Parkhead.

The Australian’s name has been mentioned in connection with the recent vacancy at Brighton, while he has also been touted as a potential candidate to replace the under-pressure Brendan Rodgers at Leicester.

In an interview with Fox Sports in his homeland, Postecoglou dismissed speculation he could move on, noting he is “at a really massive football club at the moment”.

“Sometimes, because we play in the Scottish Premiership and it’s probably not one of the top European leagues, we forget how big Celtic are,” he said.

“But in terms of institutional football clubs, Celtic play in front of 60,000 people, we have the opportunity to win trophies and we are in the Champions League. It’s a big football club.”

When asked about the Leicester link, Postecoglou said: “It’s not really on my radar. It’s a bit like that with our players, I keep telling them that if they do what they’re good at then everything else will take care of itself, whatever their ambitions are or what my ambitions are.

“My ambition has always been the same wherever I am, to achieve maximum success. I did not chart a course for myself that would lead me to where I am today. I was just trying to do what I was doing to the best of my ability, and that’s where the opportunities come from.

“Now, as I said, I’m at a big football club. I am living my dream and enjoying every minute. I’m just determined to have as much success as I can while I’m there.”

Postecoglou returned home to Australia for the international break just after his side suffered their first Premier League defeat in a year, losing 2-0 to St Mirren on Sunday.

The manager is ready to send his team back on the pitch as they look to get back on track at home to Motherwell on Saturday week.

“I don’t take losses well, I never did, whether it was my first job at South Melbourne or now,” he said. “We need to sit on it for a couple of weeks, but at the same time we’ve been in extraordinary mode.

“The players have been incredible over the last 15-16 months with the progress we’ve made and that’s just part of it. Learn from it, grow from it, and come back stronger.”

When they return to action, Celtic will face 14 games in just over a month and a half before the World Cup break when the Hoops travel to Australia to compete in the Sydney Super Cup.

“It’s a game every three days, including Champions League games,” Postecoglou said. “Between now and the World Cup, or when we get here, it’s a huge programme. It’s a pretty key part of the season for us.

“I’m looking forward to getting back to it.”
