Sky Sports journalist Anthony Joseph has recently talked about Ange Postecoglou’s potential backroom team at Celtic.

Postecoglou has been appointed as the Celtic manager and the Australian has signed a 12-month rolling contract at the club. He is now in quarantine for ten days before he takes charge of the first team.

Joseph talked about Postecoglou when he appeared on the latest episode of the Only As Good As Your Last Game podcast. One topic of discussion was the Australian’s backroom staff at Celtic and what Postecoglou will do with regards to that.

So Postecoglou will have decisions to make but they would need to be made as soon as possible, because the Hoops play their Champions League qualifiers for next season within a couple of months.
