Angers Postecoglu, who brought Oh Hyun-kyu, said Leeds United
Scotland’Daily Code’ said on the 9th (Korean time), “Leeds are struggling to appoint a successor to manager Jesse March as Rayo Vallecano manager Andoni Iraola rejected the offer. .Now Leeds have to think of other goals. Postecoglu is on the shortlist.” Scotland’s ‘The Scotsman’ also said, “Coach Postecoglu is an option that Leeds is considering.”
March, who replaced Marcelo Bielsa last season, saved the team from relegation. Since then, it has gained strength by receiving extensive support. A large number of American players such as Brandon Aaronsson and Tyler Adams entered, 스포츠토토and Wilfredo Nyonto, Rasmus Christensen, Luis Siniestera, and Mark Rocca came. Giorginio Rutte, Weston McKennie and Maximilian Böber joined in the winter transfer window.
Despite solid support, Leeds did not perform well. The scorer gap due to the departure of Rafinha could not be filled, and the vacancy of Calvin Phillips, who went to Manchester City, was large. When there was no improvement in performance and no results, the board of Liz lost patience and sent out the coach. They tried to fill the vacancy quickly by bringing in Iraola, but failed.
Director Postecoglu has emerged as a candidate. Postecoglu is an Australian national and started his coaching career in Australia. He built his career by taking charge of the Australian age team and the Australian club team, and he coached the Australia A national team for four years from 2013. After that, he went to the Japanese J-League and took the helm of Yokohama. He, who was only on the Asian stage, became Celtic manager in 2021.
Although there were doubts about his leadership, Postecoglu managed to get the league trophy back from Rangers. He also won the Scottish League Cup. This season, Celtic is also running for first place. Oh Hyeon-gyu went to Celtic in the winter transfer market and received attention in Korea as Oh Hyeon-gyu’s teacher. Celtic fans feared that Postecoglu would leave Celtic mid-season as suddenly as manager Brendan Rodgers.
“Celtic are so far convinced that Postecoglu is unlikely to leave,” said the Daily Code. Fortunately, it seems that the intention to leave Celtic is not as full as it was during Rodgers’ time. Also, Leeds is not only looking at Postecoglu, but also looking at Feyenorot manager Arni Lot. Still, the possibility remains, so Celtic fans seem to be watching until the end.
