Former Fulham and Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer claims Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou won’t leave the Scottish champions midway through the season.
The Australian has been linked with the vacant manager’s job at Leeds, and it has prompted fears that he could up sticks in a similar manner to Brendan Rodgers four years ago. However, Schwarzer says there is no chance of that happening:
“I think if Ange is ever going to leave the club it will be during an off-season – and it will be done amicably, it will be done in the right manner. That’s how he does business.”
Postecoglou certainly doesn’t strike you as a man who would move teams midseason, especially when there is so much to play for. The League Cup final against Rangers is later this month, and there are hopes of securing another domestic treble this campaign.
On top of that, you would also question whether Leeds would be a big enough club to tempt Postecoglou south of the border anyway. Historically, they do have a good reputation but, after languishing in the lower divisions for so many years, you wouldn’t say they can be compared to a team the size of Celtic these days.
