MATT O’RILEY has spoken more on the phone call between him and Ange. The phone call sealed the deal between the parties and the midfielder made his way to Glasgow.
The phone call wasn’t the only influencing factor in bringing the former MK Dons player to Celtic, the size and the stature of the club had a role to play. Speaking today on Celtic TV, Matt O’Riley informed those in attendance what was said on the call.
“I was already heavily interested just purely because it’s Celtic. I just wanted to speak to the gaffer to see where I’d fit in with the club and the system. He sold it in about five minutes. He spoke really well and seemed very genuine.”
The phone call is a personal touch Postecoglou does with every signing. It is important for the manager to get an impression of who he is bringing to the club. It is also important for the player, the ideas a manager has, for the club, and for the player, are key factors for a player to make their decision.
