ANGE POSTECOGLOU feels the Celtic board has backed him since he was appointed manager.
Last summer, an extensive rebuild had to take place. It was clear that the board trusted Ange as he brought in fourteen players. Celtic also spent a lot of money during the window, which was expected given the number of players that needed to come into the club.
The manager had his say in most of the signings; that was clear to see.
“I think there’s recognition from the board that if you appoint someone and he has a responsibility then you should back him,”
“When it comes to football matters then I’m the person responsible and will carry the can if things don’t go well.
“They appointed me because they believe in my vision and what I want to create. He is saying I have responsibility for those things. They support me, I can’t do it myself whether that’s recruiting players or having resources. They have put me in this position and I’m responsible for it and they are backing my vision.”
Celtic managers felt that the board hadn’t backed them fully in the past. In recent times Ronny Deila spoke about feeling like the hierarchy didn’t support him, and even Brendan Rodgers didn’t feel backed.
Hopefully, things are changing at Celtic, and managers will be backed fully. When they are, success comes along.
This season has been successful already, with the League Cup in the cabinet. Celtic are still competing on two fronts, aiming for the treble.
