Next Tottenham manager: Bookies suspend betting on Ange Postecoglou taking charge at Spurs

Ange Postecoglou is edging closer to becoming the new manager of Tottenham, according to bookmakers.

Spurs have been linked with a host of names in their search for a new head coach after limping to the end of the season under interim boss Ryan Mason.

Arne Slot was the latest contender to come and go after he opted to extend his contract at Feyenoord having led the Dutch club to the Eredivisie title.

Thomas Tuchel, Mauricio Pochettino and Julian Nagelsmann have all been tipped to potentially lead Tottenham but are not in the frame, two of those managers having found jobs elsewhere.

It means there is something of a mystery as to who will eventually get the job, with Mason not high up on the bookies’ list despite his public eagerness to win the role.

Celtic boss Postecoglou’s odds tumbled last week from 25/1 to 4/1 with William Hill, putting him alongside former Leicester coach Brendan Rodgers as their new joint-favourites.

However, Betfair have now suspended their betting on the market with the Australian down to the 1/2 favourite.
