SEN host Andy Maher is hearing strong rumours Ange Postecoglou has received an invitation from Liverpool to discuss his potential interest in soon to be available manager position.
The Tottenham manager has led Spurs to a fourth-place spot through 24 games this campaign, winning fans across the football world with his no-nonsense approach to media and attacking tactics.
Maher has previously received information from the same source about Postecoglou’s movements and that reference says Liverpool have approached the Aussie who could be a top candidate to replace the departing Jurgen Klopp.
“I’m going to take a punt here because my man has been all over it, my Ange Postecoglou snout,” Maher said on SEN The Run Home.
“For three or four years now – this is just about at every turn of the wheel - the mail that has been coming out of his mouth - except with a minor marginal exception here and there – it’s come true.
“So, this is what I've received today with a, ‘Take it to the bank’, right.
“I'm not going to mention who it is (but the message reads), ‘Postecoglou's manager Frank Trimboli has formally received “an invitation to discuss his potential interest in the Liverpool Football Club managerial position”.”
Maher’s source previously had the correct information about Postecoglou’s move from Yokohama F. Marinos in Japan to Celtic and also had the Aussie departing for the Premier League last year.
“Has he got it wrong anywhere? In Japan he said he’d go to Celtic,” Maher explained.
“When he was at Celtic, he said he's going to the Premier League. He said Leeds to begin with … but then he mentioned a couple of other clubs that were nipping around the edges.
“He got the destination right without having the specific club, so I'll give him a tick for that.”
Having grown up as a Liverpool fan, Maher thinks Postecoglou must accept the job at Anfield if he’s offered the role despite all of the goodwill that’s been built up across his six months at Tottenham.
“Let's not lose sight of the fact about this - he is a passionate Liverpool man,” Maher said.
“Liverpool fans have shown that, ‘If you are one of us … and you have success’, you are on the fast track to become an immortal at Anfield.
“He’s got to go (if Liverpool make him an offer). He may never get another chance.”
Jurgen Klopp will depart Liverpool at the end of the 2023/24 season. The Reds are currently first on the Premier League table through 24 games.
