Report: Some at Everton are admirers of Celtic's Ange Postecoglou
Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou has admirers at Everton as Frank Lampard faces a fight to keep his job at Goodison Park, according to a report from The Sun.
The Toffees boss is coming under real pressure right now. Everton find themselves in the relegation zone in the Premier League and they have not won since late October.
The 4-1 loss against Brighton was one of the lowest points in what has been an underwhelming tenure so far. Nevertheless, Lampard remains in the role at the time of writing.
Everton admirers of Ange Postecoglou
He will have an opportunity to turn things around. But it would appear that potential replacements are being lined up, with The Sun claiming that some behind the scenes at Everton are big fans of Postecoglou.
The report notes there are doubts over whether the Toffees would be able to bring the Celtic boss to Merseyside. Of course, the Hoops are on course to retain their Scottish Premiership crown this season.
Postecoglou has done an amazing job during his time at Parkhead. And you would have to question why he would want to go to Everton if the opportunity presented itself.
The reason that Lampard is not coming under greater pressure amongst the fans is that much of the frustration is being directed at the board. The feeling is that almost no manager will be able to thrive with the current decision makers in place.
And with that, Postecoglou will surely have little motivation to move.
He is an ‘outstanding‘ coach who should be back in the Champions League next year if he stays with Celtic.
Perhaps a Premier League move will happen at some stage. But you would think that it will be a club which can offer a lot more stability than Everton who manage to lure him away.
