Ange Postecoglou’s response to one of the most contentious football issues in recent years has been captured on video.
Many football fans like to inquire about a person’s preference between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, but the Celtic manager only spoke of one player.
Instantaneously responding with “Jota buddy,” he departed from what seemed to be the car lot at Celtic Park following the Hoops’ 2-1 victory over Ross County to extend their lead at the top of the SPFL Premiership.
The Portuguese winger is a fan favourite at Parkhead after making a permanent transfer from Benfica in the summer for a cost reported to be about £6 million.
He can always perform a little of magic, which is why Celtic fans admire him and why the manager felt compelled to bring his name up in conversation.
Postecoglou has an excellent connection with Celtic supporters and is always eager to pose for photographs or sign autographs.
Such candid appearances are usually fascinating since they provide a glimpse of the manager off the football field.
