Former Manchester City and West Ham winger Trevor Sinclair has light-heartedly paid tribute to Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou.

On Sunday afternoon, the English Premier League season came to an end, with a dramatic finish on the final day between Manchester City and Liverpool.

In the end, it was Pep Guardiola’s side who came out on top, pipping Jurgen Klopp’s men to the league title by just one point.

In the aftermath of that result, the talkSPORT host took to social media to celebrate his former side’s success with an Ange Postecoglou related post.

Sinclair, who is a self-confessed Celtic fan, posted a picture of Guardiola and Postecoglou alongside one another, from Ange’s time with Yokohama F Marinos when the two sides faced off in a friendly.

On the post, he stated, “It all makes sense”, jokingly suggesting that the 56-year old’s previous encounters with the Spanish manager were part of the reason for the success last season.

Of course, Postecoglou has his links to the Premier League champions, with Yokohama being one of the many sides involved in the City Group.

Guardiola has also previously praised the Celtic manager for his impact at that club, from their friendly match back in 2019.

As mentioned, Sinclair is light-heartedly praising the 56-year old. But at the same, when you watch both Pep and Ange’s teams, there are similarities in the styles of play.

In the last few months, there have even been suggestions that people at Manchester City are taking notice of Postecoglou’s work and are impressed.

One thing that cannot be doubted about both men is the success they have had throughout their careers, including an impressive league and cup double for Postecoglou at Celtic this season.
