‘Ange-Ball’ instilled into Celtic winger now struggling with managerial change

Daizen Maeda has revealed that he has been struggling to adapt to the management of Brendan Rodgers.

Tottenham Hotspur probably looked north for their next manager since Ange Postecoglou had success in Paradise. Scotland saw success with Postecoglou’s “Ange-Ball,” as the Hoops won the Triple Crown last year.


Postecoglou used the catchphrase “We never stop” to instill his merciless style of play in the players. This is perhaps the reason why the Hoops performed so well the previous year and why Ange’s Spurs have enjoyed a successful start to the current campaign.

Daizen Maeda has acknowledged that he is having problems adjusting to the transition despite the team’s mostly positive input. The Celtic forward asserts that he continues to play in Ange’s manner and finds it challenging to adjust.

Maeda gave an interview to the Sunday Post where he explained how the new boss has affected him as a player. “I am a new manager, but the manager is undoubtedly returning to Celtic for a second stint.

“I personally believe that the former manager’s techniques have been somewhat ingrained in my game. Thus, it is evident that I must adapt to the new style. The league, though, has already

Even if the Hoops’ season has gotten off to a lackluster start, they just need some time to adjust and meet Brendan Rodgers’ expectations. Hopefully, the Hoops bounce back from their lackluster performance against St. Johnstone on Sunday at Ibrox and truly get Brendan’s second stint at Celtic off to a strong start, much like they did the last time.
