Ange Postecoglou Provides Honest Verdict On Touchline Bust-Up With Tottenham Fan After Bizarre Atmosphere In Defeat To Man City


Ange Postecoglou has provided an honest verdict on the touchline bust-up with Tottenham supporters after a discouraging atmosphere in the club’s defeat to Manchester City.

The 58-year-old revealed his disappointment at Spurs mentality in the build-up to their recent setback, hitting out at the really fragile foundations at the club.

What happened?

Tottenham Hotspur’s hopes to secure a spot in the 2024/2025 UEFA Champions League campaign hit the rock on Tuesday, May 14, after they suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Pep Guardiola‘s side which handed Aston Villa fourth place in the English Premier League.

Amid that, there was a bust-up between the coach and fans due to a strange atmosphere around the Tottenham stadium.

There were reports that before the match, some season ticket holders were selling their tickets while those who were inside the stadium started singing anti-Arsenal chants after Erling Haaland had put Man City ahead in the 51st minute of play.

Ange Postecoglou was furious about the gesture and showed his frustrations saying they had emerged 48 hours earlier. Hence, he questioned the proportion of Spurs fans who wanted their side to lose to halt Arsenal’s title hopes.

Recall that Tottenham Hotspur’s form has been terrible in recent weeks, winning just three of their previous ten matches.

Talking about the team after their game against Man City, Ange Postecoglou said; “No, I think the last 48 hours have revealed to me the foundations are fairly fragile, that’s what I feel”.

“That’s alright, that just means I’ve got to go back to the drawing board with some things. Outside (the club), inside. It’s been an interesting exercise.”

He added: “I probably misread the situation as to what I think is important in our endeavour to becoming a winning team. But that’s ok, that’s why I’m here.”

Postecoglou further revealed how he felt about Spurs fans singing anti-Arsenal chants, he said; “I’m just not interested. Maybe I’m out of step, I just don’t care. I want to win and be successful at this football club.”

What’s next for Tottenham and Ange Postecoglou?

Losing to Manchester City means Tottenham have lost the top-four finish to Aston Villa and will also be participating in the 2024/2025 UEFA Europa League season.

In addition, Postecoglou’s men will be seen next in action against Sheffield United on the last day of the 2023/2024 season on Sunday, May 19, 2024.
