Furious Ange Postecoglou confronts Spurs fan ‘cheering for Man City’ in defeat

Ange Postecoglou confronted a Tottenham supporter who was seemingly rooting for Manchester City against his own team.

The chief concern for many Spurs supporters before their match with Pep Guaradiola’s team was thwarting arch-rivals Arsenal’s potential title advantage on the eve of the final Premier League weekend. With just a single point separating City from the Gunners ahead of the game last night, any missteps from the Citizens would have brought Mikel Arteta’s squad to the cusp of their first championship win in two decades.

As it happened, City emerged victorious with a 2-0 scoreline, meaning a win against West Ham at the weekend will record them as the first side to clinch four back-to-back English top flight titles. Erling Haaland’s brace sealed Tottenham’s fate, eliminating their slim chance of overhauling Aston Villa in fourth spot and qualifying for the Champions League.

However, it was the jubilant reactions among some home fans to Haaland’s goal that riled up Postecoglou, along with a fan who allegedly was cheering on City over the home side. The Aussie boss furiously confronted one spectator behind the dugout in an animated exchange.

According to the Daily Record, the former Celtic manager raged: “Whose side are you on? ” He maintained his exasperated tone during a post-match interview and was simmering with anger during a press conference when he admitted the events around the game had make him reconsider what he thought of the club.

“The last 48 hours have revealed that the foundations are fairly fragile,” Postecoglou said. “It just means I’ve got to go back to the drawing board with some things. It’s outside (the club), inside, everywhere. It’s been an interesting exercise.”

“As for whether that was tied to the rivalry with Arsenal and the fan’s attitude towards the City game, he continued: “I’m not interested mate. I just don’t care,’ Postecoglou added.

“It’s just my observations mate. I’m not going to tell you, because it’s for me. I’m the one who’s got to do it. You can make your own assessments of what’s happened.”

“I probably misread the situation as to what I think is important in your endeavour to become a winning team, but that’s ok. That’s why I’m here.”

‘I’m just not interested mate. Maybe I’m out of step, but I just don’t care, I just want to win.

I want to be successful at this football club, it’s why I was brought in. So what other people, how they want to feel, and what their priorities are, are of zero interest to me.

“I know what’s important to build a winning team, that’s what I need to concentrate on. I can’t dictate what people do. They [the fans] are allowed to express themselves any way they want. But yeah, when we’ve got late winners in games it’s because the crowd’s helped us.”

“I already know what I want to do, it’s just I’ve got to make some adjustments to how I do it.”
