Why furious Ange Postecoglou argued with Tottenham fan against Man City

Posted by

During his team’s 2-0 loss to Manchester City, Ange Postecoglou was involved in an argument with a Tottenham supporter.

After Spurs’ home defeat, which was earned by two goals from Erling Haaland after a notorious Heung-min Son one-on-one miss, the Australian manager was critical of the team’s mindset.

Much of the talk ahead of Tottenham’s match against Man City was about not letting Arsenal win the league.

Many Tottenham supporters on social media claimed that they want their team to lose so that Arsenal cannot win the league this season.

The manager apparently lost his cool with a fan who wanted his team to lose the match against Man City.

The video was posted on X showing the Spurs manager involved in an argument with a fan behind the dugout.

After the match, Postecoglou said, as reported by the Daily Mail:

“The last 48 hours have revealed that the foundations are fairly fragile. 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.”

When asked about the chants of ‘are you watching Arsenal’ following Haaland’s 51st-minute opener, the Spurs boss added:

“I’m not interested mate. I just don’t care. 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.”

Arsenal would have led the Premier League going into Sunday’s last day of play if Man City had lost or drawn in London against Spurs.

Ange Postecoglou was unhappy with some Tottenham fans.

Tottenham defeat makes Man City title favourites

In order to control their destiny and lead the Premier League table, Man City needed all three points against Tottenham, which they eventually managed to get.

Unai Emery’s team was guaranteed a spot in the top four if Spurs lost, therefore Tottenham needed a dramatic victory to put pressure on Aston Villa in the Champions League battle.

The Spurs defeat confirmed Villa’s place in the the Champions League next season and put Man City in comfortable position going into the final day of the season.

  1. I’ve been a Spurs fan all my life I was there last and I was absolutely disgusted at the behaviour of a majority of our fans.
    Ange had every right to be angry at what he saw if you didn’t want to witness that game you should have stated at home.
    I thought that you cheer your team on whatever the circumstances are.
    I thought the team played very well and were very unlucky, let’s not forget if we had overcome city we to would be going into the final weekend still fighting for a CL place, I’m sure the Spurs players were over the moon to hear some idiots cheering City.
    I thought our fans were true fans but maybe I’m wrong, I will reconsider my season ticket now as if that’s what sort of fans we have, I don’t want to know.

  2. As a Villa fan, I felt TRULY sorry for all the true Spurs fans and appalled by the behaviour of those who were egging on Arsenal to win. Reminded me of the ‘bad old days’ when ‘football’ rivalry had nothing to do with real football but the area of London, Birmingham etc you lived or came from, prejudice and gang rivalry. Those Spurs fans shouting out crap about wanting their OWN team to lose to stop a rival team from winning is madness! They’re the people/animals who before a match would meet to beat the hell out of each other in the name of ‘their’ team.
    During the match I messaged an ARSENAL supporter I know..even all HE cud do was go on about hating Tottenham!
    So called ‘fans’ like those mentioned above by the person saying about giving up their season ticket..should be picked out on camera like they can be these days and refused a season ticket or membership if they have it.
    To the Spurs,Supporter above. Altho I am obvs thrilled Villa got the 4th place..I am sorry your team lost under those circumstances and that atmosphere. It was disgraceful. Good luck next season
