Ange seems unconcerned about Spurs fans’ protests over ticket prices.

Ange Postecoglou has said he is okay with Tottenham fans protesting ahead of Saturday’s match against Manchester United.

The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Trust organized an hour-long demonstration against the club’s decision to raise the price of single-day tickets for the 2023/24 season.

THST wants the increase to be rescinded, claiming it will hurt loyal fans, but is making a conscious effort to ensure the protests take place outside the stadium before kick-off.

“It’s not an unusual place for me. ‘My beginnings at Celtic were very similar,’ said coach Postecoglou.


“There was a lot going on off the pitch at the time and it’s only natural when football clubs have a disappointing period that there is going to be that environment with people unhappy, but my role within that is to hopefully get people to focus on what we’re all here for and that is the football club, the players, the team and having success.

“There is no doubt that we will get there quick if we’re united on and off the field absolutely, but I have never and never will tell people how they should feel, how they should behave or the context of how to express their emotions.

“I think that is their right and they have earnt their right to do that. My role within that is to try produce a team that gets us united to what’s most important.

“In every family you can have disagreements but hopefully you all come together at the dinner table and embrace the fact that we are a family and we’re going to need our supporters tomorrow and our role in that is to try to give them something to get excited about.”

While the Spurs fanbase may be aggrieved with the board they have quickly taken to Postecoglou. The Australian appeased away fans for a few minutes against Brentford last weekend, but Tifo is set to feature in his first official match as manager on Saturday.

But Postecoglou conceded:
“It means a lot to me, but I’m not happy with it. It’s almost blind faith, so you love what it means.”

“We haven’t delivered anything yet. Hopefully the day comes when we deliver something as a team, it means something different. “People have a lot of trust in me as an individual and appreciate that, so I’m not going to deny it either. It’s a very good reminder of my responsibility.”


“At this point, I have to reward myself for being based on very few resources with belief and support. We need to be able to receive it.”

Spurs are bolstered by the arrival of Cristian Romero on Saturday after passing concussion protocol after a head-to-head game with Brentford striker Brian Mbeumo this week.
