Arsenal Boss Postecoglou gives honest vedit on Tottenham Boss Ange after epic derby battle


Mikel Arteta, a rival manager, credited Ange Postecoglou for instilling “spirit” in a “well-coached” Tottenham team after Spurs twice overcame deficits to tie Arsenal at 2-2.

Arteta was delighted with Tottenham’s performance under former Socceroos coach Postecoglou despite being frustrated that his Gunners side allowed Spurs to equalize twice in the north London derby at Emirates Stadium.

Spurs have won four and drew two of their six Premier League games this season, remaining unbeaten.

They are a tremendously good side, in my opinion, Arteta added.

They have excellent coaching. Within the group, you can sense the enthusiasm and team spirit.

Arteta said that it was “too early” in the season to predict how far Postecoglou could guide Spurs in his inaugural campaign as manager.

Following Arteta earlier this week, it said, “I truly like him. He was a player I had and know, and they constantly have such glowing things to say about him. That is not an accident.

“You can tell right immediately that he fits in with the group. The fact that we have top-tier managers is what makes this league so wonderful.

Spurs “outstanding… against a top team, at a difficult venue,” according to Postecoglou.

Son Heung-min, the captain of Tottenham, scored twice, while Arsenal’s goals came from an own goal by Cristian Romero and a penalty awarded to Bukayo Saka following VAR intervention that resulted to Romero being adjudged to have committed a handball offense.

Postecoglou said to SpursPlay, “We had to work our way into the game, and I thought we showed all components of it.

“I thought we did a great job defending when we had to. We played our football and kept trying even when it didn’t work, which was fantastic. This was all supported by a strong work ethic and excellent character.

“There were times when we needed to be incredibly robust and powerful. When we finally gained control of the game, I thought our play was terrific, and we had the talent to take advantage in the front third.

Romero was given a handball penalty after being hit in the arm by a close-range Ben White shot, which perplexed Postecoglou.

Former Brisbane Roar and Melbourne Victory coach: “It seems like sometimes it hits your hand and it’s a penalty, and then other times it’s not.”

“Clarity of any kind would be excellent. Right now, I have no notion what a handball is.
