Son Heung-min urges Tottenham fans to support Ange Postecoglou after criticizing supporters for cheering Man City against their own team to deny Arsenal the title

  • Ange Postecoglou raged at his players and the club’s fans on Tuesday evening
  • Son believes the Australian is the right manager to guide Tottenham to success
  • IAN LADYMAN: If I was a Spurs fan I’d be worried about the way Ange Postecoglou is doing – Listen to It’s All Kicking Off! podcast

The Tottenham captain has called on fans and the club to support manager Ange Postecoglou.

The north London side suffered a 2-0 defeat to Manchester City on Tuesday night and Postecoglou delivered a damning assessment of those linked to Spurs.

The defeat ended their hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League, but allowed City to win the title ahead of rivals Arsenal if they beat West Ham on Sunday.

Son is convinced Postecoglou is the man to guide Tottenham to glory despite their latest setback and has called for more unity within the club.

The striker told the Evening Standard: “We have to understand that it’s the manager’s first year and he has brought so much positivity and different football.”

“I know it’s early to say, but we need to do much better for next season, because I still believe he can bring as much success to the club.

“I’m all in. I like the way he wants to play. It’s the first time I’ve experienced it.

“Everyone – the club, the players, but also the fans – everyone has to pull together, because we all have to be together in this. He has definitely shown that he can bring success to the club.

Postecoglou suggested Spurs need a major mentality change if they are to close the gap between themselves and the country’s elite following the defeat to City.

He believes the build-up to City’s visit, with the rivalry with Arsenal dominating thoughts around the club, has highlighted the problems he faces as a manager.

Exasperated by the attitude towards the match, some Spurs fans openly said they hoped their own team would lose to prevent Arsenal winning a first title in two decades.

“The last 48 hours have revealed that the foundations are quite fragile,” Postecoglou said.

“It just means I have to go back to the drawing board with some things. It’s outside (the club), inside, everywhere. It’s been an interesting exercise.

At one point in the match, Postecoglou appeared to exchange words with a fan in his technical area.

Son insists he and his teammates did their best: “As players, we all wanted to do our best for the club and for ourselves (against City).

“We didn’t really care about anything else. We only focused on what is best for us, for the team.

“The players, the staff who had so many sessions, so many matches, so many trips, we just wanted to do our best for them. We didn’t want to do anything else.

Son had the chance to put Tottenham level when he scored on goal in the 85th minute and was denied by Stefan Ortega before Erling Haaland sealed victory for Pep Guardiola’s men to put them on the verge of sealing a historic fourth consecutive title.

“I am also human. The goalkeeper made a very good decision and made himself really big,” said the South Korean striker.

“But I take responsibility for not scoring this big chance for the team, because the team was working very hard and trying to get a good result.”
