Ange makes EPL history then new experience in British football for ex-Celtic boss

Former Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou is experiencing a difficult moment with Tottenham Hotspur after their defeat to Wolves this afternoon. The 58-year-old has been brilliant since swapping Glasgow for North London in the summer with Spurs sitting second; however, with five players out of this afternoon’s game, they lost 2-1 away to Wolves.

On Friday, Postecoglou made history by being the first manager to win three Manager of the Month awards after the Premier League confirmed the award for their unbeaten October.

It is a staggering achievement and credit is due to Ange, who is striving to be recognised as an elite coach.

However, travelling to Molineux for the early kick-off, Ange had to call upon a number of players that were deemed not good enough by Antonio Conte last season (and that Ange probably couldn’t shift). Despite taking the lead, Spurs capitulated in injury time as Wolves came back and took the points.

It is the first time since arriving in British football that Ange has lost back-to-back games, having never experienced it in his time at Celtic. Given the impressive start to life in London, you would expect that Spurs will stump up cash and back their manager as they look to compete with other top teams.
