Ange Postecoglou’s special surprise for young fan in Sydney

So it was Book Week Down Under about a month ago and this young lad called Ben wanted to dress up as one of his heroes as he headed off to school, in his eyes, looking just like Ange Postecoglou on trophy day back in May, armed with his replica Scottish Premiership medal around his neck and a copy of Ange’s insightful book Changing The Game.

The tweet shown above was clearly noticed by the organisers of the Syndey Super Cup and young Ben was invited to fly to Sydney but wasn’t told the entire story as he had a tremendous surprise in store that he’ll surely going to remember all his life!

Ben’s dad, Jason explains what happened next.

“Ben got flown to Sydney, thinking he was going to film some stuff about his book week costume and the upcoming Sydney Super Cup, instead he got surprised by Ange, and then got to interview Ange!”
