Ange Postecoglou’s unbeaten home run has extended to 50 league games after his Spurs side dramatically beat Sheffield United yesterday. The Australian manager was unbeaten domestically at Celtic Park in two years and has carried this form to North London.
In fact, you have to go back to 2020 to find the last game that saw Ange lose a domestic home game. That was when Yokohama lost 3-2 to Kashima Antlers in November 2020. Since then, the 58-year-old has been the architect behind a formidable 42 wins and 142 goals across three clubs.
One of Ange’s mantras from his time at Celtic was ‘We Never Stop’ and the Spurs fans were able to see this in full flow yesterday as two injury time goals flipped a 1-0 deficit and saw them collect all three points. The second goal, in particular, is reminiscent of some of the late shows that Ange’s teams pulled off across two seasons at Celtic.
The victory caps off a successful week for Ange personally. After being nominated for the FIFA Men’s Coach of the Year Award for 2023, the manager was given the Manager of the Month award for August with Spurs. In two years, Ange won five trophies with Celtic including a Treble before departing for Tottenham. The 2022-23 season has resulted in his nomination for the FIFA prize and Big Ange was quick to praise Celtic, the staff, players and fans for the recognition that this award brings.
