Tottenham’s Ange Postecoglou has won the October Manager of the Month award. He has now won every monthly manager award this season.
Spurs secured nine points across three matches this past month, win a 1-0 victory at Luton, 2-0 hosting Fulham, and 2-1 away at Selhurst Park.
The streak of awards is an incredible feat for the Australian gaffer, who only joined Spurs this past summer and has never managed a team in the Premier League before. Albeit, he certainly has years of experience under his belt in and out of other organizations and his professionalism and understanding of the game have really shown through in North London.
His attacking style of play has completely changed Spurs’ previous preference for sat-back, counter-attacking football under managers past.
“Only after Ange arrived at this club have I realized that I am still a student of the game. I am 31 years old. I know well about my life and went through many ups and downs. But Ange has already left an immeasurable impact on me as a player and as a human.
He gives me many pieces of valuable advice not only on football but also on things in life that aren’t easy to talk about. It amuses me. He is having an incredible impact on the players. We are so glad to have met him.”
His presence has been immense. Unfortunately, the club are now left in a precarious situation with recent injuries sidelining some of their best players in Micky van de Ven, and now James Maddison who is set to miss England’s UEFA EURO 2024 qualifiers this upcoming international break.
Postecoglou will have to do his best to adjust accordingly for the upcoming matches, and continue to utilize his wealth of experience to help Spurs play at their best.
