Postecoglou offers counselling to fans who want Spurs to lose intentionally against City

Postecoglou insisted there will be no handouts from his side.

Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou talked about the rubbish trends happening on social media that his club may lose to City so they can stop Arsenal from winning the Premier League. He claimed that any fan wanting the team to lose may “need counselling”.

Man City and Arsenal are fighting hard for the top-flight trophy. The Cityzens have one extra game in hand and they are one point behind to Arsenal.

The Gunners will play their final game against Everton and they need favours from their North London rivals Tottenham. If Tottenham beat Man City, Arsenal need a win against Everton to win the trophy.

Postecoglou insisted there will be no handouts from his side. He said, “If you’re going by social media then 99% of them will [want Spurs to lose] but please don’t tell me that’s your world,” he said. “If it is you need counselling. I understand rivalry but I’ll never understand anyone wanting their own team to lose.

“People are allowed to feel way they do but I’ve been consistent and strong in my belief that it’s important for this club to get to where we want to, not look for a silver bullet, it’s hard work, perseverance, quality not false dawns and know what real success looks like. Anything in between, bragging rights, are meaningless to me. We’ve got a game tomorrow we want to win.

“You think the majority of our fans don’t want us to win? I don’t see it that way, I think the fans inside the stadium will create the same atmosphere they always do.”

Tottenham are also fighting for the Champions League spot and if they lose, Aston Villa will qualify for the top-four. They need to win both games and wish for the defeat of Villa in their final game.
