Ange Postecoglou’s Melbourne homecoming soured by Tottenham loss


It definitely wasn’t the homecoming that Ange Postecoglou was expecting when he arrived back in Melbourne for his Tottenham side to play Newcastle United on Wednesday night.

Instead of a victory for his Premier League side, Postecoglou’s men went down 5-4 in a penalty shootout at the MCG after the sides finished regular time locked at 1-1.

“I thought it was an enormous effort from them, when you consider the travel we needed to do to get here and obviously straight after a pretty important Premier League game for us, to play tonight,” Postecoglou said.

“They’re going back. A lot of them have got maybe a few days off before Euros or Copa America and the rest will get their breaks.”

Postecoglou also indicated he would quickly get back to business after a short break.

“I got the bus ride back to the hotel and that’ll be it, mate, and then we get going. It never really stops, the reality of it is,” he said.

“But I’ll have some time off. I’ll meet up with the family on the weekend and we’ll go to Greece and switch off for a couple of weeks.”
