WATCH: Postecoglou says Spurs are ‘fragile’ and responds to chants about Arsenal

Ange Postecoglou says Tottenham’s 2-0 defeat to Manchester City shows the club’s foundations are “fragile”.

Erling Haaland’s double ensured City moved two points clear of Arsenal at the top of the Premier League with just one game left to play.

The defeat for Spurs, meanwhile, means they have missed out on qualifying for the Champions League.

And Postecoglou says there are weaknesses at the club which need fixing.

“I think the last 48 hours have shown to me that the foundations are fairly fragile.

“That’s just what I feel. The last 48 hours have revealed a fair bit to me, that’s alright, it just means I’ve got to go back to the drawing board with some things.

“It’s outside, inside, everywhere. It’s been an interesting exercise.

“It’s just my observations. I’m not going to tell you who, because that’s for me and I’m the one that has got to do it. You can make your own fairly accurate assessment of what’s happened.

“I can understand I’ve probably misread the situation as to what I think is important in your endeavour to become a winning team, but that’s okay, that’s why I’m here.

Asked about Spurs fans chanting ‘Are you watching Arsenal?’ during the loss because of the impact it has on the title race, Postecoglou added: “I’m not interested mate, I don’t care.

“Maybe I’m out of step but I just don’t care. I just want to win and I want to be successful at this football club. That’s why I was brought (here).

“What other people feel and what their priorities are have zero interest to me. I know what’s important to build a winning team and that’s what I need to concentrate on.

“It is what it is. I can’t dictate what people do. They’re allowed to express themselves any way they want.

“But yeah, when we’ve got late winners in games it’s because the crowd has certainly helped us.”
