WATCH: Postecoglou explains confrontation with Spurs supporter

Ange Postecoglou says his confrontation with a fan during the game against Manchester City was because the supporter was being abusive.

The Spurs boss was involved in a heated conversation with a fan sat behind the dugout in Tottenham’s 2-0 defeat.

Postecoglou described the experience of the game as his worst as a manager because of the context surrounding it and the atmosphere within the stadium, with a win for City putting them in firm control of the Premier League title race over Tottenham’s fierce rivals Arsenal.

And explaining his argument with the supporter, he said: “I think if you’re going to sit behind the bench, especially in a home game, you got to be respectful because you’re in earshot of the most important people.

“He wasn’t happy we just conceded a goal, so I turned around to find out what his problem was and he used language that he shouldn’t and he was abusive and if I hear that I don’t care who it is I will deal with it.

“But he is more than welcome to come back next time and take his seat up and express his opinions. If he swears, if he is abusive, he will cop the same treatment from me again.

“But at the same time you also feel ‘well mate I cop it at opposition grounds every week give me a break at my home ground’.”
