Pep Guardiola lauds Ange Postecoglou’s impact at Tottenham

Pep Guardiola expressed his belief that the Premier League has been enhanced by the arrival of Ange Postecoglou at Tottenham.

Since taking charge in the summer, Postecoglou has made a positive impact, guiding Spurs to an unbeaten streak in their first ten games while adopting a dynamic playing style. Manchester City, led by Guardiola, are the next team to face Postecoglou’s side as they host Tottenham on Sunday.

The City manager said: “He came here and, from nothing, in few months you recognise perfectly his team.

“Even the games that they didn’t win lately, I’ve been impressed how good many, many things they do are, how many chances they create and how aggressive (they are) in all departments.

“Every team plays with the desire of the manager. His have done in the past, in Japan, of course in Glasgow with Celtic and now. I think he makes football a better place.

“As a manager and a spectator I enjoy a lot watching them play with the approach they have. I think all the Spurs fans and the people in England can admit that his impact has been quick and really good.”

Guardiola counts Postecoglou’s Tottenham among several other title contenders

Despite Tottenham Hotspur experiencing a downturn in form with three consecutive losses in the Premier League, Pep Guardiola anticipates that Ange Postecoglou’s tactical approach will remain consistent. Guardiola is gearing up for a challenging encounter as his Manchester City side prepares to face Tottenham.

The Spaniard, whose side are a point behind Premier League leaders Arsenal, said: “Absolutely not (will they change). This is not going to happen. I’d be surprised.

“It is a more difficult competition to win now, every season it is getting better. There are more teams involved and every single game is so difficult.

“Since I arrived, when (Mauricio) Pochettino was in Tottenham always, Spurs have been there. They’re a fantastic team.

“Of course they have important absences but I saw the first 15, 20 minutes against Aston Villa and they created an amount of chances. It’s really good for football, definitely.

“I encourage our fans to come to the stadium because we will have fun.”

Guardiola and Postecoglou encountered each other only once before, during a pre-season friendly in 2019 when Manchester City faced Yokohama F Marinos, the Australian’s former team, in the Japanese city.
