Ange’s first Spurs game will be in… Australia! Postecoglou to return to his homeland with new club in pre-season friendly against Premier League rivals West Ham in Perth
Ange Postecoglou is set to take his Tottenham squad to Australia with the new Spurs boss back in familiar territory for his first gig in charge of the Premier League club.
Postecoglou, 57, was named the new manager of the north London club on Tuesday, having impressed club chiefs with his attractive brand of football and eye for a transfer gem during his two-year stint with Celtic.
