Ange Postecoglou dishes out brilliant sarcastic response to question about ‘dented’ top four hopes


Ange Postecoglou joked his side should just ‘go for sixth’ after being asked about his side’s top four hopes this season.

Tottenham fell to a 3-0 defeat to Fulham on Saturday, with Timo Werner’s miss summing up a poor performance that saw them miss out on leapfrogging over fourth place Aston Villa.

The Villans remain two points above Spurs, who beat them 4-0 just last weekend.

Tottenham also stay six points clear of sixth place Manchester United thanks to the Red Devils’ Premier League game being postponed due to their FA Cup clash against Liverpool on Sunday, which you can listen to live on talkSPORT.

But when Postecoglou was asked if the loss to Fulham will dent his side’s top four hopes after the game, Postecoglou couldn’t help but dished out a sarcastic answer as he dismissed the idea.

With a smile on his face, he joked: “Yeah, it’s all over. We’ll just go for sixth!”

“What am I supposed to say to that?” he continued. “We’re what, two points behind Villa? What does that mean with 10 games to go?”

When asked about how it could affect his side psychologically, the Australian said: “Psychologically I don’t really worry about that stuff. There’s 10 games to go and so much football to be played.

“If we had have won today nothing would be guaranteed, if we lost last week then nothing was guaranteed.

“There’s 10 games to play and I don’t worry about that stuff.

“For me it’s not just about falling into a place in a ladder – we could finish fourth and everyone is happy – great, but it’s about how we play.

“That’s what I’m interested in.”
