Fan frustration simmers as Bale hails Postecoglou’s Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur have made great progress under Ange Postecoglou this season, and the North Londoners will be looking to build on their headway going into the upcoming summer transfer window and replicate a similar start to the season as they enjoyed last year.

A section of Spurs fans have been dismayed by the former Celtic boss publicly criticizing Tottenham supporters and their mentality. He has questioned the culture of the club and wants to change that during his stay at N17. This has led to fans questioning the Australian gaffer’s right to criticize, believing that his methods might be a tad too harsh for the passionate but sometimes fickle fanbase. 

Unfair expectations? Gareth Bale praises Postecoglou’s Spurs despite fan discontent

As supporters divide themselves into sides, Spurs icon Gareth Bale insists that Ange has become a victim of his own success and acknowledges that the club would be just fine with him at the helm at White Hart Lane. 

The former Real Madrid winger says that Tottenham should stick with Ange Postecoglou, and they could be a real force to reckon with next season, especially if they make a couple of smart additions to their roster. He also spoke about how the Spurs boss deserves praise for the season after losing Harry Kane last summer.

Spurs' bold tactics vs Man City leave pundits and club stunned
Ange has done a wonderful job at Tottenham in the recently concluded season.

The 34-year-old soccer player-cum-golfer, speaking to The Independent about Tottenham, said: “I think they’ve had a very successful season. The biggest problem was that they started so well, and the expectations went too high and too soon. It was a bit unfair. Ange has done an incredible job. Losing Harry (Kane) was going to be a massive loss, no matter how many goals you lose.

“So to be able to finish higher than in previous seasons speaks massive volumes about how well the manager has done. He has also got them playing the Tottenham way.”

“I went back again this season, and it was very enjoyable to watch. Ange is definitely the right man for the job.“ If they can have a great transfer window this summer, which I’m sure they will, they’ll be in a better place next season.”

The club surely has a big summer window just around the corner, and it is important that any incomings through the door raise the ceiling of the squad. However, if Gareth Bale believes that, I am not the one to question the progress that Spurs have enjoyed under Ange.
