Tottenham’s Postecoglou not bothered by ‘Spursy’ tag after winless run


Tottenham Hotspur’s faltering form has invited the “Spursy” tag from critics who see it as typical of the club, but manager Ange Postecoglou says he wants to focus on the work at hand instead of labels.

The club briefly led the Premier League table, winning eight of their first 10 matches, but dropped to fifth after a five-game winless streak.

“What I need to know is that this club hasn’t won anything for 15 years. That’s all I need to know,” Postecoglou told reporters on Friday. “That’s the reality. There’s no going away from that.

“Like most organisations you’ve got to learn from the mistakes of the past, you’ve got to come up with a plan,” Postecoglou said. “Whatever tags other people want to put on it, that can’t be your motivation.

“If you want to bring success, you’ve got to have a clear idea of how you’re going to go about it and stick to the process.”
