Chris Sutton says Roy Keane and Gary Neville 'don't understand' Ange Postecoglou

"They haven't looked into Postecoglou deeply enough."

Chris Sutton has claimed that Roy Keane and Gary Neville 'don't understand' new Spurs boss Ange Postecoglou, or just how experienced and good he really is.


The new Tottenham manager came to the club and went about his business rather quietly, not drawing the same attention that his predecessors, Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte brought with them.

Although hugely successful during his time at Celtic, many have a perception that the Scottish League isn't of the highest standard, and therefor dilutes the achievements somewhat.



Speaking on on the Mail Sport podcast It's All Kicking Off, he explains why it shouldn't be that surprising that he's doing such a good job in the Premier League so far.

"He did well with Brisbane in Australia, he went to Yokohama who were struggling in the in the J-League, turned them around into J-League champions.

"He came to Celtic, took over one hell of a mess and turned them around - winning five out of six trophies, two league titles.

"But it wasn't just that, it was about style of play, brand of football and then going to Tottenham, that was the biggest thing for me. He would tick that box majorly.


"It's interesting. Pundits who I respect, Gary Neville, Roy Keane, Glenn Hoddle, have all been slightly critical of him in the way that Tottenham play.'

"What I do think is that they don't understand or haven't looked into Postecoglou deeply enough in his coaching career and the brand of football which he plays, I've spoken to him many times, read a lot of stuff about him."

Spurs beat Man United 2-0 in a thrilling game that really got the fans excited and after beating Bournmouth at the weekend they sit in third place, just two points behind leaders Man City.
