Piers Morgan ‘ashamed’ after Ange Postecoglou confronted Tottenham fan in stadium


Piers Morgan has extended his sympathies to Ange Postecoglou following a heated exchange with a Tottenham Hotspur fan during his side’s loss to Manchester City.

Morgan, alongside numerous Arsenal supporters, was hoping Spurs would snatch a point against Pep Guardiola’s team to boost the Gunners’ chances in the Premier League title race. Despite Tottenham needing a victory to breathe new life into their Champions League qualification hopes, several Spurs fans were seen celebrating Erling Haaland’s brace, knowing it could potentially thwart Arsenal’s title ambitions.

During the game Postecoglou, who made it clear his side were playing to beat the Citizens before the match, was spotted confronting a Tottenham fan situated behind his bench. After seeing the ex-Celtic manager’s angry exchange and how disappointed he was in his post-match press conference, Morgan was sympathetic to the Australian.

“I feel sorry for Ange Postecoglou,” Morgan commented on TalkSPORT. “This guy is Australian. They don’t understand what it’s like to want to lose something.

“They’re in the middle of a massive game, where Tottenham could qualify for the Champions League, which could lead to them getting better players. But no, there was a guy behind him chanting at him to throw the match,” reports the Mirror.

“Eventually, he turned round and had a go at him. How can any Tottenham fan live with themselves seeing that scene go down last night? I’m annoyed but also ashamed more than usual of Tottenham fans.”

Spurs only need to claim a point against Sheffield United to ensure they have a place in the Europa League next season. If Chelsea and Newcastle win their final two matches and Chris Wilder’s already relegated Blades beat them at Bramall Lane, then Spurs will be in danger of dropping down to seventh.

Meanwhile, Arsenal’s title hopes are now in the hands of West Ham. As well as beating Everton on the final day of the season, the north Londoners will need David Moyes’ side to claim at least a point at the Etihad Stadium.

Considering Morgan’s mood after City’s victory over Spurs, he does not have much hope. “It’s a tiny club mentality,” he blasted.
