Ange Postecoglou, the manager of Tottenham, reacted angrily to his team’s Thursday night failure to accept responsibility and play well against Chelsea.

During Tottenham’s devastating loss to Chelsea, Ange Postecoglou lost it and yelled at his players to be brave.

Spurs’ hopes of qualifying for the Champions League were severely damaged on Thursday night when they were defeated 2-0 by their rivals in London. Conor Gallagher’s free kick was headed in by Trevoh Chalobah to give the Blues the lead, and Nicolas Jackson added a second with a rebound after Cole Palmer hit the crossbar.

After losing 3-2 to Arsenal in the north London derby, Tottenham suffered its second defeat in five days against rivals. They are now seven points behind Aston Villa in fifth place, and even though they still have a game in hand, fourth place seems far away at this point.

Spurs didn’t produce much against Chelsea, and Postecoglou was not happy with their performance. With the score at 1-0 in the 32nd minute, he was seen by the TV cameras yelling at his players from the sidelines.

He yelled, directing his furious commands at Pape Sarr and Cristian Romero: “Pape, stop passing it f***ing backwards! Forward it to others! You distribute it to others. Gary Neville said of the outburst in the Sky Sports commentary, “He’s having a right go at Sarr and Romero.” He lost it!

“Angry, Ange! Honestly, at halftime, Karen Carney remarked, “I’ve never seen him so animated and angry.” “It’s really about [Brennan] Johnson and Son [Heung-min], they missed the ball, lost possession, and gave away this free-kick that led to the goal. They kept getting into midfield and giving it away.”

After failing to receive the response he was hoping for, Postecoglou made the necessary adjustments in the sixty-third minute, substituting Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, James Maddison, and Rodrigo Bentancur for Sarr, Yves Bissouma, and Richarlison. However, Jackson added the game-winning second goal for Chelsea, meaning the triple change did not have the desired impact.

In his post-match interview, Postecoglou was still very much in the game. He said, “I have to take responsibility for that; it is on me. It wasn’t good enough.” “I am the manager and the one who promoted them, and it was insufficient. Our performance in the first half indicated that my message wasn’t being understood.”

“Come on mate, we didn’t play well. Do you want me to write you a dossier of where it went wrong?” he said in response to a question about the message he was trying to convey to his players. We seem to have lost some of our faith and conviction in our football, and it is my responsibility to make that right.

It was our style of play, and we were far from adequate, that mattered, not that we gave up the [first] goal. I’m responsible for that. For a while now, we’ve been somewhat of a grind, but that’s part of the challenge and part of our development. We have to put on a show, and sometimes that means working hard. We didn’t have much today.”
