Tottenham Hotspur manager Ange Postecoglou has won the Barclays Manager of the Month award for September 2023.
Postecoglou pipped Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta, Aston Villa’s Unai Emery, Newcastle United’s Eddie Howe and Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp to claim the award.
This prestigious accolade is a testament to his remarkable impact since taking the reins at the club this summer.
The 58-year-old has orchestrated an inspired transformation in Tottenham’s style of play, leaving fans and pundits alike in awe.
The team has become a formidable force, sitting at the top of the Premier League table with an unblemished record of 20 points from their first eight games.
Tottenham defeated Burnley and Sheffield United before a riveting derby against Arsenal ended in a captivating draw. They ended September with a controversial victory over Liverpool.
Postecoglou clinched his first Manager of the Month award in England the previous month and has now secured back-to-back honours – a testament to his remarkable impact in the Premier League.
The former Celtic manager became only the second Australian ever to clinch a monthly award in the Premier League.
The only other Australian to achieve the feat was Mark Schwarzer, who earned the Player of the Month award with Fulham in February 2010.
The transformation under Postecoglou is nothing short of astonishing, with Spurs appearing as an entirely different entity compared to the struggling side that toiled under multiple managers last season.
The Australian’s arrival has breathed new life into the club, igniting the hopes of their fanbase after losing all-time top goalscorer Harry Kane.
When Tottenham return from the international break, they will hope to continue their impressive form with a win over Fulham on October 23 before a trip to face Crystal Palace.
