Tottenham will be fighting for the Premier League next season - after all, that's why Ange Postecoglou joined the club.

The former Celtic manager became Spurs No.1 last summer after guiding the Hoops to the treble.

The Australian's turnaround in Glasgow led to him being headhunted by the North London side, and he's enjoyed a successful debut campaign in England's top flight.

They're very much in the mix to finish in the top four, which would secure Champions League football for next season.

His attractive brand of football has been praised by fans and pundits too, all while losing star player Harry Kane last summer.

Ange hasn't managed to lift any silverware this term, however, he insists his time will be there or thereabouts for the league title in the 2024/25 season, as that's his burning ambition at any team he manages.

Asked whether he expects his side to be challenging next season, he responded: "I hope so. Or why am I doing what I'm doing? That's why I came to the club.

"As somebody said to me last week, 'Just do your job Ange' and my job is to come here and try to bring success. And if you don't think you're going to be in the title race in 12 months' time, then I don't know why I'm here."

He added: "It'd probably make my life easier if I said, 'Let's make Champions League, that's great' because everyone thinks I've done a great job.

"But from my perspective, I keep saying it, I look at the teams who made the Champions League this year from last year and that wasn't the catalyst for them kicking on.

"It's not their fault - it's more demanding. But I'm not going to let this club rest on where we finish this year. Where we finish should be a foundation for us being better next year."
