Ange Postecoglou makes Premier League history with back-to-back awards

Ange Postecoglou has made history by becoming the first manager ever to be named Premier League Manager of the Month in each of his first two months in the competition.

The Aussie boss added the September gong to the one he claimed in August as his incredible start to life with Tottenham Hotspur saw him beat out the likes of Mikel Arteta, Unai Emergy, Eddie Howe and Jurgen Klopp after a public vote was combined with those from a panel of experts.

Postecoglou remains unbeaten in England’s top-flight, winning three and drawing one of Spurs’ four matches last month to sit top of the ladder at the international break.

The last manager to win the first two awards of any season was Jurgen Klopp in 2019-20, with his Liverpool side going on to lift the trophy.

This accolade is another feather in the cap of the A-Leagues great, who has taken to the Premier League instantly despite taking over a Tottenham side who finished eight last term and have since lost their talisman Harry Kane.

Postecoglou’s men led the way with 20 points from their opening eight matches, ahead of north London rivals Arsenal on goal difference as the league takes a breath.

Spurs resume their campaign on October 28 with a clash against Crystal Palace before hosting Chelsea on November 7.
