Ange: Poch was unbelievable at Spurs - but he won't get guard of honour

Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou has hailed the "unbelievable impact" Mauricio Pochettino had as Spurs boss, but says the Argentine will not get a guard of honour when he returns to north London with Chelsea.

Pochettino will return to Spurs in the rival dugout on Monday  - having spent four successful years at Tottenham between 2015 and 2019, where he took the club to the Champions League final and into several title challenges.

With Postecoglou now the popular manager at Spurs, the Australian says the Pochettino era will "stand in the test of time" and has urged his club's fans to treat the Chelsea manager with respect - despite him now managing Tottenham's big rivals.

"It's undoubted that he had an unbelievable impact on this football club," said Postecoglou of Pochettino. "All of us in our roles, our ultimate goal and ambition is to, whatever doors we go through, have an impact.
