Tottenham Hotspur manager Ange Postecoglou gives his verdict on his club’s previous transfer allegations of serious breaches.

Postecoglou made it very clear that the transfer allegations regarding Jermaine Defoe’s move from Spurs to Portsmouth in 2008. The FA confirmed this week they’ll look into the transfer following an investigation from The Times.

Postecoglou reveals “he’ll keep his mouth shut” on these transfer allegations

Speaking ahead of Sunday’s Aston Villa clash, Ange Postecoglou reveals that his focus is completely on weekend’s clash. He said :-

“And? In 2008? I think I was maybe coaching Brisbane Roar mate, so fair to say I wasn’t around then.

“And really, if you think that’s coming across my desk… people are keeping a fair bit away from me at the moment because of what’s really important and that is we’ve got a big game on Sunday, with the issues we’ve got around the team tomorrow, that’s where my focus is.

“And I think I’ve answered it. It’s not across my desk mate. For me to give you an answer would mean me sitting down with whoever is doing the investigation, whoever has all the information here, you know how many hours?

“I don’t know if you’ve spent any hours doing that but I don’t have that time in my day to be assessing those kinds of issues. With those kinds of things, any of those issues, there are those responsible. Maybe I’m the spokesman, but I’m the spokesman for the football club in terms of the football. I would hate it absolutely if you got a lawyer out here and he started talking about what sort of formation we should play at the weekend.

“I’ll keep my mouth shut with those things, not for any other reason. But I respect the space that other people are in and that I’m in. if you’ve got real questions about that, there are probably better people to ask than me.”
