Postecoglou Excited About Euro 2024 as ITV Pundit

Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou has revealed one thing that he has ‘loved’ about the European Championship so far. 

Euro 2024 is well underway way, with the third and final group stage matches set to get underway from Sunday. 

There have been plenty of long-range strikes, own-goals, controversies and just the one goalless match. 

Postecoglou has been in Germany as a fan but joined ITV ahead of Belgium’s clash with Romania to make his punditry debut this summer. 

The 58-year-old pointed out one ‘exciting’ aspect of the tournament he has enjoyed so far.

‘I just love the fearlessness of throwing young players in, they’ve already made an impact,’ Postecoglou said.

‘We sometimes, even us managers, kind of want to wrap them in cotton wool. But 21-year-olds, 16-year-olds making an impact straight away, I think that’s so exciting.’

The 16-year-old in question is Spain’s wonderkid Lamine Yamal, who made history last week. 

After starting against Croatia, the Barcelona winger became the youngest player in history to feature at the European Championships. 

Yamal went on to impress as Luis Enrique’s men claimed a thuming 3-0 victory in their opening match. 

Yamal then started the second group match against Italy and was once again of the brightest players on the pitch as Spain won 1-0. 

He was recently pictured doing his homework after revealing at the start of the tournament his only focus would not be on football.

‘I brought my homework here because I’m in the 4th year of ESO,’ Yamal said.

‘I have online classes too and those are going fine. I hope the teacher doesn’t get mad at me.’

The ESO refers to the third stage of the Spanish education system, with this compulsory for students between the ages of 12 and 16.
