Tour 2016 - Mauricio's thanks to Aussie fans
01 August 2016|Tottenham Hotspur
Mauricio Pochettino thanked fans in Melbourne as the touring squad flew back from Australia.
Just like Sydney last May, our Aussie supporters were everywhere with our official supporters club OzSpurs putting together a host of events across the week.
OzSpurs have chapters across Australia taking in the likes of Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney - and all chapters were present for the supporters' night with Ledley King on Thursday.
Over 73,000 fans attended our ICC matches against Juventus and Atletico Madrid.
“Our fans were fantastic, it must have been 80 per cent Spurs fans against Juventus and the same against Atletico Madrid,” said Mauricio. “It's amazing because we are very far from London and our supporters’ passion for the club is great and their welcome was brilliant, just like Sydney last year and now Melbourne.”
Harry Winks performed well in both matches and was out and about at events in the city. “I loved the week,” he said. “It was the same in Sydney last year.
“This year we’ve played against top quality opposition, Champions League finalists, top, top players. For me it was a great experience. The fans are brilliant and some travelled all the way out from England as well, that’s different class. We’ve top fans and all the lads appreciate their support.”
