Jun 29, 2003
Ange Postecoglou has talked of his joy in meeting Owen Bright and a number of other Tottenham fans amid the club’s support for Down Syndrome Awareness Week.

A group of young people with Down Syndrome were invited to the club’s training ground along with their families to watch Spurs players take part in a training session on Wednesday.

Asked on Friday if providing joy to fans was one of the best parts of his job, Postecoglou replied: “Yes it is, but it is also reciprocal.

“I get a lot of joy out of it too, mate.

“It is not every day you walk out to training and someone runs up to give you a hug. It’s not the usual greeting I get!

“And it wasn’t just Owen. There were quite a few of his friends there and I walked out and saw a bunch of Spurs supporters buzzing. There is no better feeling.

“As much as we understand particularly the players, they are their heroes and the joy they give them, we get equal joy out of it because it’s such a fantastic feeling to see people who are passionate about their football club and how much joy it gives them.
