The Australian manager is set to bring his Spurs team to Edinburgh for a pre-season friendly against Hearts.

Speculation about Tottenham facing a Scottish club during their summer preparations had been circulating but now an official announcement has been made. The friendly match is scheduled for 7 pm on July 17, marking a significant occasion as it coincides with Hearts’ 150th anniversary celebrations.

The match will see Postecoglou back in the dugout at Tynecastle, a stadium where he enjoyed considerable success during his tenure at Celtic. Throughout his two-year stint with the Hoops, Postecoglou’s team clashed with Hearts 10 times, securing victories in nine of those encounters.

Details regarding tickets and broadcast options for this glamour friendly will be made available as the match date approaches.

I’m sure it won’t just be Hearts and Spurs fans who will be keen to attend the match.
