Tottenham boss Ange Postecoglou is plotting to disappoint King Charles by condemning his favourite team to relegation just days after mingling with the Royal Family at Buckingham Palace.

Postecoglou, the club's chief football officer Scott Munn and Charli Grant of Spurs women's team were among prominent UK-based Australians invited by the Australian Government to attend a garden party at the palace on Wednesday.

'It was nice, a different experience,' said Postecoglou, although he did not realise the King was a follower of Burnley, who at are Tottenham on Saturday and will be relegated from the Premier League if they fail to win.

'That's probably why they kept him away from me,' quipped the former Celtic boss. 'I'd be happy to disappoint him on that front. No problem. I didn't get with 10 feet of the King and if I'd got closer, I probably would have asked him about the Parthenon marbles and I would probably have got thrown out.

'It was nice for me and my wife. These are experiences you are just fortunate because of the position I hold, not necessarily who I am. Just really inspiring because the people we met there work for charities, great causes, military people, people who are real heroes for society.

'They know who I am and come up and say hello, but just asking them about who they are and their life, you see so many fantastic people who do so much in communities, often without a lot of heralding from the wider public acknowledgement.

'I could see how happy they were to be there because finally there was some acknowledgement for them. Bizarrely enough, the sun was shining in London so we had a really nice afternoon.'

Tottenham go into the Burnley game on the back of four defeats and determined to give their fans something to cheer at the end of the season.

'Our supporters have been unbelievable this year for us,' said Postecoglou. 'They've stuck with us and been a real source of encouragement for the players, home and away. Their experiences have been up and down obviously but they haven't waivered in support.

'It is an opportunity these last two home games, Saturday and Tuesday, for us to hopefully send them off into the summer with not what we wanted to achieve this year, but with the hope that come next year they will be ready to get behind us again.'
