Tottenham Hotspur manager Ange Postecoglou claimed he "couldn't care less" about climbing to fourth in the Premier League on Sunday, suggesting other factors about the team are more important. 

Tottenham moved into fourth with their 3-1 win against Nottingham Forest on Sunday, jumping ahead of Aston Villa on goal difference and 11 points clear of Manchester United in sixth. But, when asked about leapfrogging Aston Villa in the table and now being in control of the race for fourth, Postecoglou responded somewhat surprisingly.
