In a recent interview, Postecoglou talked about his role in the club and he stressed on the syle of play. He said, “I love to win, mate, that’s the main thing. I have done that wherever I have been. So, football is designed to bring success. Alongside that, it’s really important to me that there is an element of something most fans and most players want to be associated with. It’s football that is exciting, that people talk about.”

The Australian manager continued, “It’s not just the end result but the manner in which you play your football and that is really important to me because I think it’s a way of being successful. And secondly, it allows people to grab onto those things that are most special about our game. It’s what I try to provide. You never get it right in all aspects but the basis of it will be we want to be a team that wins things but ultimately also entertain the fans. We’ve got six weeks to prepare these guys so come the first weekend of Premier League football, we’re ready to go.”

Tottenham has had a wide variety of managers in recent times including the pragmatism of Conte and Jose Mourinho which clashed directly with the free-flowing style of Mauricio Pochettino. The appointment of the Aussie looks like a move back to the attacking brand of football that helped them reach the Champions League finals in 2019. Ange Postecoglou was previously the manager of the SPFL side Celtic. There he managed the team for 113 games in three seasons. During this stint, he managed to win five trophies.
