Ange Postecoglou has made a popular decision by banning a disliked tactic from the Antonio Conte era during his tenure at Tottenham, relays the GlasgowTimes. The Australian manager was recently appointed as the permanent successor to the Italian at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Conte’s time in charge was met with mixed reactions, and his strategies failed to gain momentum. Ryan Mason temporarily took charge until the end of the season and remains part of the backroom team. However, Postecoglou, the former Celtic boss, is now leading the club and has wasted no time in making his mark.
In addition to personally contacting players before meeting them, Postecoglou has eliminated Conte’s controversial practice of disregarding schedules and setting training times for the following day. This decision has been well received by the players as they prepare for the upcoming Premier League season in August.
Postecoglou has also been active in the transfer market, making moves to shape the squad according to his vision. The signings of Guglielmo Vicario and James Maddison have already been completed, and there are rumors of a potential move for Shakhtar’s Manor Solomon. Postecoglou’s wishlist also includes defenders Micky van de Ven from Wolfsburg and Edmond Tapsoba from Leverkusen.
However, the future of Harry Kane remains a prominent topic. Bayern Munich is reportedly interested in signing the England captain and may make another bid. While the Bundesliga side is eager to secure the services of the world-class striker, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is understandably reluctant to let him go. With only one year left on his contract, Spurs are also wary of losing Kane for free next summer. The club is said to be seeking a transfer fee of over £100 million, but it is believed that a bid exceeding £80 million could potentially lead to a deal being reached.
