In his inaugural press conference as the manager of Tottenham, Ange Postecoglou delivered a clear message to both the club’s supporters and star player Harry Kane. He emphasized his commitment to his coaching style and stated that he will not tolerate any player who does not fully buy into his methods. Postecoglou, who has achieved success at every coaching position he has held, including leading Celtic to five trophies in two seasons, made it clear that he would lead the club his way, regardless of whether Kane is on board or not.
While Tottenham is determined to hold onto their captain and has no intention of entertaining any transfer offers, other top clubs in Europe, such as Bayern Munich and Manchester United, have expressed interest in acquiring Kane. However, Postecoglou expressed his desire to involve Kane in the club’s success and stated that his conversation with the player will focus on their shared goals for Tottenham. He also acknowledged that the conversation may not have the defining impact that many anticipate.
Postecoglou’s arrival has already made an impact, with reports suggesting that Tottenham officials may consider sending Kane abroad rather than risk facing him in English competition. Postecoglou confirmed that the club would be active in the transfer market and expected some player movement before the start of the season. He viewed the upcoming preseason friendly against West Ham as an opportunity to make an impression on the team and evaluate the players.
While Postecoglou acknowledged that there may be some resistance to his coaching and playing style, he assured fans that he would not allow the team to be derailed by dissenting voices. He emphasized the importance of having everyone on board and committed to the vision for the club in order to achieve their goals efficiently. Postecoglou acknowledged that there might be temporary setbacks, but he would not let it hinder their progress.
As for Tottenham’s bargaining position regarding Kane, the club is in a weaker position now as they risk losing him for nothing at the end of the season. However, it is unlikely that Tottenham and Postecoglou will allow that to happen without receiving assurances from Kane about his commitment to the club. Kane will have the opportunity to choose from Europe’s top clubs in a year’s time, and if he remains in England, he could potentially surpass Alan Shearer’s all-time record of 260 Premier League goals.
In an ideal scenario for Tottenham fans, the meeting with Postecoglou will convince Kane that he can achieve his ambitions of winning silverware with the club despite the managerial changes and recent failure to qualify for the Champions League. Postecoglou expressed his love for challenges and the opportunity to create something special for the club.
Overall, Postecoglou’s press conference showcased his determination to lead Tottenham in his own way and his commitment to the club’s success with or without Harry Kane. He emphasized the importance of everyone buying into his vision and expressed his excitement for the challenges ahead.
