Alasdair Gold claims the Spurs squad have been blown away by Chris Davies

Alasdair Gold has revealed that the Tottenham players are loving the training sessions that Ange Postecoglou and his coaching staff are putting together, with many impressed with Chris Davies, in particular.

Unlike other managers, who tend to take their staff along with them to various clubs, Postecoglou has often worked with a brand-new coaching staff at each of his clubs.

The Australian has followed his modus operandi at Spurs as well, with Davies taking over as the senior assistant coach while Ryan Mason, Matt Wells and Mile Jedinak have joined as his assistants.

It has been explained by various outlets over the past couple of months that Postecoglou first has a meeting with his staff prior to training and impresses upon them with clarity what he wants out of sessions, before allowing his assistants to run them (The Athletic).

Gold has now revealed that the Tottenham squad and others around the club have been extremely impressed with the training sessions so far, with the journalist revealing that Davies, in particular, has made a fantastic impression at Hotspur Way.

He said on his YouTube channel: “The training sessions, they are wowed by them, the players.

“I don’t know how he does it, one of his biggest masterstrokes has to be being able to assemble a coaching staff from scratch, transfer his entire ideas and philosophy to them, and getting them creating these amazing sessions.

“Because, honestly, I’ve heard from people in and around the club, people in and around the players, everyone, just how much these training sessions are fantastic right now. We know football, we know at some stage that disillusioned players will always turn and criticise training sessions at some point.

“But, right now, they’re loving it. There’s a lot of praise coming Chris Davies’ way, the senior assistant head coach, he’s obviously doing a lot of running of the sessions and a lot of planning of things and running it by Postecoglou.”

One of the biggest complaints the players had with Conte’s regime was the repetitive nature of his training sessions. So, it is not surprising that the players are now enjoying training sessions under Postecoglou, particularly since most of them are likely to involve on-the-ball work.
