Ange Postecoglou reminds Yves Bissouma of former Chelsea manager

Yves Bissouma says the energy that Ange Postecoglou transmits reminds him a lot of his former Brighton boss Graham Potter.

Postecoglou has had to deal with a lot of doubters every step of the way through his managerial journey and that was no do different at Spurs, with some people writing off the Australian before he even began.

In fact, #NoToPostecoglou was trending on social media when the 58-year-old was first seriously linked with the Tottenham job, with some supporters questioning his lack of experience at the top level.

However, in a matter of months, the new Spurs head coach has completely transformed the mood around the club, with fans now seemingly in love with him.

The same can be said of the Tottenham players, who appear to be loving life under the former Celtic boss, who has given them the freedom to express themselves.

Ange Postecoglou reminds Bissouma of Potter

Perhaps the player to have improved the most since Postecoglou’s arrival is Bissouma, and the Mali international has now remarked that the energy that the Australian brings is inspiring.

He told Colinterview about the Tottenham boss: “I was going to say. He has this determination about him. He has this crazy energy, and it’s this energy that he transmits to the team.

“He has crazy energy. This coach is something crazy. He reminds a little of Graham [Potter]. He has this crazy energy, it’s incredible.”
