When asked about the appointment of the former Celtic boss, Levy explained that he wanted to get back to Tottenham’s roots of playing entertaining and attacking football.

The Spurs chairman also wanted to put his faith in someone who understood how important the link between the academy and the first team was.

Levy wants return to attacking football at Spurs

He said: “We made a conscious decision that we wanted a coach who would understand what we really wanted as a Club, which was to play attacking football, to enable everyone to enjoy coming to a match and be entertained, and also someone who understood the importance of the Academy.”

Postecoglou was famed for his attacking football at Celtic, deploying a 4-3-3 system where the full-backs tuck into midfield in attack, leaving just two defenders at the back.

Spurs Web Opinion:

Attacking football is what we all want. Yes, a trophy would be amazing, but for now, I just want my sanity back. I want to enjoy watching Spurs every weekend again. Give me some 5-4 wins over 1-0 snoozefests.
