We are now three months into Ange Postecoglou’s reign as Tottenham Hotspur boss, and Dejan Kulusevski is delighted with the way things are going at the club.

After the high-profile appointments of both Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte failed to bring success to Tottenham, Ange Postecoglou has so far offered an interesting change of pace.

Some eyebrows were raised when Postecoglou, a manager who has never tested himself in Europe’s big leagues, was brought in to fix the mess at Spurs.

However, the Australian has totally transformed the club very quickly, both on and off the pitch. Conservative and frustrating football has been replaced by expansive, attacking play, and now spirits among the players and fans appear to be at an all-time high.

Dejan Kulusevski, for one, has previously spoken about how ‘fantastic’ his new manager is and how much ‘fun’ it is to be at the club right now (TNT Sports 26/08/23 at 15:45).

Kulusevski praises Ange Postecoglou again

Now, the Swede has even more positive things to say about the current situation at Tottenham.

“I’m glad it’s going well. The team is good. We’ve got a really good coach and we’ve played well and scored a lot of goals,” he said in an interview with Fotbollskanalen. “So, it’s clear that it’s great fun. You should enjoy it when things are going well.”

It has been a quick change in fortunes for the Lilywhites, as Kulusevski added: “We had a tough time at the end of last season. [Ange] has come in with really positive energy and it has gone very quickly. Of course, we are all a little surprised. But he’s really good.

“We are a young team and everyone wants to play this way. I’m not saying that what we did before was completely wrong, but it was something completely different. 

“I think it’s easier to come to training every day and know that you should play with the ball, that you should attack and run forward and not backwards. So, it is clear that all of us players have done everything possible to listen as much as possible.”

It’s almost frightening how quickly things have moved in the right direction under Ange Postecoglou and I just hope it isn’t a flash in the pan, but a more permanent and meaningful shift towards successful times for the club.
