Spurs supremo claims DNA has returned; club looks completely different to a year ago

Scott Munn believes that Tottenham Hotspur have finally returned to their DNA of playing attacking football this season.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy admitted to supporters in a letter back in May 2022 that the club “lost sight of their DNA” and promed that their next head coach would deliver “free-flowing, attacking and entertaining” football, as well as promoting young players.

The reality couldn’t have been any different with Antonio Conte‘s appointment bringing a drab, counter-attacking style while completely overlooking the academy to promote talent from within.

Scott Munn believes Tottenham’s DNA has returned

It took Levy over two years to deliver on the promise with the arrival of Ange Postecoglou, with the Australian’s high-pressing, risk-taking style of play providing supporters at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium a sense of entertainment once again.

Munn, who finally took up his role as Tottenham’s chief football officer in September following a delay believes that the club looks completely different to what it did a year ago.

In an interview with Optus Sport, he said: “I think the club today off the pitch, compared to where the club was 12 months ago, it’s vastly different, but I would say this is a huge club, it’s been around for over 100 years with an incredible history in north London. To be given the privilege to help drive that and work with the chairman and the rest of the board and make change has been fantastic, and we’re seeing that. The women’s team last weekend winning, beating Manchester City to go through to the FA Cup semi-final, which will be fantastic, but also the men’s team are doing incredibly well this year.

“I think we’re playing a wonderful brand of football. It’s attractive, it’s back to the what the DNA of Spurs was about and we just need to continue to improve and challenge ourselves and we’ll have another window in the summer and I think we want to position ourselves as best we can for the start of the next Premier League season.”

While the football is attractive under Postecoglou, Munn and the board must continue to back the Tottenham head coach with his demands in the summer transfer window.

If the club have ambition, they must continue to bring in talent like they did in the summer with Guglielmo Vicario and Micky van de Ven, but must also spend on a couple of game-changing players to vastly improve the starting eleven.
