‘Start of this journey’ – Spurs coach Mile Jedinak talks long-term plans with Postecoglou

Tottenham’s assistant coach Mile Jedinak has revealed that despite the heavy defeat at the hands of Fulham, Spurs will not change their approach as they believe that their current style will get them to where they want to be.

For the first time under Ange Postecoglou, Tottenham failed to score in a Premier League game on Saturday, with Fulham running riot and putting three past the away side.

The result served as a reality check for the Lilywhites on the back of their thumping 4-0 win over Aston Villa a week earlier and showed that the North London club still have plenty of work to do if they are to close the gap with the best sides in the division.

Mile Jedinak says Spurs will stick to their guns

While some fans might expect the coaching staff to conduct an inquest following the defeat, Jedinak insisted that they have complete faith in the process.

The Australian told ESPN: “No one wants to lose football games. But we’ve got 10 games to go, and you know we’ll be doing everything we can to make sure we finish the season strong.

“From our perspective, it’s been the same process from the start. We’ve just tried to stick to our processes week-in and week-out and continue on that path, and where that path will get us at the end remains to be seen.”

Jedinak praised the efforts that the Spurs players have put in right from the start of the season and pointed out that the club is still only at the start of their new journey.

The 39-year-old added: “When we did come in, we worked with the boys all the time. To see them grasp the concepts on how we wanted the team to play; they’ve given us every single amount of effort and energy — [so have] the coaches and the staff — and it’s not been a coincidence [Postecoglou’s system was implemented quickly].

“It’s nice. You see that process evolving and you see the team evolving and that’s something that I know gets us excited as coaches. We’re only at the start of this journey and you know, we’ll keep pushing to keep improving day by day.”

Spurs Web Opinion

While there is no doubt that Postecoglou will not change his aggressive and attacking approach, the Australian and his staff would perhaps need to make some tweaks to the system in order to ensure they are not exposed in the same manner they were by Fulham.
