Tottenham Hotspur’s senior assistant coach, Chris Davies, has been discussing what he and his fellow coaches are working towards at Spurs, and has commended the positive relationship he shares with Ange Postecoglou.

After a dismal campaign in the 2022/23 season and the negativity around the club, it was imperative that the next Tottenham manager would come in and heal the various wounds among the squad and the supporters.

Ange Postecoglou was elected as the man to lead Spurs into a new era and a little over a month into his tenure, the atmosphere around the club is overwhelmingly positive.

The Australian has already improved the squad he inherited with the acquisitions of Guglielmo Vicario, James Maddison, and Manor Solomon.

A commitment to an attacking, front-foot style of play has many fans excited about the season ahead, which promises to be a sharp contrast to the more defensive approach last term.

Ange Postecoglou knows what he wants

Expectations in North London may be growing, but there is still plenty of work to be done, according to Postecoglou’s assistant, Chris Davies. Thankfully, the early stages of his time at Spurs have been ‘positive’ due to the nature of Postecoglou’s leadership.

Davies told SPURSPLAY: “We have to get the squad as fit as possible, that’s the whole objective and that’s the top of the mountain which we are climbing towards.

“I’ve set the plan to work with the other coaches and we will deliver the best sessions we can for the players to try to align with our way.

“Ange is a guy who is very clear. He is a man of integrity, an honest man, someone who I would class as a stable character, someone who is clear on what he wants and there is no fluff, there is no nonsense.

“He is obviously going to set the framework and he wants me to go and lead and be myself and help him create success here. The first few weeks have been very positive.”

Spurs Web Opinion

By all accounts, it sounds like Ange Postecoglou is exactly the kind of manager we needed.

He’s clearly a nice guy who has endeared himself to those around him very quickly, but gives the impression that he won’t stand for any egos or anyone who doesn’t adhere to his expectations and standards.
