Ange Postecoglou has explained how transfers at Tottenham will work with him and they won’t. “Go out there tomorrow looking for a number nine to replace Harry Kane.”
Spurs kick off a new era on Sunday with a trip to Brentford. When they opened the Premier League season without Harry Kane, who moved to Bayern Munich last Saturday With a £100m deal, which could rise to £120m with add-ons. On the same day, Postecoglou named the new captain in the form of Son Heung-min, with James Maddison and Cristian Romero as vice-captains.
Tottenham must now continue to rebuild their appearance to suit Postecoglou, but dare not suggest that the head coach now has £100m in his pocket in the summer transfer window when everyone will see the club from. north london coming
“Money in my pocket is depleted? I don’t have any money in my pocket. My wife did a great job making sure not to go there. That was harsh for my wife…. She deserves it. To spend. I mean, I’m pitting here!” joked the Australian.
“The market is the market. And it’s always been a market. That doesn’t mean you always have to be at that level, I understand, especially when you look at it this summer. Some trading business is in progress. Quite wild in terms of money in circulation
“But I still think there is value if you get the right players and you don’t always need to spend at the highest level. It’s about finding the right people for your football club. I think Madders is a good example. We don’t have to spend too much. And we have players who I think fit what we want to do perfectly.

“From that point of view There are always top trades. But that doesn’t mean that’s the only way. And it doesn’t mean that’s the most important business you have to do.”
With a swollen team like this Postecoglou believes that the most important thing right now is getting players out of the gates before bringing in more.
“Part of the process is we have a large team now. We can’t bring in players. We had to move some players out. That’s our focus right now,” he said. What we don’t want to do is have everything happen very slowly. This means that we are lacking in every way. It has to work that way. We can’t keep building players. We have a big squad like it is now and we have to keep working.
Postecoglou has already played a big part in his team building at Tottenham and will continue to play a big role in his team building at Tottenham as he knows better than anyone what type of players he can play at Tottenham. suited to his specific style of football.
“I do that wherever I go. I guess because I know how my team is going to play. It made it easier for me to identify the right players. The truth is that there are good football players. There are a lot of them out there, and sometimes the difference between them is very small in terms of what they can bring,” he said.
“But I have to imagine them in my team. Do they have the characteristics I want for them to play the football I want? Because of course the way we build is different from other clubs. and what we ask of the players on the team.”
“So I was really clear when we wanted to bring players in and what we wanted. with the players we brought in That’s what we try to change our approach. The scouting department and related people brought players to the I know it will work with my system.”
With Kane in the Bundesliga and Postecoglou earlier in his press conference asked about giving chairman Daniel Levy a shopping list, the shopping pattern continued when the Spurs head coach was asked. Will he have to shop at designer outlets like Gucci to find the England captain instead or will he have to shop elsewhere?
Postecoglou had previously praised both Richarlison and Son, saying the latter could play as a centre-forward for him. And now he suggests Tottenham may not be looking for a ninth category this summer and instead turn their attention to a move elsewhere.
“I opened a real Pandora’s box here. [with the shopping analogies] Because I have no idea! You say Gucci and I don’t know what you’re talking about. Again, I’ll bring my wife in. She told me things like this only happen once. And usually you get a fake replica if you try to get the original,” he said with a smile about Kane.
“With Harry nothing has changed for us today. It’s not like he’s gone and now we have to find Harry instead. We’ve known about this for a while. But the business we’ve done so far is in Harry’s expectation going.
“So we’re not going out there tomorrow looking for a number nine to replace Harry. That’s not an existing strategy. What we are looking for is making sure we have a stronger team. have a stronger team Play the football we want and continue to develop over time.
“In the next three weeks The priority was to shrink the team. and see where we are and then fill in the gaps we want to fill in.”
This weekend, Postecoglou’s Premier League debut is in the dugout and the only downside to his new job is that he has to forgo an annual tradition with a longtime friend.
“I have a few friends coming to the competition. It’s fair to say that I was overwhelmed by tickets. But it was great because they were on the journey too. We all have those dreams and we all live them together. because for me They are just a part too. Because I wouldn’t be able to sit here without them today,” he said.
“They will all come here. And for the first time in 20 years I have to pull out of the Fantasy Premier League. which I am very sorry and if they try to intervene for information ‘Didn’t get anything from me.
“Now I don’t have to play. Because I’m a manager in the Premier League, so it’s not a dream anymore!
