4. Postecoglou still has a lot to prove
In one of the sharpest U-turns you’ll ever see, Tottenham has gone from a strategy of hiring the world’s most decorated, star-studded managers to pursue a comparative unknown.
While that sounds ominous, it certainly isn’t.
For all their trophies and swollen egos, Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte didn’t win anything at Spurs. I won’t go into why, but the bottom line is that Tottenham is worse off than before those two headlining names moseyed in.
Even at the over-ripened age of 57, Postecoglou is still building his reputation, desirous of making a name for himself, ensuring it is elevated into the rarified air of our previous managers.
While he’s got one hell of an arduous hike ahead, Postecoglou will fight for everything, knowing his next job could make or break him.
That’s not, however, to say he lacks confidence. Self-aware and humble, he still finds a way to carry himself with the confidence required to run a Premier League with Tottenham’s stature.
