Ange Postecoglou says Spurs have built a ‘strong foundation’ to build on after an unbeaten start to the Premier League season.
Spurs are top of the Premier League table as the season resumes from the international break, ahead of Monday night’s fixture with Fulham.
Postecoglou’s immediate impact has seen the former Celtic boss win back-to-back Premier League Manager of the Month awards and the Australian said he has been pleased with his side’s ‘encouraging’ start.
“Wherever we are is where we are. We have had a real encouraging start to the season,” Postecoglou said at his pre-match press conference.
“The Premier League Manager of the Month Award is a larger group of people creating an environment for the players to perform.
“We’ve had a level of performance in every game. We’ve had some eventful games but again that’s given us a strong foundation in terms of resilience and character.”
Postecoglou said the impressive start to the campaign does not change his ‘thinking’ on the club’s trajectory and insists Spurs remain ‘in the beginning’ of his project.
“It doesn’t change the way I’m thinking. It pains to say we’re very much still in the beginning. My thought is continual development. Everything is in the early stages. Whatever start we have had doesn’t change that it’s the early stages. If you get side-tracked and move away from the plans, you’re going to stumble.
“My thinking is how we present ourselves and how we perform. I think there’s, at the moment, a curiosity around us and around me. There’s nothing beyond that to show you what trajectory we’re on.”
