Postecoglou says ‘tough decisions’ made in Spurs rebuild

Ange Postecoglou has said Spurs have ‘already made tough decisions’ in regards to their rebuild of the squad this summer.

Spurs have shown encouraging signs during Postecoglou’s first season in charge and the next stage of the club’s development will take shape in the summer transfer window.

The north Londoners want to sign a central midfielder with Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher and Everton’s Amadou Onana targets according to the Telegraph, while there’s interest in Fulham centre-back Tosin Adarabioyo and Bournemouth defender Lloyd Kelly.


Elsewhere, Spurs want to sign a winger and centre-forward, and will listen to offers to Richarlison to bring in funds. The likes of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Emerson Royal are also available for sale and Postecoglou said tough decisions have had to be made as he looks to build a squad that can thrive in his style.

“We’ve already made tough decisions, we let some experienced players leave the club at the beginning of the year, some by choice. But again, I feel like if we’re really going to change, that means change. You have to make decisions,” the Australian said at his pre-match press conference ahead of facing Liverpool this weekend.

“Some of those decisions aren’t that tough because whether it’s a player or a staff member, they realise it themselves and say, ‘You know what, I’ve got a better path somewhere else and you’ve got a better path here.’ So they’re not that tough, but some of them you have to make just because of change, not necessarily because they don’t fit in the picture but you still have to change.


“I’ve got to change this squad, I have to. Because I’ve got to build a squad I think can play our football. For that to happen, there has to be exits. I can’t just keep everyone here and keep bringing in players. So sometimes you let people go who you think ‘he’s a good player’ but how am I going to change if I don’t do that.”
