Graham Arnold, the manager of the Australian national team, claimed that he had the chance to see Ange Postecoglou’s training sessions at Tottenham, acknowledging that the Spurs head coach operates differently from most managers.
There has been plenty said and written about the distinctions between Postecoglou and Antonio Conte, highlighting how the two are quite different individuals with very different approaches to football.
They operate differently on the practice field as well; the players frequently discuss how difficult training under the Italian was.
In reality, players like Son Heung-min and Harry Kane were present.
Postecoglou does things differently at Tottenham
Arnold has now provided us with insight into how Postecoglou’s workouts are significantly different, with the Spurs players being subjected to quick, sharp ball sessions.
“I went to watch Tottenham train, and Ange is still coaching,” he said to The Athletic. I had a good time laughing and watching with him all day.
“I observed them train, and I could see the players’ enthusiasm; they were all on tiptoes. According to what I’ve heard, many managers have slow two-hour sessions; nevertheless, Ange holds quick sessions.
It is not unexpected that the Spurs players are absolutely loving life under Ange and his coaching team given that they have the opportunity to express themselves after having to work on repetitious drills under Mourinho and Conte, with a lot of emphasis on off-the-ball work and positioning.
