If Ange Postecoglou doesn’t fire Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Giovani Lo Celso, and Oliver Skipp from Tottenham Hotspur, according to Craig Burley, he will receive “the sack.”
This comes after Tottenham was eliminated from the EFL Cup on Tuesday night by Fulham, a Premier League team, following a loss on penalties.
Giovani Lo Celso, Oliver Skipp, and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg all got the start in the middle of the park for Tottenham; just one of them had done so under Ange Postecoglou this year.
According to former Scotland international Burley, who spoke to ESPN, these players need to “get out” because they aren’t talented enough to advance Spurs.
The identical outcome for Spurs despite a different game, day, manager, and team.
The fans of Tottenham have seen it all before, from the unreliable defender Davinson Sanchez to the slow-turning Hojbjerg in the middle, who Manchester United is interested in signing.
“This Tottenham squad isn’t deep enough or good enough,” Burley added. “Look at that midfield,” I said. Lo Celso, Skipp, and Hojbjerg. That will eventually land you in the sack.
“It just proves. Bentacur, who is a good footballer, is obviously going to return if something were to happen to Bissouma and Sarr; at the very least, that is a better caliber of player.
But tonight’s submission definitely isn’t going to do the trick. It will be harder for him if he doesn’t get them out and brings better players in during this transfer window.
Postecoglou would have learned a lot
Since he entered the doors, Postecoglou has been enjoying the garden, but at this point, the door slams into him square in the face.
He would have gained the greatest knowledge about his players and who is capable moving forward here.
On Friday, the summer transfer market for 2023 closes, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if Postecoglou sent several of the players who played at Craven Cottage packing.
