According to Sky Sports analyst Michael Dawson, Brennan Johnson might start up front for Ange Postecoglou’s Tottenham Hotspur.
Brennan Johnson made the right choice when he switched from the Reds to Spurs, according to the former Tottenham Hotspur and Nottingham Forest player, who spoke on Sky Sports News at 12:14 p.m. on September 2, 2023.
Johnson was acquired by Tottenham during the summer transfer window from Forest, a Premier League foe.
The 22-year-old Wales international attacker can play anywhere along the front line, according to Dawson.
Brennan Johnson tipped to play as a striker for Tottenham Hotspur
As the number 9, Johnson might play up front, according to the Sky Sports analyst.
Johnson was asked by Dawson where he plays. Kulusevski is there, Sonny is to the left, and Richarlison is also there.
Will he enter as the number 9? He is able to play on all three front lines.
He moves like lightning. He makes a nice move when he runs at you from behind with his balls in.
It will be intriguing to see if Brennan Johnson starts at position nine for Tottenham Hotspur head coach Ange Postecoglou.
Although Son Heung-min scored a hat-trick this past weekend, Richarlison is not having the best of times at Tottenham and Son Heung-min may not always be used in the middle of the field.
Johnson is a very adaptable forward who can operate either as the center of the front line or out wide.
The 22-year-old has so far appeared in 72 games in the Premier League.
In those contests, the forward contributed 11 assists in addition to four goals scored.
This season, Tottenham wants to place among the top four teams in the Premier League standings.
Postecoglou has asked two more Spurs players to join leadership group – Journalist reports
Football.Guglielmo Vicario has been included in the new leadership team at Tottenham, according to London’s Alasdair Gold.
With Harry Kane departing the team, Hugo Lloris and Eric Dier seemingly not being in Postecoglou’s plans, and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg being relegated to a supporting position, the old leadership group at Spurs has been utterly dismantled.
While Postecoglou’s choice to give Son Heung-min the captaincy was not unexpected, he seemed to be making a statement by designating Cristian Romero and recent addition James Maddison as the South Korean’s assistants.
On Saturday at Turf Moor, all three players took the initiative and scored goals as their team won 5-2.
Spurs give Bissouma and Vicario managerial positions
Postecoglou has reportedly asked Vicario and Yves Bissouma to “lead the rest of the younger bunch by examples and words,” according to Gold.
The 58-year-old manager of Tottenham has developed a bond with the older players mentioned above since they have all accepted his techniques, according to the writer, which wasn’t always the case with his players at his former teams.
Vicario strikes one as a naturally born leader who is not hesitant to express his thoughts to his team mates. Therefore, I am not shocked that Ange has given the Italian some leadership responsibility.
