Giovani Lo Celso, a midfielder for Tottenham Hotspur, is apparently dissatisfied with his circumstances at the London-based team.
At the conclusion of the last campaign, the 27-year-old returned from his loan assignment, and there were rumors that he might be permanently traded. Even though Tottenham was able to keep him, he has had trouble getting regular playing time.
The Argentine international wants to leave Tottenham in the January transfer window because he needs to play more frequently at this point in his career.
Real Betis are reportedly interested in signing the 27-year-old playmaker, according to a report from the Spanish daily AS (h/t SportWitness). It would be fascinating to see if the two teams can quickly reach a deal.
It is possible that Lo Celso’s return to the Spanish club may help him rediscover his form and confidence because he has previously demonstrated his talent in the Spanish league.
It is clear that the midfielder no longer enjoys playing football, and he needs to decide on his long-term plans before turning his attention back to the game.
Tottenham should try to cut their losses on the player and let him leave in the upcoming months because he has no future at the North London club.
The 27-year-old could end up being a great addition to Real Betis, as he will boost their technical prowess, scoring potential, and inventiveness in the final third. He is adaptable enough to play both as a winger and as the centre offensive midfielder.
“It didn’t work” – Daniel Levy admits to making a big strategic mistake that cost him mush
Speaking on a fan forum, Daniel Levy acknowledged hiring errors he had made in the past.
Under Mauricio Pochettino, Tottenham was a legitimate team that had spent years assembling a world-class squad.
They played appealing football, consistently placed in the top four, and had a distinct identity.
Under him, they also came extremely close to winning trophies several times, and in his final season, they nearly won the Champions League before losing to Liverpool.
After that, Pochettino was fired, and Levy has since acknowledged that the club changed its strategy and began employing “win now managers” rather than project managers.
When questioned about what had transpired during the previous few seasons and the reason for the absence of silverware, Levy responded (via ROTS1882):
“With Poch, we were so close, but we changed our approach and chose win-now management; it didn’t work, bad hires.
Therefore, I recruited Ange because I thought it may take longer and that perhaps we needed this plan.
They brought in managers like Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte, neither of whom were successful with the team.
Instead, the team lost the identity it developed under Pochettino and ended up playing some of the league’s least interesting and uninspiring football.
Both of their terrible man management techniques had an impact on the atmosphere within the camp.
The club took their time finding a replacement after Conte was let go.
They were linked to several high-profile candidates, like Julian Nagelsmann and Luis Enrique, but ultimately chose to choose Ange Postecoglou, who is arguably the least popular of the bunch.
And it turned out to be a brilliant choice. At the club, Ange Postecoglou has already had a significant impact. He immediately improved the atmosphere.
He has forged a unique connection between the coach, the players, and the supporters. The players enjoy playing for him, and they are producing some of the league’s most visually appealing football. In just a few months, all of this.
Even though Ange hasn’t yet been able to totally rebuild the team, the players he has brought in are world-class additions.
The old Tottenham appears to be returning for the first time under Ange, and there is no doubt that the future is exciting.
