Postecoglou sends pointed message to Levy over Tottenham transfer plans

Tottenham’s team would not have been large enough to compete in the Champions League this year, according to Ange Postecoglou. Last season, Spurs had three different managers in charge and finished eighth, missing out entirely on playing in Europe.

The Lilywhites haven’t participated in European play since the 2009–10 season, which is the first time since that time. A season away from it to focus on the Premier League under a new head coach may not be the worst thing, even though it is really depressing to see other clubs prepare for Champions League and Europa League matchups this week.

Since taking over in the summer, Postecoglou has already witnessed a change in the roster of players and the way the team plays at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Many players have left, including Antonio Conte’s realistic style, while fresh additions have made the locker room more cheery.

Harry Kane, who left Tottenham for Bayern Munich in a £100 million deal, was the most notable departure. He was the one departing player Postecoglou wished he had kept.The news that Tottenham does, in fact, have a buyback clause in Kane’s Bayern Munich contract has fans excited about the possibility of seeing the team’s all-time leading scorer return in the future.

Seven new players joined the team while nine players overall left the team, either permanently or on loans. The loan decisions made by Pedro Porro and Dejan Kulusevski were likewise made permanent.

Last week, Spurs announced their 25-man Premier League roster, with players like Ashley Phillips, Pape Matar Sarr, Destiny Udogie, and Alejo Veliz included on the U21 list. Despite the fact that four of the 25 players were goalkeepers.

Additionally, Postecoglou has written chairman Daniel Levy a transfer message regarding the forthcoming January transfer window and even the summer transfer window after the conclusion of the 2023–24 season. The Australian claimed that the squad wasn’t large enough.

“We are at the beginning of what we are trying to build, we’ve had a positive transfer window, and we need to keep building the squad,” Postecoglou said during a supporters’ conference. Never was it going to occur in just one window.

“I had more objectives, but because I had fewer targets, I made it difficult for Daniel. I want the right players, not just any players. I want Champions League and European football. We would struggle if the Champions League started this week, but that was always the intention, therefore we need a larger team to accomplish that. The squad will expand as planned.
