Ange says ‘magnificent’ Tottenham player is back for Crystal Palace clash
Ben Davies’s fitness status has improved, according to Tottenham Hotspur manager Ange Postecoglou, before of the Crystal Palace game.
Speaking to the media prior to Friday night’s Premier League trip, the Spurs boss confirms that the Wales international is available following his absence from the previous game.
Due to an injury sustained in training, Davies did not start on the bench for Tottenham’s victory over Fulham on Monday night.
In response to a question from football.london on Postecoglou’s fitness, the Spurs manager stated that the 30-year-old was good to go.
Indeed, he is alright, Postecoglou remarked. The day before training, he received a knock.
It’s true that our training occasionally verges on the dangerous side, and he regrettably took a nasty one during it.
“It was just a knock, but it kept him out because it was the day before the game.” He is well-trained, confident, and prepared to travel.
Davies available once again for Tottenham
It’s fantastic to hear this. It appears that the knock wasn’t a major problem.
It’s hardly surprise that Postecoglou is being cautious with his player management given the short turnaround between the Fulham game and the Palace encounter, especially with those who were absent during the international break.
It was fortunate that Davies received a rest following the blow because he started both of Wales’ games during the international break.
Even though Davies is a “magnificent” player, he hasn’t played much this term. Only four Premier League games have he played in, and those were all as a substitute.
But he did captain Tottenham against Fulham in the Carabao Cup, demonstrating how highly Postecoglou regards him both in the team and in the locker room.
‘Unbelievable’: Ange Postecoglou says Tottenham player who he’s only picked once is unreal in training
Fraser Forster, according to Tottenham Hotspur boss Ange Postecoglou, is amazing every day in training.
The Spurs have started the new season incredibly well, and Postecoglou deserves a great deal of praise. Even the people who don’t often play at the club appear content right now. Among them is Forster, who appears to have a lot of fandom from the Tottenham manager.
Ange Postecoglou says Fraser Forster is ‘unbelievable’ in Tottenham training
Last year, Tottenham acquired Fraser Forster from Southampton on a free transfer.
Lionel Messi has lauded the Englishman, who was always going to be Spurs’ backup. He filled in for Hugo Lloris during the previous season, and presently Guiglielmo Vicario is his superior.
That hasn’t depressed Forster’s motivation in training, though. Ange Postecoglou seems to be a huge fan of the fact that he still seems to give it his all every day.
According to Football London, Postecoglou discussed the goalkeeping position at Spurs and remarked, “Rob [Burch, goalkeeping coach] has created a great environment.”
Vic is fortunate to practice with people like Fraser [Forster], who is incredibly skilled. Vic’s quality will rise as a result of Fraser’s attitude, work ethic, and excellence.
Forster has only played once this season
Players that get benched more often than not aren’t always content.
Forster, who has only received one opportunity to play this season under Postecoglou, would undoubtedly want to play more as well. But the veteran appears to be doing everything in his power to support the keepers in his immediate vicinity behind the scenes, and he is aware of his job.
Vicario, who is reportedly in training every day, according to Postecoglou, requires an experienced player to help mentor him during his debut season in England.
Forster’s “unbelievable” standards for training must have benefited the Italian.
