According to the former Blues boss Avram Grant, the 24-year-old is thrilled to be at Spurs.
Here are the September 18 morning news headlines for Tottenham Hotspur.
‘Special’ Solomon signing
Following Manor Solomon’s summer transfer to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, former Chelsea manager Avram Grant praised Solomon as “special.” When the Israeli international transferred on loan from Shakhtar Donetsk to Fulham last season, he became the 17th player from his nation to compete in the Premier League.
Ange Postecoglou’s team raced in to recruit him as a free agent over the summer after he made an impression under Marco Silva at Craven Cottage, and he has immediately excelled under the Australian. The 24-year-old, who made his debut in the 2-0 victory over Manchester United, contributed significantly to the team’s strong start to the 2023–24 season by recording two assists in the 5-2 rout of Burnley.
Grant, who is presently in charge of the Zambian national team, singled out Solomon earlier this week as one of the top wingers in the Premier League. Grant said that he spoke to Solomon about moving to Spurs. Grant informed the Israeli news portal Ynet that Manor “is a special player; he was excellent at Fulham.”
“I chatted with him, and he’s excited to be at Tottenham; his killer instinct has improved. He’s among the best, and what makes him special is his incredible one-on-one talent,” the speaker added. In every way, he qualifies as a Premier League player.
Ange Postecoglou words
During his tenure as Celtic manager, Ange Postecoglou’s name became synonymous with three straightforward phrases as he guided the Bhoys to trophy after trophy. He frequently used the term “We never stop,” which perfectly captured Celtic’s dominance in Scotland.
The late performance on Saturday afternoon at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium may be summed up in those three terms. A day after winning Premier League manager of the month, the Australian appeared to be about to fall victim to the fabled curse as Spurs were headed for their first league loss under his leadership.
The Lilywhites made every effort to get back into the game after Gustavo Hamer’s well-placed goal put them behind in the 73rd minute, but they were unable to secure that crucial victory. It appeared like if Spurs were able to score once more, they would go on to score the game’s winning goal, but scoring the opening goal was the problem.
Strange Kulusevski message
Unsurprisingly, Tottenham’s stars were happy after overturning a 2-1 deficit to defeat Sheffield United on Saturday. Ange Postecoglou’s team pulled off a miraculous comeback with goals in the 98th and 100th minutes, extending their league-best unbeaten streak to five games.
It’s the first time in Spurs’ history that they have opened proceedings with 13 points out of a possible 15, which reflects the significant shift in the club’s culture. Ange Postecoglou’s jubilation with the cheering supporters during full-time only improved his stature and reputation.
There is a lot of optimism within the club going into the upcoming north London derby with Arsenal, and it has also spread to social media. Following the joyful celebrations following Dejan Kulusevski’s spectacular victory, he has turned to Instagram to express his emotions.
