The new manager of Tottenham Hotspur is Australian specialist Ange Postecoglou, who has successfully worked with Australian clubs and the Australian national team, and also managed to prove himself in Celtic.

The new coach will have to do the job of returning Tottenham to the Champions League and Postecoglou should start with solving local problems.

Decide on the future of Harry Kane

The first thing that needs to be dealt with not only by the new manager, but also by the club’s management is the future of Tottenham leader Harry Kane.

The Spurs’ top scorer has a year left on his contract with the club and probably will not renew the agreement and will leave either this summer for money or a year later for free.

Now there is interest in Harry Kane from Bayern and Manchester United, but Daniel Levy does not want to give his best player to another English team, and Bayern are not yet ready to pay for Kane the amount that Tottenham are asking for.

Kane is a true professional and there is no doubt that if he stays for another season, his dedication will be at the highest level. But it is still important for the coach to understand whether he can count on Kane and, in accordance with this understanding, make plans for the new season.

In addition, if Kane still leaves, it will be necessary to quickly acquire a replacement for him, since now, apart from Harry, Postecoglou has only two high-level forwards – Son and Richarlison.

In general, buying another striker would be appropriate with Kane in the cage, but if he leaves, it is imperative to enter the transfer market for the striker.

Wake Richarlison

Postecoglou has a hidden potential to strengthen the composition in the person of Richarlison. Antonio Conte could not or did not want to use the Brazilian winger to his full potential, but there is no doubt that he is capable of much.

Even at a time when he did not score and played little at Tottenham, Richarlison shone at the World Cup in the Brazilian national team, showing that his problems at the new club were not so much due to the bad form of the player himself, as to the lack of trust in him.

Richarlison really needs trust – at Everton under Carlo Ancelotti, he simply flew on the field and was able to decide the outcome of matches for the “toffees single-handedly”. Postecoglou needs to find an approach to a talented but psychologically unstable player, and if he can wake up Richarlison, he will get a new strong combat unit in attack, which was not there last season.

Find a better use for Maddison

Leicester’s attacking midfielder James Maddison is Tottenham’s biggest summer signing so far. It is great luck to get such a creative, technical and smart player for relatively little money, moreover, a skilled set-piece performer.

Probably since the days of Luka Modric and Christian Eriksen, Spurs have not had such a bright playmaker.

But Maddison still needs to be integrated into the team’s game and create conditions for his best qualities to be revealed to the fullest and benefit the team. Maddison is an experienced player who is also familiar with many Spurs players on the England national team and the chances that he will become a member of his new team from the very first matches are high.

But the coach in any case needs to understand the player what talent he received and how best to use it.

Postecoglou in Celtic quickly dealt with the Japanese prodigy Furuhashi and created all the conditions for his progress – it was under him that the Japanese spent his best season in Celtic. We hope that in the case of Maddison, the Australian will be able to find an approach to the player.

Set up defensive play

Tottenham had a series of terrible games last season, with defensive failures leading to several goals conceded at the start of the game. First of all, I remember matches with Newcastle and Liverpool, but there were other fights in which the defense of the Spurs looked unsightly – for example, the game with Southampton.

Postecoglou needs to understand the causes of those failures and prevent them in the future.

Change team psychology

Antonio Conte slightly exaggerated the epithets he gave the team at the moment when he lost control of himself at a press conference, but in many ways the Italian manager was right. Many Tottenham players really have problems with psychology and the right motivation.

We hope that the loss of the Champions League and the season without European Cups will bring some players down to earth a little and become a challenge that the whole club and every player must accept.

Tottenham should play regularly in Europe, and its players should strive for victories, have the character of winners.
