Birmingham Mail reporter Ashley Preece explains what Johan Lange could bring to Tottenham Hotspur

Even as Fabio Paratici’s signings are starting to thrive at Tottenham Hotspur long after he is gone, Tottenham Hotspur have made an appointment – Johan Lange, who will assume responsibilities as the club’s technical director.

Paratici planted the seeds by signing some absolute gems for the club. Back then, not all of them managed to create an impression. Right now though, Tottenham are reaping the rewards for the Italian’s hard work.

Paratici had to leave his role abruptly though, due to a ban for 30 months by Italian authorities following an investigation into Juventus. Since then, Tottenham have not made a replacement until Lange.

The 43-year-old Dane will report directly to chief football officer Scott Munn, who joined the club this summer. It will be interesting to see how the duo work in tandem to improve the club’s resources.

Birmingham Mail reporter Ashley Preece who worked very closely with the Dane during their time at Villa Park explained what Lange can bring to the table at Tottenham, as quoted by Football. London

“Lange worked alongside academy manager Mark Harrison and identified top talents from Holland which included Lamare Bogarde and Sil Swinkels. Lange is all about the future value of players which is something he did really well at his previous gig at Copenhagen. Villa’s 19-year-old Colombian striker Duran could turn out to be Lange’s best-ever signings. We’ll wait and see”

After hearing this, every Tottenham Hotspur fan would be excited to see how his combination with Ange Postecoglou would work. The Australian gaffer has already shown a penchant for developing youngsters.

All the signings that Postecoglou made this summer transfer window were youngsters. Guglielmo Vicarion, Micky van de Ven, James Maddison, Manor Solomon and Brennan Johnson are players who are entering their prime or are yet to even get there.

Knowing now that Johan Lange also loves to bet on youngsters, this feels like a match made in heaven. The duo will undoubtedly try to create a philosophy where Tottenham try and sign high-potential youngsters.
