Harry Redknapp gives Postecoglou and Tottenham a harsh reality check

Harry Redknapp feels Ange Postecoglou’s first season at Tottenham was very average

The former Tottenham Hotspur boss, Harry Redknapp, who took charge of the North London club last summer, feels Ange Postecoglou’s first season at Tottenham was just average but predicts that any disagreements with the club’s fans will be forgotten.

Redknapp said, “I like Ange Postecoglou very much. I like him an awful lot. But what do I make of the season? Very average, it was a very average season – going out early in both cups and not finishing in the top four with that squad. I wouldn’t say it was a fantastic season,” (via Football London)

Harry Redknapp delivers verdict on Postecoglou’s first season at Tottenham

While they have been playing an attacking and appealing brand of football under the Australian manager, early exits from cup competitions, as well as missing out on UCL football, are major reasons why former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp labelled Postecoglou’s debut season as mediocre.

Tottenham lost Harry to Bayern Munich on the eve of his first season. Despite losing their record goal scorer, they chose not to sign a replacement. Redknapp believes Spurs have the squad to finish in the top four despite losing Kane. He anticipated them to perform far better in cup events as well.

Former Tottenham Hotspur boss says friction between Ange and the fans will be quickly forgotten

Spurs have undoubtedly played high-quality football under Postecoglou; they ended up finishing fifth in the Premier League, a higher finish than Tottenham had achieved the season before his arrival, with more points, more goals scored, fewer conceded, and a new, more attacking style of play.

However, a late collapse during a difficult run-in meant Spurs lost out on the top four by two points, and Redknapp feels that combined with early departures from domestic tournaments, it was a dismal season.

Postecoglou and Spurs fans clashed late in the season when he claimed he couldn’t comprehend their desire for his club to lose to Manchester City to prevent Arsenal from gaining an edge in the Premier League championship chase. Redknapp expected that any conflict would soon be forgotten.

A top-four finish is essential for them right now, and Redknapp wants the former Celtic manager to grow in his first season and guarantee they compete for trophies again next season.
