Tottenham Hotspur won their second straight Premier League game on Friday, putting them back on track.
Spurs defeated Nottingham Forest 2-0 to tie Manchester City for the most points in the standings.
While analyzing the match on Sky Sports, Gary Neville continued with a statement that Ange Postecoglou’s supporters “won’t like.”
Specifically, that if Pep Guardiola were to depart during the next few years, the Tottenham manager would be a great pick for the Citizens.
Premier League game between Tottenham Hotspur and Nottingham Forest
In injury time during the first half at the City Ground, Postecoglou’s charges took the lead. To get it home for his third, Dejan Kulusevski sent in a fantastic cross for Richarlison in two games.
Anthony Elanga’s tap-in goal in the 58th minute gave Forest the impression that they had tied the score, but VAR rejected it because he was ahead of the Spurs defense.
Seven minutes later, Kulusevski turned from being a supplier to a goal scorer, smashing home a strike that went through Matt Turner’s hands to double Tottenham’s lead.
Yves Bissouma’s lunge on Ryan Yates earned him a red card, but Spurs managed to hold on for all three points and a clean sheet even though they ended the match with ten men.
Tottenham had a great start to the season, but a slew of injuries and bans caused them to lose their way. It appears, nevertheless, that Spurs have turned the corner.
“Wow, that’s what we hope to witness.
Postecoglou is undoubtedly the real deal, and Neville hinted that in the future, he might succeed Guardiola.
At full time, he stated on Sky Sports, “What he’s done in such a short period of time is quite staggering because he’s not only implemented an idea of play.”
“When seen from a football perspective, what he has put in place is incredibly intricate and amazing to behold.
“It can take two or three seasons, not just months and 40 or 50 games, to get guys into roles and be like clockwork.
Even at Man City, Pep Guardiola found it challenging to communicate his ideas.
And if Man City were to lose Pep Guardiola in a year or two, you would be staring at Ange Postecoglou and saying, ‘Wow, that is what we want to see.’ Spurs fans won’t like this, but he is wonderful.”
Ange Postecoglou has the ability to make Tottenham Hotspur into a massive team.
After stating that, Gary Neville is probably not going to be very popular with the Spurs supporters.
Ange Postecoglou has been a complete revelation since joining the Premier League, and Tottenham has struck gold with his acquisition.
In terms of their management, Spurs do have a lot going for them that might help them hold off Manchester City.
Tottenham is a well-funded Premier League team based in London. They have a brand-new, cutting-edge stadium and a successful recent record that includes a Champions League final.
Yes, City is a tremendous team that has won a ton of trophies in the last 12 years, but they had to create that. Spurs also have a high potential; all they need is assistance to create something truly amazing.
If that were to occur, why would Postecoglou then try to sign with a rival Premier League team?
