Tottenham Hotspur’s new coach Enzi Postecoglou is different from his predecessor Antonio Conte in every way. Among them, mercenary skills stand out. Postekoglou gave opportunities to players who had been completely ignored by Conte, thereby unleashing their potential.
British media ‘Express’ reported on the 18th (Korean time), ‘Tottenham바카라사이트 Postekoglou has released the secret weapon that Conte refused to use. It was reported that Postecoglou enjoyed the rewards of signing during the Conte era.
The protagonist is left fullback Destiny Udogi (21). Ahead of the 2022-2023 season, Tottenham signed Udogi, an Italian prospect from Serie A Udinese Calcio, for a relatively cheap transfer fee of 21 million pounds (about 34.5 billion won).
But Conte did not include Udoggi in his plans. He was pushed out by the likes of Ivan Perisic, Emerson Royal, Ryan Sessegnon, Ben Davis, Pedro Foro, Sergio Reguilon and Matt Doherty. As soon as he transferred, Udogi was loaned back to his former team, Udinese.
Postekoglou, who took charge of Tottenham ahead of this season, used Udogi as a key player. Udoggi lived up to expectations and took over as the starting player.
Express said, ‘Udogi’s offensive ability has already shone in the five games he has played in a Tottenham uniform. He recorded consecutive assists against Bournemouth and Burn Region. ‘He is quickly developing a reputation as one of the most exciting young left-backs in Europe.’
The core of Conte’s strategy was the wingback, but he failed to recognize this resource, so he deserves to hit the ground and regret it.
Express said, ‘Conte does not give young stars a chance. He predicted, ‘Even if Udogi was at Tottenham, he might not have played much.’
In addition to Udogi, central midfielder Yves Bissouma also shined with the change of coach. Conte didn’t use Bissouma well either. Postekoglou placed Bissouma, James Maddison, and Pape Sar in midfield. The Express said: ‘Bissouma appeared to disappear under Conte last season. Postekoglou woke Bisuma. I expected that there was something special about Bissouma.
The only players who still remain in the best 11 in Conte’s system are Son Heung-min, Dejan Klusevski, and Christian Romero.
