“Postecoglou won’t magically bring Tottenham any trophies,” Louis Saha

The former Tottenham player Louis Saha, has been speaking about the appointment of Ange Postecoglou as the manager at one of his old clubs and the former striker is underwhelmed if a little ignorant in his less that insightful remarks about the former Celtic boss getting the Spurs job.

Sara admits that he not familiar with Postecoglou, so is not surprised that the Spurs fans are frustrated with Daniel Levy’s decision to recruit his next manager from the Scottish Premiership. And Sara reckons that those who are saying Postecoglou will ‘magically win Spurs trophies’ are being disrespectful to former managers Mourinho and Conte, although it seems strange that he’s pulling folk up on their lack of respect when he’s proving himself guilty as charged for the very same offence, not only to Postecoglou, but also to CELTIC.

“I’m not surprised Spurs fans are frustrated with Postecoglou because he’s from Celtic,” Louis Saha says, speaking to Betway Insider.

“It’s a hard time for Tottenham fans to accept any decision from the club because they are frustrated and have just watched a horrible season, an almost disrespectful season for them with some of the poor results they had. They will comment and criticise Postecoglou’s appointment, that’s normal, but he does deserve a chance first,” Sara said.

“Postecoglou will have to prove that he is worthy of being a Premier League and Tottenham’s manager. Yes, he’s done well with Celtic, but I’m not familiar with him so I’m not surprised some fans are frustrated. Any manager who comes into this role at Tottenham will always be criticised because it’s a hard job,” the former Spurs star stated.

“Whether Tottenham wins any trophies soon is not a matter of who the manager is. It could be a tremendously qualified winning manager, it still would not guarantee trophies for Tottenham. I respect what Ange Postecoglou has done with Celtic in Scotland, but it’s not quite the Premier League.

“There are six or seven teams that can win the Premier League title, Chelsea will come back, Liverpool, Arsenal, both Manchester clubs and maybe Newcastle whom Tottenham will have to compete with.

“Postecoglou won’t magically bring Tottenham any trophies, saying that is disrespecting Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte, who are some of the best managers of this era. I want to be wrong, but it has nothing to do with who the manager is, but if he can sign the right players and build a project that hasn’t been done before, that could be the trophy-winning factor.”
