Spurs ´need change´, says Postecoglou

Tottenham boss Ange Postecoglou has conceded Spurs “need change” after a poor run of form has seen their Champions League hopes fade.

Spurs sit fifth in the Premier League, but a sorry performance against Chelsea in a 2-0 loss on Thursday left them seven points behind Aston Villa.

Tottenham have lost their last three matches, conceding nine goals, though those defeats have come against Newcastle United, Arsenal and Chelsea.

And while Postecoglou has had a promising first season, he stressed the requirement for changes to Spurs’ playing squad if they are to settle wholly into his preferred style of play.

“We need change. Change has to happen,” Postecoglou said ahead of Sunday’s clash with Liverpool.

“We’re pivoting to a whole different direction, expecting the same people are going to be in on that… it’s just not going to happen.

“We’ve had two windows and we’ve had some development of players, for sure, but when I say we’ve still got a long way to go, that’s what I’m talking about.

“We can’t be there yet because it’s impossible to say you’re going to have drastic change and yet expect everyone to be on that journey… whether it’s Liverpool or Arsenal, by the time they win the competition or have success, the team’s almost unrecognisable.”

Richarlison, who enjoyed a rich run of form earlier in the campaign but has not scored since netting twice against his former club Everton in February, is one of the players who Spurs will reportedly listen to offers for in the upcoming transfer window.

After playing Liverpool, Spurs face Burnley and Manchester City before rounding off their campaign against already-relegated Sheffield United.
