Postecoglou Dismisses ‘Good Football’ Talk After West Ham Loss
Tottenham’s manager, Ange Postecoglou, dismissed any notion of praise for his team’s ‘good football’ display despite their 2-1 loss against West Ham. Despite Cristian Romero providing an initial boost, West Ham rallied back with goals from Jarrod Bowen and James Ward-Prowse to secure the win.
Following the match, when a club reporter highlighted Tottenham’s impressive first-half performance, Postecoglou refuted the notion. He adamantly stated that their performance wasn’t satisfactory, emphasizing that playing attractive football should translate into victories, not just compliments.
Postecoglou reiterated to the players that their focus should be on achieving victories rather than receiving commendations solely for their style of play. He emphasized the importance of success for Tottenham rather than superficial praise for their playing style.
Tottenham’s string of matches without a win, despite holding 1-0 leads in five consecutive games, has seen them drop to fifth place, level with Manchester United at 27 points.
Up next, Tottenham faces Eddie Howe’s Newcastle at home. Newcastle, seeking a comeback after their 3-0 loss to Everton, will aim to rebound against Tottenham.
