James Maddison reveals Tottenham's secret to success under Ange Postelogou
Tottenham Hotspur continued their unbeaten run in the Premier League following their 2-0 victory against Fulham at White Hart Lane.
Tottenham's midfielder, James Maddison revealed after the game why the team have been fantastic this season. According to him, Ange Postecoglou gave them a rule that was not negotiable when he took charge of his first training session.
He said to Sky Sports,
"It's one of the main messages [pressing high]. If you look back at the teams he has managed, they have always been front-pressing teams. The first day he came in, he said high-pressing is non-negotiable at any stage of the game. I think we had a game in pre-season when we went 2-0 up and sat back a little bit and he went ballistic at half-time. It was Shakhtar Donetsk here and he said it was how Tottenham have been in the past and he said it's a non-negotiable to carry on pressing throughout the entirety of the game.”
Spurs were one of the only two teams yet to taste a defeat this season (2023/24) alongside their fellow North London side, Arsenal. They are currently two points ahead of Manchester City and it could extend to five points if they beat Crystal Palace on Friday, October 27, 2023.
