‘what he did with Poch…’: Ian Wright urges Levy not to repeat his mistake with Postecoglou

By Saikat -

Former Arsenal striker and Premier League legend Ian Wright has now urged Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy to back his manager during the January transfer window.

The Tottenham chairman has often been criticised for his lack of ambition in the transfer market and Wright believes that Levy should help Tottenham sign quality players during the January window so that they can sustain their current run of form and finish the season strongly.

When Spurs were on the up under Mauricio Pochettino, Levy was blamed for not backing the manager during crucial stages of the rebuild and Tottenham ended up without silverware. Pochettino managed to challenge for the title with Tottenham and he guided them to the final of the UEFA Champions League as well. However, his team could not cross the final hurdle because of the lack of depth and quality on the side.

Wright has urged Levy not to repeat his mistake with Ange Postecoglou and back the manager.

The Arsenal legend said on The Kelly and Wrighty Show, “I think Levy this January more than any other time, and I know it’s very difficult to get really top-end players, he really does have to back Ange with some players.

“What he doesn’t want to get into is what he did with Poch, after the Champions League and them finishing second, he wanted to get some out and bring some in and he ended up moving on. Tottenham regressed, with Conte and then Mourinho. Ange is bringing them back, he needs to be backed.”

It is no secret that Tottenham need to bring in multiple reinforcements in January. They should look to sign a quality central defender, a central midfielder and a striker. It will be interesting to see if Levy is prepared to fund moves and bring in the necessary reinforcements.

Tottenham have made an impressive start to the current campaign and they will be desperate to return to the UEFA Champions League. Signing the right players in January will certainly boost their chances of securing a top four finish.
