Tottenham boss Ange Postecoglou unlocks secret weapon that Antonio Conte was denied

Tottenham boss Ange Postecoglou is reaping the rewards from a signing made under Antonio Conte.

Although Destiny Udogie was signed by Tottenham a year ago, Antonio Conte may be envious of the impact the full-back has made since being a member of the team this summer. Ange Postecoglou has given Tottenham a breath of fresh air, restoring the feel-good factor for the first time in a few years.

His attack-focused style of play has completely changed a Tottenham team that under Conte last year appeared to lack any attacking confidence. The Italian, whose profession is creating stiff defensive groups, was unable to duplicate this achievement in north London.

Cristian Romero proved to be a wise acquisition, as the Argentine is now regarded as the defensive core of Tottenham. Postecoglou has the center-back operating at full capacity, and Romero has eliminated some of the hasty decisions from the previous season.

Conte, though, was unable to achieve his goals in the full-back area. When Conte was unable to come up with a winning formula, he used Pedro Porro, Ivan Perisic, Emerson Royal, Ben Davies, Sergio Reguilon, Matt Doherty, and Ryan Sessegnon in the offensive wing-back positions.

Udogie, who plays on the left side of defense, might have provided Postecoglou with the solution. Under Conte’s leadership, Tottenham reached an agreement to sign the highly regarded full-back last year.

However, it was decided to lend Udogie back to Udinese for the remainder of the campaign right away. With three goals and four assists, the 20-year-old made an impression in Serie A and displayed his offensive skills.

And in his first five games for Tottenham, his offensive prowess has already been on display. He contributed back-to-back assists in the victories over Bournemouth and Burnley, and Postecoglou has already made him one of the first names on the roster.

One of the most dynamic young left-backs in European football is gradually becoming known for him. Udogie might not have featured much, if at all, for Tottenham last season given Conte’s propensity for passing up on young players.

However, Postecoglou’s confidence in the young player is paying off because he is a part of an exciting Tottenham team that is making waves in the league. And given that Udogie is now seen as a crucial part of Postecoglou’s team, the £21 million Tottenham paid to get him a year ago is quickly appearing to have been a true steal.
