‘Not Son Heung-min, but Xherdan Shaqiri?
EPL Tottenham specialist SpursWeb published a feature article on the appointment of Anjou Postecoglou as head coach of Tottenham Hotspur on April 18 (KST).
In the article, titled ‘Top 3 players who can be most effective under Postecoglou’s system’, it was reported that ‘Destiny Udoji, Tanguy Ndombele and Hicharry Son are the players who can be most effective under Postecoglou’s system’.
Udoji is a side-back option. The 20-year-old is a youngster with strong overlapping ability. His instantaneous speed and acceleration are among the best in the EPL, and he has a lot of power.
The outlet says: “Fullbacks and wingbacks are essential in the Postecoglou tactic. They play a pivotal role in defensive stability and counter-attacks,” and “Postecoglou favors a 4-3-3 formation and utilizes an inverted fullback.
An inverted full-back is a full-back who, unlike a traditional attacking full-back, moves forward to the third line to participate in build-ups. In addition to the flanks, he also creates a second line directly in front of the center back to play as a defensive midfielder at a moment’s notice.
The outlet also mentions Tanguy Ndombele, saying, “He has fitness issues, but he has excellent footwork and soccer intelligence. He is a versatile card who can utilize the space on the flanks and support the front line.
He added: ‘Postecoglou uses the winger well, not only on the flanks but also in the center. He has done well in this role at Everton and can play freely in the center of the opposition, and if Kane draws defenders in, he has the opportunity to explode through the second line.토토사이트
However, it is Son Heung-min who has proven to be the best at this role so far. Under Antonio Conte, he hasn’t been given a chance to play at all. Playing alongside Ivan Perisic, Son had the double whammy of defensive pressure and positional redundancy.
