Ange Postecoglou emphasized that Tottenham’s progress this season should not be solely evaluated based on their position in the table, expressing his desire to cultivate a team that garners different perceptions and discussions within the next year.

Since joining from Celtic last summer, the 58-year-old has significantly altered the club’s atmosphere and results.

His implementation of an attacking style of play has positioned Spurs competitively in the race for a Champions League berth, following a disappointing eighth-place finish in the previous season.

Their recent 2-1 victory over Luton Town propelled them within three points of fourth-placed Aston Villa, with a game in hand.

Despite the club’s pursuit of Champions League qualification, Postecoglou remains committed to his broader vision for Tottenham’s future.

“We aim to conclude the season strongly and continue building upon the foundation of evolving into a team that, hopefully, will be perceived and discussed differently in the coming year,” Postecoglou stated during a news conference on Monday.

“For us to achieve that, it requires more than just our final standing and point tally. While a strong finish will likely secure us a respectable position, our focus extends beyond mere statistics. We’ll assess our progress accordingly.”

Regarding Saturday’s triumph over Luton, secured by a late goal from Son Heung-Min, who notched his 15th goal of the season, Postecoglou commended the South Korean’s leadership qualities since being appointed captain at the beginning of the campaign.

“The decision to appoint Son as captain wasn’t a difficult one. While Hugo Lloris, Harry Kane, and Eric Dier have significantly contributed to the club, it was essential to signify a new direction,” Postecoglou explained.

“I believed Son possessed innate leadership qualities, evident in his role within his national team. Hence, I had no reservations about entrusting him with the captaincy.

“Although assuming an official title can sometimes be burdensome, Son’s performances have been consistently outstanding.”

Next, Tottenham faces a challenging away fixture against seventh-placed West Ham on Tuesday.
