‘Tactical Manager’ Right-hand man decides to stay at Tottenham
Head coach Chris Davis has decided to remain at Tottenham.
Recently, Head Coach Davis received interest from Swansea City. Swansea, who are familiar to Korean fans as the team where Ki Sung-yueng played in the past, have yet to achieve promotion to the Premier League after being relegated to the English Championship (second division) in the 2017-18 season.
In the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons, expectations were growing as they advanced to the promotion play-offs, but their performance in the last two seasons remained in the mid-tier and they were unable to even properly challenge for promotion.
Swansea, who are in good spirits, have appointed a new manager, Michael Duff, ahead of the 2023-24 season. But this seems like a wrong choice. They were put in a position where they had to worry about relegation to League 1 (3rd division), which was not even at mid-tier level.
In early December, when Swansea made its first attempt to fire coach Duff and bring in head coach Davis, Swansea was ranked 18th. Swansea, who are still in 18th place, are only 5 points away from the relegation zone. 안전놀이터.
Accordingly, they aimed to turn the atmosphere around by appointing head coach Davis. Head coach Davis had originally worked with Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers since his time at Swansea. He only began to walk his own path after manager Rodgers was sacked at Leicester City. Head coach Davis, who has been working under coach Postekoglou, is known to have contributed a lot to drawing up the team’s tactical plan.
If head coach Davis leaves, there could be a big vacuum in the coaching staff. However, Head Coach Davis chose Tottenham. On the 17th (Korean time), reporter Alesdier Gold, who works at Football London in England and is well-versed in Tottenham’s situation, said, “It is good news for coach Postekoglou that head coach Davis has decided to remain at Tottenham. . Head Coach Davis left a big impression behind the scenes. He enjoyed working with director Posteko Glu. “It will take something special to convince him to leave Tottenham.”
