Craig Burley claims that if Ange Postecoglou of Tottenham Hotspur does not fire Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Giovani Lo Celso, and Oliver Skipp, he will be given “the sack.”
This comes after Tottenham lost a penalty shootout to fellow Premier League team Fulham on Tuesday night to be eliminated from the EFL Cup.
Only one of them had previously started a game under Ange Postecoglou this season; Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Giovani Lo Celso, and Oliver Skipp all did so for Tottenham in the middle of the park.
As he stated to ESPN, former Scotland international Burley made it abundantly apparent that these guys needed to “get out” because they couldn’t advance Spurs’ fortunes.
Spurs’ performance was unchanged despite a different match, day, manager, and team.
The Tottenham supporters aren’t surprised since they’ve seen it all before, from the dubious Davinson Sanchez at center back to the slow-moving Hojbjerg in the middle of the field—a player who Manchester United is interested in signing.
Burley remarked, “This Tottenham squad isn’t deep enough or good enough.” “You observe the middle. Skipp, Lo Celso, and Hojbjerg. That will ultimately result in you being fired.
“It simply proves. Bentacur, who is a good footballer and at least that is a better caliber of player, is obviously going to return if something were to happen to Bissouma and Sarr.
But what was submitted tonight won’t truly do the trick. It will be more difficult for him if he can’t get them out and get better players while the transfer market is still open.
Postecoglou would have learned a lot
Since he entered the doors, Postecoglou has been enjoying the sunshine in the garden, but here is the moment the door slams into him.
This is where he would have gained the most knowledge, particularly regarding his teammates and who is capable moving forward.
It wouldn’t be a surprise if Postecoglou sent several of the players who played at Craven Cottage packing when the summer transfer window for 2023 slams shut on Friday.
