Ange Postecoglou cracks Lewis Hamilton joke after teasing Tottenham transfer on ‘flat day’ | Football | Sport

Tottenham enjoyed a busy transfer window overall, with Postecoglou being rewarded with new signings for his side’s strong start to the campaign. The north London outfit addressed their lack of depth at both ends of the pitch whilst also laying the foundations for future success in midfield.

With Spurs’ defensive department appearing very thin, Radu Dragusin was signed from Genoa in a deal worth £26million – with the Romanian international snubbing a move to Bayern Munich in favour of the Premier League switch.

Timo Werner was then signed on a loan-to-buy deal from RB Leipzig, with teenage prospect Lucas Bergvall in the process of finalising his move to Tottenham. However, when quizzed about his overall feelings about the transfer window, Postecoglou began to explain that there was one ‘disappointing’ moment that stood out in particular before revealing that he was actually referencing Hamilton’s Formula One team switch.

He said: “The only disappointing one for us was that I felt there was a good opportunity for us, but the club didn’t feel it was right and he ended up going elsewhere. He went to Ferrari instead…..I got you all going there, didn’t I? I felt you needed something after a bit of a flat day yesterday.”

In, arguably, the biggest move on deadline day, British driver Hamilton revealed that he was set to leave Mercedes at the end of the year in favour of joining Ferrari.

Postecoglou’s joke went down a storm among supporters, who have grown fond of his light-heartedness during conferences. The Australian boss went on to provide a true analysis of his side’s window though, saying: “We had clear objectives. We had a gap at centre-back after letting Davinson Sanchez go and getting Radu in was great. Getting Timo early also excellent. We’ve had injuries with Sonny away, and already he’s made a contribution. If we left it to the last day it takes time to settle. Both have settled well.

“With outgoings, we got some good loans. With Alejo it’s great for him to get game time at a good club. Also players like Ashley Phillips and Alfie Devine got good loans.”
