‘Very angry’: Dejan Kulusevski discloses why one Tottenham man was absolutely furious at half-time yesterday

Dejan Kulusevski has admitted that Tottenham Hotspur boss Ange Postecoglou was ‘very angry’ at half-time as Spurs faced Shakhtar Donetsk yesterday.

Tottenham defeated the Ukrainian team 5-1 in North London on Sunday, with Harry Kane scoring four times.

Spurs produced numerous chances in the first half but failed to capitalize until the 38th minute.

After James Maddison won Tottenham a penalty with some clever trickery inside Shakhtar’s box, Kane made no mistake from the spot.

Spurs, though, allowed Shakhtar back into the game just before halftime when Kevin Kelsy’s header beat Guglielmo Vicario.

And, according to Dejan Kulusevski, Ange Postecoglou was not happy with his team’s attitude in the closing five minutes of the half.

Postecoglou, according to Kulusevski, was upset with his Tottenham players for sitting back after taking the lead.

“I like him a lot,” he said. “He was also very angry at halftime because we stopped playing for five minutes, and you can’t be like that.” You must always be playing.

“You can’t give them the ball just because you’re tired.” Things like that happen. So I like him a lot and am looking forward to growing under his tutelage.”

Postecoglou’s half-time warning must have sunk home, as Spurs went on to score four goals in the second half.

Kane added three more to his tally before Dane Scarlett replaced him and also got on the scoresheet.

Postecoglou sets his teams up to attack and put the opposition under heavy pressure. It’s no surprise the Aussie boss was unimpressed after watching his players sit back after going 1-0 up.

Of course, for the majority of Tottenham’s players, Postecoglou’s approach will come as a drastic change for them after working under Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho.

But it should be an exciting season for Tottenham fans under a manager who prides himself on his side playing attractive football.
