Spurs boss Ange Postecoglou hints at game time for 22-year-old ‘superstar’

Ange Postecoglou, the manager of Tottenham Hotspur, has said that Bryan Gil would play when he recovers from an injury.

The Spurs manager thinks the 22-year-old has the qualities to fit into his club in his remarks made prior to the Premier League matchup with Liverpool.

According to football.london, Postecoglou stated at his pre-game news conference that Gil’s inclusion in the team is “beneficial,” particularly in light of Ivan Perisic’s injury.

The Spurs talent went under the knife in August due to a groin issue and has missed the start of the season.

Gil was hoping for the chance to impress the new Tottenham boss in pre-season, but has not been able to do so due to the injury.

The Spaniard also missed Tottenham’s pre-season tour of Australia, Thailand and Singapore.

‘Can certainly fit into our structure’

Postecoglou, however, allayed worries about what might transpire regarding Gil’s playing time after his return.

“He’s been a bit unfortunate in that he’s had a couple of injuries that haven’t allowed him to train with the team since the start of preseason,” said the Spurs manager.

He played in a position where players with his attributes could definitely fit into our structure last year, and he had a good year away from this location.

“It’ll be good to see Bryan getting up to speed over the next couple of weeks, training with the team and then, obviously with Ivan going down, we’re one down in those wide areas so having him at the club is certainly beneficial.”

Our view

Gil joined Tottenham in 2021 and has showed glimpses of ‘dazzling‘ quality, leading Spurs icon Graham Roberts to call him a “little superstar“.

Admittedly, he hasn’t really kicked on since then, but then again, few players did under the previous Spurs managers.

Postecoglou has given chances to Tottenham players who were previously on the fringes, to great effect. Just look how well Yves Bissouma is doing now, for instance.

Hopefully it’ll be the same with Gil. It’s good to hear that Postecoglou seems keen on making use of him when he’s available again.
