Tottenham technical director excited about the club's future

Tottenham technical director Johan Lange is optimistic about the club's future and believes they are entering an era of success on the field.

Lange joined Spurs in October as technical director and was able to oversee a productive winter transfer window with Timo Werner, Radu Dragusin and Swedish teenager Lucas Bergvall signing, while a number of fringe players left on permanent or loan deals.

Tottenham head coach Ange Postecoglou has spoken highly of Lange over the past few weeks and talked up the importance of an alignment running through the club, which the ex-Aston Villa sporting director echoed.

"Firstly and very importantly we arrived into the January market completely aligned, the chairman (Daniel Levy), Ange, Scott (Munn) and myself," Lange told SpursPlay.

"You always aim to be stronger after the window and use it to build a squad that is in alignment with the style of football and the methodology.

"That is not a one or two window job but the club have taken some very important steps in the past six or seven months.

"There's a great energy around the training ground, around the first team level, around the women's team, in the academy as well. We all believe we're writing the first paragraph in what hopefully will be a very successful chapter for the football club."

Postecoglou urged Tottenham to do their business quickly last month and got his wish with the arrivals of Werner and Dragusin during the first half of the window.

However, Spurs did complete a transfer late on with Bergvall agreeing to sign for the club on his 18th birthday from Djurgarden.

Bergvall will officially join Tottenham in the summer after he picked the Premier League club over Barcelona.

Lange added: "We want to be a destination for the best young talent out there.

"That can be talent coming into our academy in the foundation phase, or later and being developed in the academy, or in this case with Lucas it can be a player we decide to try to see if we can buy them from a club abroad, in this case Djurgarden.

"Lucas is a very mature player, despite just turning 18. He's a box-to-box midfielder, very good in possession, able to control the game and the same out of possession.

"He has a great work rate. Then for his age, he's mature and on top of that he also has a very good family and support network around him, so he has great potential."
