Title Winning is a mentality that cannot be bought — it has to come from the culture within a club. Degree of recognition National Media name/outlet The Times Media type Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 27/03/23 Description It is not as if the football strategy is in itself commendable, according to Sarthak Mondal, lecturer in sport management at the University of Portsmouth.
“There are three kinds of players you need to build a team,” he says. “There are the long-term prospects who you bring in aged 18 or 19, the medium-term prospects who are 24 and leave by the time they have one last contract so the club can make some money, then the third kind who are the stop-gap solution. In my view the club have allowed managers to bring in players who suit their style every time. And none of them can play with each other.
“They need to build a culture that sets them up for long-term success. At Chelsea, in the Roman Abramovich era, they bought in players that suited the team, not the manager, and that has not happened at Tottenham.
“Winning is a mentality that cannot be bought — it has to come from the culture within a club.”
