Ange Postecoglou hails ‘super’ Brennan Johnson as the Spurs striker finds his feet

18:10 , Ben Fleming

Ange Postecoglou has spoken about Brennan Johnson’s growing influence and has been impressed with the way he has handled his debut season at Tottenham.

Johnson joined Spurs for a fee of £47.5 million from Nottingham Forest on transfer deadline day in September and initially struggled to make his mark, scoring just one goal during the first half of the season.

However, the Welsh forward has flourished since December. He scored in comeback wins over Brentford and Brighton and has also made key contributions off the bench against Crystal Palace and Luton in recent weeks.

Ahead of Tuesday’s trip to West Ham, Postecoglou said: “Brennan was superb over the weekend.

“He is still young, he is developing. He’s moved to a big club where expectations are high when you have a big transfer fee, but for the most part I think he’s handled it very well.”

The Brazilian could be back in the starting line-up tonight and last week opened up about his battle with depression after the 2022 World Cup, saying his struggle with his mental health “saved my life”.

“I had just played a World Cup at my peak, man,” Richarlison said. “I reached my limit, you know? I don’t know, I’m not going to talk about committing suicide, but I was in a depression there and I wanted to give up.

“Even me, who seemed mentally strong. After the World Cup it seemed like everything was falling apart.

“I think the therapist, whether I like it or not, saved me, saved my life. I just thought nonsense. Even on Google I only looked for nonsense, I only wanted to see nonsense about death.”

Johnson set up Issa Kabore’s own goal in the 51st minute to put Son ahead four minutes from time to help the hosts bounce back from their humiliation at Fulham two weeks ago with a much-needed win.
