Tottenham have appointed Johan Lange as technical director.
His previous role was with Aston Villa. His role at Villa Park changed when ex-Sevilla director of football Monchi joined in June.
He will join Tottenham and Daniel Levy from 1 November.
According to the record, Lange has an excellent track record of scouting and signing many successful and talented youth and senior players.
Lange will be responsible for Spurs’ recruitment and talent identification across senior and academy teams.
“We are delighted to announce that Johan Lange has been appointed Technical Director with effect from 1 November, 2023.
Lange will have responsibility for recruitment, analytics and talent identification across our senior and academy teams.
Lange held the role of Global Director of Football Development and International Academies at Aston Villa from June 2023, having previously been Sporting Director from June 2020. Lange oversaw several high-profile player transfers, a period that saw Aston Villa move to the top half of the table.
In 2014, Lange, having previously been an Assistant Coach, rejoined FC Copenhagen as Development Director and then Technical Director the same season.
Commenting on his appointment, Scott Munn, Chief Football Officer, said, “Johan has demonstrated an excellent track record of scouting and signing many talented and successful youth and senior players. He is a welcome addition as we strengthen our football operations.””
