Lange will oversee recruitment, analytics, and talent identification for both senior and academy teams. Aston Villa has confirmed Lange’s departure and announced Matthew Kidson as the club’s new director of global development, supervised by Monchi.
Lange’s appointment aims to bolster Tottenham’s football operations, following Paratici’s resignation in April. Spurs have seen a resurgence under manager Ange Postecoglou this season, currently topping the Premier League table.
