European Defeat Fires Up Tottenham’s Mauricio Pochettino For Next Season

European Defeat Fires Up Tottenham


“In the last week, we started to train and look forward to another season. We are still far away from where we expect to be, so it’s not just my challenge, but everyone’s challenge,” he said in Singapore ahead of Sunday’s pre-season friendly against Italian giants Juventus.

“You need to be a man and try to move on from the Champions League final, create some atmosphere and excitement to fight for big things.

“We cannot forget we came from that period of building our stadium, lodge and the training ground.

“The holiday was so tough for myself, difficult to move on from the final. We shared three fantastic weeks and it was the best atmosphere in five years and it was a shame to end the way it did.

“We deserved to win, to be better than a great team like Liverpool.”

Pochettino had been linked to some of Europe’s leading clubs last season, but a move now seems to be off the table.

Sitting next to Pochettino, England striker Harry Kane echoed his manager’s sentiments about being brave as the club hope to improve on their fourth-place finish after briefly flirting with a title challenge to champions Manchester City and runners-up Liverpool.

“We know it was there for the taking and it’s something we have to deal with over the summer,” Kane said of the Champions League final defeat.

“With everything last season I think we did extremely well. I haven’t watched the game again.”
