Tottenham Hotspur media round-up: Pochettino explains biggest benefit of final defeat


A round up of news stories this morning related to Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has been quoted by talkSPORT suggesting the biggest benefit for his younger players from the League Cup defeat last weekend.

The boss feels it will be a great learning curve for the players and will help them grow in terms of their mentality.

Tottenham lost the game against Chelsea 2-0 and face Swansea in their first match after the defeat this evening.

“I spoke about the final [and how] to improve, this is a good game for growing, I think this is a very, very good opportunity to improve,” said Pochettino.

Mauricio Pochettino has been quoted by the Irish Examiner suggesting that he will talk with the FA to ensure Harry Kane doesn’t suffer with fatigue.

Kane has become one of Tottenham’s most important players at a young age and in a season where Spurs have already played plenty of matches.

The worry is that fatigue will creep into his game over the last part of what could be a vital season for the club.

“We’ll speak with the FA and Harry and take in the season altogether,” said the boss.

Pochettino has also been quoted by the Daily Mail suggesting that the death of Dave Mackay is tragic for the club.

News broke yesterday that the former player had sadly passed away and he’ll go down as one of the club’s best ever players.

He embodied the fighting spirit and true nature of the football club.
