Mauricio Pochettino manager

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino addressed the media in the aftermath of his side's disappointing 2-1 home defeat to Liverpool today, and responded when asked to give his opinion on Michel Vorm's display, as quoted by Football.London.

Spurs were looking to bounce back following their defeat to Watford two weeks ago, but were put firmly in their place by Jürgen Klopp's impressive Reds side.


Vorm was arguably at fault for both goals, and Tottenham fans will surely be left thinking what might have been, had Hugo Lloris been between the sticks.

Pochettino sat down for his post-match press conference, and responded when asked whether he blames the Dutchman for his side's defeat to Liverpool, as quoted by Football.London:

"If you ask me if it was his mistake I say it wasn’t his mistake. Maybe my vision is different. But I accept other opinions. It was a complicated situation with Van Dijk and Vertonghen in front of him. Hugo would have found it difficult to get to the ball as well. Also when you lose people look to people on the pitch. It’s so unfair. If you analyse I don’t think it was his mistake. Michel is responsible like everyone on the pitch. I am happy with his performance. It’s not easy these seasons being in the shadow of Hugo Lloris."

Vorm, 34, joined Tottenham from Swansea City in the summer of 2014, but he has struggled to establish himself in north London, and despite Poch's words of support, today's display will not help his chances of earning more regular action one little bit.
