Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino addressed the media in the aftermath of his side's superb 3-0 win over Borussia Dortmund last night, and shared what he told his players during the half-time break, as quoted by Football.London.

Spurs have been quite simply brilliant over the past few weeks, and have somehow mustered the quality and intensity to win four consecutive games without their two best players.


Pochettino deserves great credit for the job that he has done during his time in charge at Tottenham, as they continue to impress at the very highest level.

Spurs started slowly last night against Dortmund, and the two sides went into the half-time interval level, with the score standing at 0-0, but Pochettino obviously inspired his troops.

The Argentine told reporters exactly what was said at half-time, as quoted by Football.London:

"The first half was very difficult, first of all because we never felt the confidence to play. We took some rash decisions. But after fixing some problems, showing them some clips at half-time and talking a little about different positions, offensive and defensive and trying to help the team to perform better. Also a bit lucky because it was a massive confidence boost when Sonny score made the team play much better."

Tottenham don't play Dortmund again until March 5th, and they face three crucial Premier League games before then against Burnley, Chelsea and Arsenal.

And if they play like they did in the second-half last night, they have every chance of winning all of those games.
