Tottenham Hotspur drew 2-2 at Olympiacos on Wednesday evening.
Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has told The Guardian that he wants to make training harder after the 2-2 draw with Olympiacos.
Spurs travelled over to Greece on Wednesday evening for their first game of the Champions League group stage, with the aim of going one better than last year’s runner-up finish.
It all started so well for Pochettino’s side, as Harry Kane opened the scoring from the penalty spot, having been brought down inside the penalty area.
Lucas Moura smashed home a second, but Spurs were pegged back as Daniel Podence and Mathieu Valbuena rescued a point for Olympiacos.
It’s the second time this in a matter of weeks that Spurs have been 2-0 up and thrown it away to only claim a point, and that’s of major concern to Pochettino.
The Argentinian will be particularly frustrated as Saturday’s 4-0 win over Crystal Palace looked like Spurs had finally got their best form back, but the same old issues appeared once again last night.
Now, Pochettino has suggested that he wants training to be ‘psychologically harder’, believing he needs to be more demanding of his players because they’re giving up too many chances and too many goals.
“It is not possible how we started tonight and it is a massive difference to Saturday. It’s a massive disappointment. We can talk about scoring twice and playing better second half, but this season we are conceding a lot of chances and a lot of goals. We need to change that. The only way is to be more demanding. Training needs to be harder. Psychologically harder,” he added.
