Mauricio Pochettino has claimed that the first 30 minutes against Bayern Munich was his 'best moment' managing Tottenham Hotspur this season. 

After 30 minutes, Spurs were level with the German club, but things unravelled pretty quickly as Serge Gnabry ran riot on the Premier League club during the second half.

When Heung-Min Son opened the scoring after 12 minutes, many were expecting both teams to partake in a close contest, but that wasn't to be as soon as Lewandowski found the back of the net in a brilliant fashion on the stroke of half-time.

 

After the game, Pochettino shared how he went from thinking his team were producing their best to then absolutely capitulating in front of their own fans. 

“To be honest after the first 30 minutes it was my best moment managing the team this season,” Pochettino told Football London. “That is so difficult to accept that the second half changed things.”

It was a game and a night to well and truly forget for those in Tottenham colours because nothing is going right for the North London outfit.

It seems as though all that off-field talk over the summer has played its part in Spurs producing a number of indifferent performances, and now a complete and utter horror show against Bayern. 

And it was no doubt made even worse when former Arsenal player Serge Gnabry scored four of Bayern's seven goals.
