Mauricio Pochettino says Spurs deserve to be criticised


Tottenham Hotspur deserve to be criticised for a lacklustre start to the season which should serve as a wake-up call, manager Mauricio Pochettino said on Thursday.

Spurs head into the tie 7 in the Premier League table after winning two, drawing two and losing two in the league this campaign.

Pochettino saw his side slump to a shock shootout loss to League Two side Colchester which led to their elimination from the Carabao Cup on Tuesday. "It's down to us players to take responsibility", Kane told Sky Sports ahead of Spurs' league clash with Southampton on Saturday. "If we beat Leicester, where we deserved to win".

As for Southampton, they are now 13 in the PL table, one point below Spurs.

"We've put ourselves in good positions this season". [People would say], "Wow - what quality players and an incredible coaching staff and manager, we are performing in the best way and winning games". That is the problem when something happens that you can not control.

Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen and Belgium central defensive pair Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen are in the final year of their contracts, while England left-back Danny Rose and Kenya midfielder Victor Wanyama both expected to leave during the summer transfer window.

"You ask me, and I give you an answer".

The Argentine said: "When you have an unsettled squad always it's hard and you lose time and then you need time to recover the time you lose".

"Because you are so clever you ask me, you make me talk and after you use my words and my speech".

"We are, at the moment, fixing problems to try to be better and get the results we expect". Our performances are not as bad as the feeling creates. Damage has happened that we need to fix. "We are trying to find the solution".

The club's sparkling new stadium opened in April and Pochettino has been able to add to his squad for the first time in 18 months with the signings of Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon.
