Following Tottenham’s defeat in last night’s match with Borussia Dortmund, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has explained how this now brings so much more importance to the game against Aston Villa.
“It was a bad day, we are very disappointed. Sometimes this happens in football, they were better,” Pochettino commented.
“We turn our attentions to Villa now & it’s a very big game for us. We need to show we deserve to stay where we are in the table”
“It is difficult to explain but it’s a bad day and I’m disappointed with our performance. We did not play well. That is why we lost the game.”
“We need to fight in the return leg next week. Three-nil is not a good result for us but we still need to keep working hard and try next Thursday.”
“This was our first time losing 3-0 this season. We need to be calm and be sure it doesn’t happen again.”
