Mauricio Pochettino wasn’t upset with the fans when they booed the Tottenham manager during our 2-1 win over PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday.

The incident took place in the second half when Pochettino replaced Lucas Moura, but in the end the substitutes worked as Spurs eked out an important win.

Speaking to the media after the game, the Spurs manager was quoted by ESPN as saying:

“I understand [the boos],

“I like it because after nearly five years I think it’s the first time that they’ve been critical of me and didn’t agree with me — but in the end, 2-1.

“It’s always difficult to take decisions. Of course the fans are disappointed. They want to play with nine or 10 strikers when you’re losing the game.”

The Argentine added that his moves worked well as Fernando Llorente came off the bench, and helped Kane score the crucial goals.

The manager thanked the fans for coming to Wembley and wasn’t going to criticise them for their reaction to the substitutions.

Even with the win, Tottenham have a mountain to climb in the Champions League. Spurs have to beat Inter Milan in their next game to go level on points with the Italian giants.

Our last game is against Barcelona at the Nou Camp, and that won’t be easy either. However, Pochettino was optimistic of the team’s chances and there was belief Tottenham could make it into the next round.
