Latest Spurs news: Mauricio Pochettino shares positive message after Champions League final loss

Mauricio Pochettino wanted everyone associated with Tottenham to feel proud despite losing the Champions League final.

Liverpool picked up their sixth Champions League trophy thanks to goals from Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi, however, Spurs played their part in the final.

Son Heung-min, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen had great chances to score but Alisson was in defiant mood as he kept Liverpool’s clean sheet intact.

Origi’s goal came in the 87th minute while Salah scored in the first minute after a penalty was awarded.

Nevertheless, Pochettino was disappointed with the result but was proud of the team (h/t Tottenhamhotspur.com):

“Now it’s impossible to talk. We are all very disappointed. The season was fantastic. We need to feel proud. I feel so proud of all the players, the fans and the Club.”

The manager also spoke about us dominating the possession and having more chances than Liverpool but not doing enough:

“It was a final and we’ve spoke in the past that a final is to win, not just to play well. It’s about the details. It’s not about to deserve or to play well, it’s to win, because nobody is going to remember that we maybe deserved a little bit more.”

Spurs had a great season despite no silverware

Pochettino wanted to highlight the fact that the season was great for Spurs as we finished in the top four.

The team worked their socks off to reach the final and balance their Premier League campaign despite not having new additions in the transfer windows.

Most of our players have picked up injuries throughout the season and several came back tired from the World Cup.

Pochettino has worked wonders with the current group of players and hopefully, he is backed by the board in the summer.
