Mauricio Pochettino held talks with team after 7-2 Bayern Munich loss

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino held a meeting with the players after the 7-2 defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich.

The Champions League clash started brightly for us as Son Heung-min opened the scoring, but Bayern hit us for seven with Serge Gnabry bagging four goals in the second half.

Pochettino called up the team for talks at training yesterday, according to the Sun, and a source claimed that the Argentine was calm:

“It was calm and no tea cups were thrown. The gaffer said he was happy with the first 45 minutes — and wanted us to remember that going forward.”

The source added that Pochettino wasn’t happy with the team conceding three goals in the final seven minutes. However, the manager believed this was a freak result and didn’t want the team to think about it too much.

Pochettino is right in suggesting that we take some positives from the clash. We were more than a match for Bayern in the opening 30 minutes but lost our way once Robert Lewandowski scored his first before half-time.

Bayern were ruthless in the attack

The Bavarians might have scored seven but they were ruthless with their finishing, with almost every shot on target beating Hugo Lloris.

Tottenham could have scored three goals in the opening 30 minutes, but we didn’t take our chances. Our attack was decent, but the problem was with the defence. We were opened up too easily at times, and that is something Pochettino has to work on.
