Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino unfazed by recent criticism
Tottenham manager won't change his 'clear philosophy'
Mauricio Pochettino says he isn’t fazed by recent criticism of the Tottenham Hotspur.
Spurs have made a mixed start to the season after managing to win just four of their 10 Premier League games.
We have a clear way, a clear philosophy
However, Pochettino, who was named as Tim Sherwood’s successor in May, is adamant that he won’t change his philosophy.
“It’s a good thing to be criticised for a manager,” Pochettino said. “All managers in the world are criticised.
“Sometimes it’s difficult to have all people agreeing with you and to make everyone happy – we are all referees, we are all managers, we are all journalists, sometimes.
“It’s my job. I am calm, I know what my way is, how we need to manage our players and our squad. We have a clear way, a clear philosophy.”
Pochettino added that Tottenham can’t underestimate Asteras Tripolis in the Europa League on Thursday night.
Every game is different, a different moment,” Pochettino told ESPN. “We know Asteras at home is a difficult team, a strong team.
“Their supporters are brave and we expect a very, very difficult game. Different, sure, to what we played in London. It will be a very important game for Asteras Tripolis, but don’t forget we also want the three points.”
