Tottenham’s Mauricio Pochettino ready for ‘biggest challenge’

Mauricio Pochettino prepares for a big week for Tottenham Hotspur

By Dipak Patel

Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that he is facing the biggest challenge of his career over the next couple of weeks.

Tottenham Hotspur are currently seventh in the table but remain only three points off the final Champions League spot.

They also have a League Cup final against Chelsea next Sunday, as well as Europa League commitments, and Pochettino knows that balancing all these will prove to be difficult, but he refuses to shy away from the task.

“Yes, maybe (this is the biggest challenge I have faced as a manager),” Pochettino is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

“I think that it is a good challenge for us, for me personally, but I feel good. I am prepared to enjoy these moments.

“We have ahead a lot of very tough games and one final. I think it is good for the club, good for our supporters and for our players, too.”

However, the Argentine insists that enjoying your football is the most important thing and if his players do that, than positive results will follow.

Pochettino added: “But I don’t think too much. It is only to enjoy moment and try to prepare them in the best way for their next game.

“Always in football, you need to enjoy. If not, it is difficult to give your best. Football is emotion – you need to be in your best condition to play in your best level.”

Tottenham have a busy schedule ahead and play four games in ten days, starting with an away trip to Fiorentina in the Europa League on Thursday.
