Mauricio Pochettino comments on Tottenham’s end of season failure

Mauricio Pochettino discusses Tottenham's season after they ended up third in the table

Mauricio Pochettino has insisted that his young Tottenham team will learn from the experience of their disappointing end to the season.

The Lilywhites had challenged for the Premier League title for much of the campaign and were competing strongly with Leicester in the race for the trophy.

However, the north London side ended up conceding the title to the Foxes when they squandered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Their end of season form then took a dip and resulted in them dropping down into third place in the table, allowing their bitter local rivals Arsenal to pip them to a second-placed finish on the final day of the campaign.

Pochettino’s side earned plenty of new admirers throughout the campaign for their exciting brand of football.

And the Spurs head coach is confident that his players will take plenty of positives from the season, despite its disappointing conclusion.

He is quoted as saying by ADSLZONE: “I think we are brave and risky. A team is a reflection of its coaching staff, I think that goes with my character. It’s something I learned many years ago under Marcelo Bielsa.

“We are the youngest team in the Premier League. This experience will serve us well. Playing well is not easy, but we failed. We lacked competition in those key moments that make champions.

“Leicester competed better. With a philosophy contrary to ours but equally valid. I congratulate them.
