Tottenham Hotspur are currently enjoying their best ever start to a Premier League season, but despite that, manager Mauricio Pochettino has said that he feels that is his worst.
Spurs go into tonight’s game with Man City just outside of the top four having won seven of their opening nine games. Victory at Wembley this evening would in fact push them up to third in the table, ahead of the reigning Premier League champions.
However, despite their impressive start to the campaign, Poch isn’t feeling it.
“The season so far… it’s strange because my feeling is the worst feeling I’ve had in the five years that I’ve been here,” he told his press-conference ahead of tonight’s game.
“It’s the worst, my feeling. But it’s the best start ever for the club in the Premier League. It’s strange, no?”
Of course, it hasn’t all been good news for the North London club. In fact, the game against City was supposed to be played on Sunday at their new stadium, but delays in the building project combined with pre-arranged NFL matches have meant that it had to be postponed by just over 24 hours.
They were also the first club in Premier League history not to make a single signing during the summer transfer, leaving the Argentine to admit that he is ‘disappointed’ and not in a good mood.
“It’s so difficult to explain because many things happen,” he added.
“I am disappointed we are still waiting for the new stadium when the expectation was to be there at the beginning of the season.
“I don’t know, many things happened in the summer, many things that make myself not in my best mood or best humour.
“I know I always have a good relationship with the media but my feeling is not the best feeling — I had better feelings in previous seasons.”
