Spurs boss Pochettino: Only way to stop criticism is by winning

Tottenham boss, Mauricio Pochettino, met the media today ahead of Spurs’ Saturday evening trip to Brighton.

Pochettino was asked about Tottenham’s faltering form of late. Spurs had started the season with three league wins on the trot. However, starting with their 2-1 defeat at Watford, Spurs have now suffered three defeats in a row.

“The only way we can stop that (criticism) is winning games and if we don’t win everyone is going to criticise more than now,” Pochettino told the press ahead of his side’s trip to the South Coast.

Pochettino made it clear, at least to the public view, that he holds himself primarily accountable for his team’s performances on the pitch.

“And you know what is going to happen when we don’t win games, the first [person] responsible is me. I am so relaxed. In football, something happens, the situation is that I am going to give my best until the end.” He added.

“I am going to stick with the club, I am not going to criticise the club.”

“All the decisions are our decisions and of course we are always with the club until the end, maybe still here in five years or maybe in one week we are not here, but I will always talk well about the club and help them to achieve all they want.”
