Mauricio Pochettino Admits Spurs Don't Have Title Winning Mentality

Tottenham Chelsea

"You need to look like a team that are fighting for big things and I am so frustrated because we didn't show more attitude, energy and ambition than Burnley". "I wanted to see him tomorrow and apologise". My behaviour was public and I want to apologise publicly. "All that happened on the pitch, I'll never translate off it". I think I'm a very smart person who can not repeat the same mistake. We're disappointed because in a few days, two defeats is hard to accept. "I'm going to support all the possibilities that can make us play before the end of the season - of course I'm going to support the situations yes!" I didn't want to justify the defeat and complain with the referee.

Pochettino appeared to react to something that Dean said after an initial altercation, turning back to continue the spat, but he refused to divulge what was said.

"I think today the way that he fought and ran and was on the pitch I think it was a ideal level, physically and mentally", the manager said.

"It's not important, I don't take it personally".

"When your heart rate is so high, you have to be careful when talking".




Dean was due to be the fourth official for Spurs' next fixture at Chelsea on Wednesday, but he has been removed due to Saturday's incident. "I need to apologise to him and all the officials". "In my mind I still believe I'm right but in the way that I behaved, it's not right".

"For me, he is one of the best referees".

"To be a real contender in this type of game, playing well or not playing well, it is a must-win game".

Twice in the first half Pochettino told his backroom staff to calm down and stay seated after Tottenham were not awarded a free kick, particularly when Son Heung-min was brought down by N'Golo Kanté.

Spurs have escaped recently as they showed resilience to win late against Watford and Newcastle United, and survive a scare against Leicester City. If you're not capable of beating Burnley when you are going for the title, then it's impossible to think that you are going to win the title'.
