Tottenham Hotspur booked their place in the quarter finals of the Champions League last night with a 4-0 aggregate win over Borussia Dortmund.
Fans will be hoping that this European success is the perfect catalyst for improved Premier League form.
Spurs have dropped eight points in the last three League games, form that has seen then plummet from challengers to top four hopefuls.
Tottenham had the chance to close the gap to then leaders Liverpool to just two points last month, but lost to Burnley.
Pochettino was so unhappy with the refereeing that day, including the ghost corner that led to Burnley’s opener, that he confronted Mike Dean at full time.
The Argentine was seen shouting in Dean’s face, and it now seems he will get a touchline ban for his troubles.
It seems as if it may not be a return to Southampton for Pochettino in the way he would have wanted this weekend, as he may have to watch from the stands.
Pochettino hinted in his press conference last night (Football London): “I am not going to talk because it easy to pay with me and you are going to see tomorrow why I am not going to talk. I am very disappointed, I don’t think that is going to change but I don’t care, we are going to be strong. If are not going to receive a help from our football people in our country only I can laugh. You are going to see tomorrow why I am not so happy with the people.”
Football London also say the manager ‘appears to nod’ as one journalist asked if he was getting a touchline ban.
