Mauricio Pochettino reveals why he is relaxed about Spurs’ poor run

Tottenham are arguably in their poorest run of form since Mauricio Pochettino took over in North London five years ago. 

The team’s poor away record from the second half of last season has continued into this season with his side yet to win a competitive game away from home since January.

Fans were hoping that the Carabao Cup game against Colchester United would be an opportunity for the team to arrest their slide and get back to winning ways.

However, the Lilywhites failed to break down the League To outfit and were eventually knocked out on penalties.

Pochettino has now insisted that he is relaxed about the team’s current form as he has experienced tougher times at the club, particularly in his first season at the helm.

The Argentine also explained how some of the games were determined by fine margins and claimed that the performance from the team hasn’t been lacking.

When asked if this was his toughest moment at the football club, Pochettino told Football.London: “No. The most difficult was the first season. And the last few seasons were tough in some period. I am so relaxed. I become more relaxed in these tough moments because in the end it’s only one result.

“Rather than losing the game against Leicester, which we deserved to win, three points more and we’re third and everyone is talking about fantastic season, performance, and wow – quality coaching staff and manager because with all the circumstances again we are performing in the best way and winning games.

“It’s only one game. Offside, 2-0 and the game over and we concede! The line is so thin. It can be one or another. In football it happens, you don’t get the luck you deserve. For us, it’s never give us, keep working hard. We are so confident because we have the quality to perform better and get the best results we can.”

I certainly agree with the manager’s take on the performance against Leicester as I felt Tottenham were unlucky to end up losing that game.

While the performances haven’t been too bad, the longer this run without a win goes on, the more the player’s confidence will take a hit.

It is vitally important that we turn things around against Southampton this weekend.
