Mauricio Pochettino has feels winning trophies only serves to erect ego for tottenham and does not think securing one will routinely take Tottenham to the next level.
The back to back losses will give Spurs’ detractors more bullets, but mauricio pochettino the Argentine is not losing center on Spurs’ main aim and does not agree a trophy will automatically take them to the next height.
“Again we’re going to have the debate whether a trophy will take the club to the next level. I don’t agree with it. It only builds your ego. The most important thing for Tottenham right now is to always be in the top four.”
He added: “It’s true, this season has been tough. I told you it would be a massive challenge for us, but we believe it’ll be a tough season but no tougher than it’s been.
“Of course, dissatisfied because, after Thursday and today again, out of two tournament. You feel disappointed. You can’t feel anything different.
“But now we have to be optimistic. We are still in two competitions, in a good position in the Premier League and the Champions League is a massive motivation for the whole club. We have to be strong.
“People wish we could win some trophies. But being realistic, we are doing so well. To win a title here in England like the FA Cup or Carabao Cup is about being lucky, not only about quality in your squad.
mauricio pochettino is here in diverse condition, so you can fight or be stronger… Of course, it’s tougher to try to win when things happened as they did.
every now and then when you assess football, you only look at which team won the match and which team lost, but you have to consider all the situation.
Now the pragmatic targets are trying to be in the top four, try and be close to Manchester City and Liverpool and reduce the points.
To be a contender is always hard for us. Top four is realistic. Another is to try and beat Borussia Dortmund in the champions league and be in the next round. That is tough.”
I think we came from a very crazy fixture and were forced to take some decisions, rest some players and rotate. But we are going to play Wednesday too and Saturday.”
