Pochettino turned down European bid last season for Tottenham star

Pochettino turned down European bid last season for Tottenham star

Five more goals in the UEFA Champions League against Borussia Dortmund (two) and APOEL Nicosia (three) took his tally to 13 goals in just eight matches last month.

Speaking after Manchester City's 1-0 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, Guardiola was asked for his views on City's title rivals.

While the England team is far from a positive entity at the moment consider this - where would we be if Mauricio Pochettino hadn't come to the Premier League? But I think many people took those words as very disrespectful for the club, and for many players that are here I think it's a odd situation.

Pochettino admits that he did not "take it in a bad way" but acknowledged that those within the club may have been hurt by Guardiola's "unnecessary" words.

"I always said it was Barcelona or Pep Guardiola".

"I know Pep, when he's excited after an incredible win he struggles to keep his position and be a gentleman".


"That is my opinion like I respect his opinion, but I don't think it will make the players more motivated or less motivated".

"When he was at Barca, I never said "the Messi team".

The comment did not go down well with Maurcio Pochettino, who retaliated by saying he did not call Guardiola's all-conquering Barcelona the "Messi team".

Plus a little video from the press conference.

We want you to tell us who and, be a good egg, don't spoil the answer for anybody else.

Eriksen is one of the best and most creative midfielders in the world, and the Denmark global will be key to Spurs' chances of picking up all three points against Bournemouth.
