Mauricio Pochettino has said that Tottenham Hotspur respect the decision of the referee after two of their players were sent off.
He told Sky Sports: “There’s not too much to talk about. It’s time to move on and prepare for the next game on Wednesday. Everyone saw what happened on the pitch. In the first 40 minutes, we were playing so well, I think we created a lot of big chances. We didn’t score and sometimes football is like this, it’s cruel and then we conceded in the last minute.”
“There were two red cards, which is very difficult for the team. We fought and made the effort but there is nothing to say other than we’re disappointed. We respect the decision of the referee [for Son’s sending off] and we move on. Now, my opinion is not too important but my honest opinion is that it is about accepting the decision of the referee. You know you cannot change what happened before now.”
“Again, I didn’t see it [Foyth’s red card], but they need to respect the game and the decision of the referee. I can say absolutely nothing but respect that.
“The effort was massive and with nine players, I thought we defended well. I think we made a very good game, but it was not enough because in the very last minute, we conceded.
“I don’t believe there is going to be a big impact [for the Ajax game]. Now we go into recovery and try to be ready for Wednesday. We are third, we are competing for the top four, we are in the semi-finals of the Champions League. I am going to feel proud about the season and what will happen, will happen.”
