Mauricio Pochettino was visibly angry with referee Mike Dean and his assistants after his side’s loss against Burnley.
Tottenham Hotspur were defeated by the Clarets by 2-1.
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has been angry about the decisions made by referee Mike Dean and his assistants that led to his side’s loss against Burnley in their last match in the Premier League. This also comes as a big blow for Spurs in the title race as they could have gone two points within Liverpool if they would have won their contest against the Clarets.
The Argentine gaffer had started a rant towards the referee and his assistants after the match for allowing a corner which led to the first goal for Burnley. Speaking after the match, however, the Spurs manager avoided commenting on the row and rather spoke about his side’s lack of character that made him lose his cool. He said, “If we didn’t win, we cannot think now of being a real contender. It is a massive opportunity lost for us.”
He added, “When you feel so disappointed and upset, you make some mistakes. We made some mistakes on the pitch and I made some mistakes afterwards on the pitch. There were crossed cables inside my brain. It was weird and strange and has not happened before in 10 years. Some stupid things happen and you react. I was never out of control but now I need to find the result.”
