What Mauricio Pochettino Said After Chelsea Defeated Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino, says he would prefer to lose on penalties than in the game.

Naija News reports that Pochettino made this comment after Chelsea Football club defeated Tottenham Hotspur 4-2 on penalties at Stamford Bridge in the Carabao Cup semifinal on Thursday night to set up a clash with holders Manchester City in the final.

Speaking after the match, Pochettino congratulated Chelsea, saying his team will keep going in the FA Cup game against Crystal Palace.

His words: “We won at Wembley. They beat us here. I’d prefer to lose on penalties [than in the game]. Congratulations to Chelsea. We’ll keep going in the FA Cup game against Crystal Palace.

“In the second half, we played so well and dominated and had chances. Over 180 minutes it was 2-2. Chelsea would have been disappointed at Wembley. That’s football.

“We changed in the second half. I think we started to dominate. In the first half, before we conceded the first goal, we played well and had control. That’s football. When you have Hazard, Pedro, Giroud, Kante, they can score.

“The team was so good. I feel so proud. I’m so happy with the performance and the way we fought. After two amazing games I praise my players,” the Tottenham boss told Sky Sports.
