Mauricio Pochettino has suggested the criticism Tottenham have received since losing to Arsenal shows the club is progressing.
The Spurs boss was speaking to reporters ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League trip to Dortmund when he was asked about the response to Saturday’s defeat.
“I am happy with the pressure and criticism. It means people expect more of us. People consider us at this level,” Pochettino said. (Quotes via Football.London.)
“We are so calm and we know very well we have improved a lot in every single aspect. Every club in the top six has trouble to compete away from home.
“If you look on the internet to see what happened with the other clubs you will be surprised because we are better than others away from home.”
He added: “We are so happy if we analyse the last three seasons with how the clubs is improving. Now the expectation is to win the Champions League and the Premier League. Our project is medium/long term is to buy the best players and try to win.”
