Mauricio Pochettino believes he is still the main to take Tottenham to the next level – despite his sides disasterous start to the campaign.
Spurs have suffered 16 defeats in all competitions in 2019, more than other Premier League club and have collected just eight points from their opening six matches this term.
Pochettino’s men squandered a 2-0 lead in the North London derby earlier this month before blowing another two-goal lead against Greek side Olympiacos in the Champions League last week to draw 2-2.
Tottenham did get on back on track with a comprehensive victory over Crystal Palace at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but then lost to Leicester City in the Premier League to slip out of the top-four before their misery was compounded on Tuesday when they crashed out of the Carabao Cup on penalties to League Two outfit Colchester United, which raised questions marks over his future, with a number of senior players worryingly out of form.
“I believe I am. If I didn’t think I was, you would have found out quickly,” Pochettino said when speaking to the press ahead of Tottenham’s game against Southampton on Saturday.
Elsewhere, the Argentine spoke about fans critisising and admitted that they are within their rights.
He continued: “The fans are always right to criticise. They are the only ones who you cannot complain about. They are right to express their emotions. The fans are emotional. They keep the game alive. You cannot criticise the fans.”
