The Tottenham boss says this past weekend’s defeat shows that his side doesn’t have the mindset to challenge just yet
Mauricio Pochettino says it could take between five and 10 years for Tottenham to develop the mentality to legitimately push for the Premier League title.
Spurs fell 2-1 to Burnley over the weekend and now sit six points behind league-leaders Liverpool and five points behind Manchester City.
After the loss, Pochettino admitted that the defeat likely ended the club’s title hopes this season.
And now the manager says that it could take an even longer time to develop the mental strength to truly compete with the elite.
“If you want to be a real contender, playing well or not, it’s (the game against Burnley) a must-win,” Pochettino said.
“You need to show you are fighting for big things and I am frustrated because we didn’t show the same energy as Burnley, the same attitude as Burnley, the same ambition as Burnley.
“We have to look at ourselves and maybe assess ourselves in different ways – we are not looking for excuses.
“It is holding us back and it might take five years’ work, 10 years’ work to change that.”
Tottenham is set to face Chelsea on Wednesday as the Blues look to rebound from Sunday’s Carabao Cup final loss to Manchester City, a match headlined by Kepa Arrizabalaga’s refusal to come out in extra time.
Chelsea are sure to be extra motivated for the match, and Pochettino insists that his side will also bring the right mentality to Wednesday’s clash.
Pictures of some ladies from Ekiti state in Nigeria have gone viral.
The ladies were spotted in a pool of rain water that flooded their community.
The ladies were making the most of the puddle as they were dressed in their bathing suits and were swimming and playing.
The ladies took advantage of the flood instead of going to pay so much money at a swimming pool ‘which was already at their disposal’.
One of the ladies who couldn’t contain her excitement, appreciated the rain and claimed that they had waited long for this moment to catch fun.
