Mauricio Pochettino reacts to Tottenham supporters’ unhappy reaction to his decision to take off Lucas Moura during Spurs’ 2-1 victory over PSV Eindhoven at Wembley Stadium.

The victory keeps Spurs’ faint hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages alive, with matches against Inter Milan and Barcelona still to play.

Pochettino says he is still confident they can reach the knockout phase despite their poor start.

“Two games to play, if we are capable of beating Inter Milan we are going to be with them on seven points with one game to play,” said Pochettino.

“In one game anything can happen. We will see if Barcelona have qualified for the next stage and we are going to go to Barcelona trying to win the game.

“The belief is still there, you know me, I am so optimistic.

“Now is to be focused on Saturday but talking about Champions League is about being focused on Inter Milan.

“I think we were so close to winning the game and deserved more in Milan (a 2-1 defeat), we played better than them.

“I think we can beat them and I am so optimistic. If we are capable of beating them, the percentage to be in the next stage will be high.”

    Poch is great the way he maintains his relationship with supporters who turn out to will Spurs on. He understood why some booed last night—Lucas Moura had had a wonderful night of inspiring play—during one substitution as Lamela came on, yet Poch’s substitutions proved just as inspired as different tactics came into operation. He says he’d have booed, too, if he were them, but makes light of it and smiles it off in that intelligent and mature way of his that has Spurs supporters loving what he and the players bring to the club.
