Alderweireld and Trippier left out of Tottenham squad for 'technical reasons'

Mauricio Pochettino Manager of Tottenham Hotspur speaks to the media during the Tottenham Hotspur press conference at San Siro Stadium

If you ask the cow what time is the train he won't have the answer. In football it's the same.

"If you show the same hunger, same motivation, if you fight in the right way, there are many things that can keep you in the same way as the experience".

"Maybe tactical also on the pitch, yes, it's tactical too but it's a technical decision".

Lloris' absence on Saturday really stuck out as stand-in stopper Michel Vorm made key errors leading to goals. You can look it up in the dictionary. Lose your hunger, lose your own motivation, lose being clever and learning. experience, if you're not clever, experience on it's own is not going to help you in the future.

And Pochettino channelled his inner-Eric Cantona by using a weird cow analogy to warn his Spurs players that they must learn from their mistakes or forget about putting themselves in contention for any silverware this season. "There's nothing in behind it". We came from hard circumstances with the World Cup.

Kane's performances have also drawn criticism, with several British media outlets speculating that the England striker is showing signs of fatigue after the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Spurs face Inter Milan on Tuesday evening on the back of successive defeats to Watford and Liverpool which have knocked confidence following a big win at Manchester United. "The reason is not exhausted or not exhausted, can rest or not rest".

Pochettino also described striker Harry Kane as an "easy target" for criticism after he appeared to struggle against Liverpool.

"Every single fan in the last four years, every single person, every single team-mate of Harry needs to say thank you because when you see in the last four years what he has provided for the team".

Spurs have been drawn in a tough Champions League Group B, which also includes Barcelona and PSV Eindhoven.
