Pochettino: Tottenham too 'nice' in Champions League loss to Juventus

Sometimes the most telling comments can come in the most inconspicuous way.

'Before game Agnelli, after the game Agnelli and Marotta.

"They were complaining about the penalty in the first half [when Jan Vertonghen appeared to foul Douglas Costa], of course".

The Lilywhites will also hope that Crystal Palace can turn their form around and defeat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

As an example, he had cited the presence of Juve president Andrea Agnelli and general manager Giuseppe Marotta in the tunnel during Spurs' 2-1 defeat at Wembley on Wednesday. Many fouls that weren't fouls, many times they started the game with the ball moving, players inside the box on goal kicks - you need to take it again.

If Spurs can overcome the Swans, they are just two games away from FA Cup glory.

"It's a massive opportunity to learn not only on the pitch but outside".

Pochettino's men could move into third in the Premier League this weekend, if they beat Bournemouth and Manchester United pick up three points against Liverpool. 'One on the pitch, one is outside of the pitch.

Despite their exit, Tottenham's performance in the competition has improved significantly since last season, when they were eliminated in the group stage.

"With experience you have more possibilities to achieve all that you want". In different moments during the game, they can use that. "I still love Arsenal, I love the people and I wish them the best but to judge the situation is not appropriate".

"With the new facilities, the new stadium, the club will be stronger". Now it's to keep going and try to be clever and work hard. They are with you on the field.

Mauricio Pochettino has described Juventus as "specialists" in football's dark arts and a club that has "the habit to put pressure on the referee".

'I'm not saying that [Spurs chairman] Daniel [Levy] needs to be there only that Juventus was a massive lesson in how to behave.

Since the turn of the new year, they've been excellent, showing commitment and enterprise along with a clinical nose for goal.

Son Heung-min opened the scoring to put Spurs ahead going into half-time, but second half strikes from Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala saw Juventus advance to the Champions League quarter finals.

The side from the south coast have lost only four games at home this term - all of which came against top seven opponents - and three have been by just a single goal margin.
