Mauricio Pochettino Says He’s “Ashamed” of Spurs’ Display v Bayer Leverkusen

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino couldn’t hide his disgust at his side’s display against Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday night, and even insisted he was “ashamed” of the performance.

Spurs’ place in the Champions League is now under serious threat after Kevin Kampl’s second-half winner for the Bundesliga side condemned their north London hosts to a 1-0 defeat.

Tottenham rallied, and Dele Alli thought he should have been awarded a penalty, but the Premier League side were well below the high standards that have been set during Pochettino’s time in charge – and the Argentine wasn’t holding back during his post-match press conference:

A fairly damning assessment, eh?

Spurs now go into the north London derby against bitter rivals Arsenal at the weekend without a win in their last six games in all competitions.

Where would a defeat against the Gunners leave Pochettino’s team and their ambitions for the campaign?
