Pochettino crying live on air absolutely beautiful what a moment. pic.twitter.com/xe6TkY2tP2— Damien Hendry (@FluorescentDamo) May 8, 2019
No wonder his emotions have short circuited. Pochettino has got us into the Champions League final – using a squad that’s been left to fester over two transfer windows. A squad riddled with injuries and players who had previously knocked on his door and asked to leave.
The gaffer told BT Sport: I want to remember my family, it is for them too. For all the people that support, who has passed, in that moment it is amazing to reward them. Thank you. We need to be ready now for the next game Saturday and then for the final.
Lucas Moura is routinely ineffectual and occasionally brilliant. The little Brazilian will be able to dine out on this hat-trick for some time to come. Poch called him a superhero – and rightly so.
Will Spurs be able to beat Liverpool?
That’s far too weighty a question for tonight.
