Champions League: What Pochettino said after Tottenham’s 7 – 2 defeat to Bayern

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino says his team will remain steadfast in their minds after they were defeated 7-2 by a clinical Bayern Munich on Tuesday night.

The visiting German giants annihilated the Spurs in London and finally left with three points on the second day of this season’s UEFA Champions League.

Serge Gnabry made Tottenham look silly while scoring four goals at night.

Robert Lewandowski entered the act, scoring two goals, with Joshua Kimmich getting Bayern’s first game.

They are Heung-Min, and Harry Kane scored for the hosts, but Pochettino was lamenting the quality of his opposition after the game.

He told BT Sport: “I don’t need much time to explain it. We played 30 minutes well, we started well, pressing high. But we had terrible luck having conceded in the first minute of the half.

“They were very clinical. After scoring the penalty for two, we had the opportunity to score the third. But from minute 83 and 88, we conceded three more goals.

“In football, it can happen. Each touch entered. We are very disappointed and distraught, but we have to stay together. I think we are active in our mentality.

“Maybe you get bored with my speech, but football today was not yesterday. It’s always about the show. You have to do it today and tomorrow. It’s not about experiences and what happened three months ago.

“We are disappointed. Every touch of Bayern was clinical. They scored with every bit. It is hard to accept. You have to go ahead.

“This type of situation you have to face. It is difficult, and you need to be healthy and move on. Stay together, help each other, and be all together. When you receive this type of result, it is essential to recover and believe in yourself. It’s the only way to improve. “
