Pochettino insists Spurs will not collapse again in bid for Champions League return

Date Posted,March 31, 2017

Mauricio Pochettino says his battled-hardened Spurs team will not collapse again in their bid to return to the Champions League.

The Argentine whose title-chasers were pipped for second by Arsenal last year, said: “We thought too much about the summer, the Euros, everything else and we lost a little bit of focus. Now the focus is to keep fighting.”

Spurs go to Burnley on Saturday 10 points behind leaders Chelsea and two points ahead of third-placed Manchester City.

Last season Pochettino’s men picked up just two points from their final four games of the campaign.

They were held by West Brom and Chelsea, beaten at home by Southampton and crushed away to already-relegated Newcastle in their final four games of last season.

But Pochettino maintains he has toughened up his young side and that they are now no longer a soft touch.
