‘Proud’ Pochettino hints he could stay at Spurs after final defeat

first_imgPochettino made the decision to start Harry Kane, despite the striker not playing a match in almost two months.Kane had just recovered from an ankle injury and struggled for chances against a resilient Liverpool defence.“It’s not about playing with Harry Kane or Lucas Moura,” Pochettino said.“We had to make a decision and of course for me, Harry Kane after one month and a half finished the game fresh.“He didn’t score like other players but it’s not a point to talk about too much. My decision I promise was about analytics and thinking with all the information.  I don’t regret my decision.”Spurs were never at their best during a subdued match at the Wanda Metropolitano, forced to chase the game after Moussa Sissoko conceded a penalty after 23 seconds.“You never believe that after one minute you’re going to be 1-0 down, a situation that not only changed our plans, it changed the dynamic (of the game),” Pochettino said.“I’m very proud with the effort, how we fought. We played so well, we played so well in the second half. I feel so proud, there is nothing else to say.”Share on: WhatsApp Tottenham’s coach Mauricio Pochettino is tight lipped on his future at the club.Madrid, Spain | AFP |  Mauricio Pochettino kept tight-lipped about his future as Tottenham Hotspur coach after his side lost the Champions League final to Liverpool on Saturday.The Argentine has been linked with a move to Italian champions Juventus and German giants Bayern Munich but suggested he may stay to try to guide Spurs to another final after their 2-0 defeat in Madrid.“When you live this experience you want to do it again. I hope we can do it again in the future,” Pochettino told BT Sport.“It’s about trying, it’s about believing, it’s about building, and I hope it happens again as soon as possible.”Spurs fell behind to a Mohamed Salah penalty almost straight after kick-off but were the better side after the break, before Divock Origi arrowed in a second late on.Pochettino has said he wants clarity on Tottenham’s ambitions before the start of next season and said on Saturday he would be holding talks with the club.“Now is the time to stay calm, change the mood, for sure we are going to have time to talk,” said Pochettino.“It is not a moment now to talk too much. You can interpret things in different ways. People want to compare me with different managers but they don’t know that we are in a different project in a different position and different place.“In five years at Tottenham the project was so clear, our ambition was amazing, and the commitment from the players was amazing — the club played their first Champions League final.”last_img read more

Hopefully, there will be two or three speed horses in there that will make it easy for me. I think he’ll be tough.”If Wild Dude finishes first or second in the Kona Gold, he would become a millionaire. With a 7-5-4 record from 21 starts, he has earned $975,232 to date. First money is worth $120,000, second, $40,000. Wild Dude worked five furlongs on Santa Anita’s fast main track Sunday with Bejarano up in 1:01 flat.Also working Sunday for the Kona Gold were Cherubim under Tiago Pereira and Coastline, both for Phil D’Amato, off to a flying start this meet with six wins from 20 starters to lead all trainers through seven racing days.Cherubim worked five furlongs in a bullet 58.60, fastest of 62 drills at the distance, while Coastline went the same distance in 59.80.Probable for the Kona Gold: Cherubim, Tiago Pereira; Coastline, Tyler Baze; Dream Saturday, Mike Smith; Kafister, Flavien Prat; San Onofre, Edwin Maldonado; and Wild Dude, Rafael Bejarano.

All three horses train out of Santa Anita.Both Sherlock and Uncle Lino leave Tuesday for Maryland, a state in which Sherlock has never raced in a career that began in 1966.Sherlock was waiting for all the chips to fall into place before speaking extensively on Uncle Lino’s chances in the Preakness.“The draw is important,” Sherlock said on an overcast Sunday morning at Clockers’ Corner. “Where my horse is depends on the draw and who’s in the race,” Sherlock said.“Unless Nyquist can’t come back in 13 days, he’s going to be tough to beat. I’m hoping Uncle Lino moves forward and that coming back in two weeks takes its toll on the others (that ran in the Kentucky Derby on May 7).“If we draw inside, we’re just going to go. It’s all about the draw now.”Post positions for the 141st Preakness will be drawn on Wednesday.First live race post time at Santa Anita on Preakness Day is 12 noon.

first_imgBengaluru: Called a legend by his Mumbai Indians teammate Krunal Pandya, India pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah says he backs himself to deliver no matter what the situation is and always focusses on his strengths.

All-rounder Krunal Pandya was gushing in his praise for the bowler, who is ranked No.1 in the ICC world rankings. “It was a great game. We were in-out throughout the second innings. The way Bumrah bowled, he is a legend. The way he’s giving consistent performances whether he is playing for India or Mumbai Indians; he is outstanding,” he said. Pandya also lauded his brother, Hardik Pandya for the 14-ball unbeaten 32 on Thursday. “Whatever I have seen of Hardik this year, he’s striking the ball very well.
