Pochettino in the mood for revenge


Mauricio Pochettino has warned his players their mentality must be right if they are to overturn a three-goal deficit in Thursday's Europa League last-15 second leg.

Borussia Dortmund were comfortable 3-0 winners at Signal Iduna Park last week to leave Tottenham with a mountain to climb in the second leg at White Hart Lane.

Pochettino was criticised for fielding a weaker team in the first leg and, while he is happy to take the blame, the Argentine has urged his players to respond and prove they are worthy of a place in the quarter-finals.

"Our mentality needs to be right. We need to show that last Thursday was an accident," Pochettino told his pre-match press conference.

"For me sometimes it is difficult, but I accept the criticism. If you win you are a genius, if not you are a disaster.

"It's important to keep everyone motivated. They are all important for me and I believe in all of them. Sometimes we rotate and sometimes maybe I have made mistakes. We analyse our decisions a lot and I always think we can do better.

"For that we are always open to learning but I believe in all the players, all the squad."
