Champions League final defeat, the worst moment of my career – Pochettino

Maurico Pochettino has revealed that the worst moment of his career was when his side Tottenham lost to Liverpool in the 2018/2019 UEFA Champions League final.

After the game which was played in Madrid, Pochettino stated that he couldn’t leave his house for 10 days.

The game between both English Premier League sides ended 2-0 in favour of Liverpool who had lost the previous final to Real Madrid.

“Yes, it was difficult. We had the most unbelievable three weeks to prepare before the final. [We were] massively disappointed in the way we lost.

“It was very bad. I compare with summer 2002, when we drew with Sweden and were beaten by England in the group stage at [the] World Cup, within one week. As a player and as a manager both are the worst moments in my career.
