Pochettino asks for patience with his Tottenham still under construction

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 169

Mauricio Pochettino still hasn't hit form yet this season. He has fallen to 14th and nervousness is beginning to be patent. The Argentine coach recalled the complications he faces.

"We have to find a balance. We're building a team that can play in the Champions League and the Premier League, the toughest league in the world", Pochettino explained after drawing 1-1 with the recently promoted Sheffield United.

The Argentine manager showed off his repertoire of excuses. "Situations like this can happen. You expect better results than you get. We're under construction and we'll see if we have time to do what we want," he added.

Tottenham are 14th in the League with 14 points. Spurs are 6 points above the relegation zone and 3 from the Europa League spots, but 10 from the Champions League ones.

In the Champions League, Tottenham are on course to qualify for the last 16, despite the very heavy defeat against Bayern. Spurs have scored 9 goals against Red Star Belgrade, the team competing to qualify instead of them.
