Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino admits Spurs “gave up a little bit” in their 7-2 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday.
After opening the scoring in the 12th minute, Pochettino’s side conceded three goals in the last 10 minutes as they let in seven goals for the first time ever on home soil.
With questions quickly being asked of the Argentine post-match, the Tottenham coach conceded his team lost their fighting spirit in the closing stages of the contest.
“The feeling at the end, when we conceded the three goals, it was like the team was tired and gave up a little bit,” Pochettino said.
“Maybe that showed a little bit our frustration in the game because up until 83 minutes the team were alive, we were fighting, trying to create chances to score a third goal and we were still in the game. But they were very clinical.”
