Tottenham Hotspur boss, Mauricio Pochettino has blamed himself for his side’s 2-1 loss to Watford in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
Goals from Troy Deeney and Craig Cathcart ensured victory for the home side at the Vicarage Road Stadium.
Pochettino said he wants more from his players but admitted the first person responsible for the defeat was himself.
“It is so painful because after Manchester United I was so disappointed with the performance. It is so painful to concede two goals like this, it is so painful because the first half looked like a friendly game,” Pochettino was quoted by Football.London as saying at post-match.
“We have good players in the squad. I think we have a strong squad. We showed against Newcastle and we showed against Fulham and at Old Trafford, but today, it’s not that we didn’t win because of the players on the bench or the squad,” he said.
“The reality is we need to analyse who is in the pitch. Of course myself first I am responsible, the guilty one when the team loses.”
“I am very disappointed, very disappointed because if you want to be a contender, first I am the first person guilty of everything, but it is so difficult to understand because I thought we controlled the game in the first 45 minutes.”
