Mauricio Pochettino slams Premier League for not supporting English clubs

Tottenham coach Mauricio Pochettino has slammed Premier League official for not showing enough support to English teams, that are competing in Champions League.

Spurs had 3 matches during a week and they failed to win a single one of those matches, which almost left them out from title race.

Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund, Tottenham Round of 16 rivals, had their match against Augsburg on Friday.

“It is a problem that in the future it is a thing we need to change if we want to help the English clubs be stronger in the competition.” Pochettino said (via Mirror)

“I don’t understand again, to arrive not in the same situation both clubs going to compete for a massive and important competition like the Champions League.

“Of course we are going to fight and give our best. It’s impossible in this type of game, last 16, how important the game is, that one team had 24 hours more than the other to prepare. I think it is massive.

“I think we need help from the FA, we need help from the Premier League, I don’t now because I am not involved in the decisions. Look, Dortmund played on Friday, for us impossible.

“It’s not fair for the players, for the team to compete with a massive disadvantage. 24 or 48 hours is massive.

“I don’t say that I am complaining about someone, only that I would like to play in the same situation as your opponent.” added Pochettino.

Spurs beat Dortmund at Wembley due to Son, Vertonghen and Llorente goals and have a big advantage over Bundesliga rivals to reach quarterfinals.
