Mauricio Pochettino speaks out on two-match ban

Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino has admitted he’s a little bit shocked after FA decision to ban him for two matches.

Argentine coach has been charged for a confrontation with referee Mike Dean after the Burnley match.

“I am a little bit in shock because completely unfair. It is my seventh season in England and you can see my behavior from day one.” said Pochettino (via Daily Mail).

“In public and in private I was a coach, a manager, a person, who wanted to help, the Premier League, the FA, someone who tried to behave at my best to try to help the referees and football and always to try to improve our game.

“It is my first time here that I’m maybe not completely right in my behavior but I feel this is too much.

“I feel a little bit sad and disappointed with the punishment. It is unbelievable, no?

“I need to see the reason why. The letter has not arrived. I am banned from the touchline but I don’t know the reason yet. I am curious to see why they decided to do what they did.” he added.

Pochettino will not be on the bench for the upcoming matches against Southampton and Liverpool.
