Pochettino takes a swipe at Arsenal player and their egos

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has taken a swipe at Arsenal’s players for their dressing-room celebrations and selfies over the weekend.

In case you have missed, The Gunners recorded a 4-2 win over Spurs in the North London derby.

“Obviously if you win a trophy like I did when I was a player, it is time to celebrate,” said Pochettino.

“Of course, show the fans you are happy, it’s fantastic, but when you win something special. I accept people need it. It is how you feed your ego and I accept it is a new world. But I am of the older generation and, personally, I don’t like them. This is my mentality. I accept new technology but I try to keep a bit of that away. I love to celebrate the things with your team-mates but I love to celebrate in private and not make it public.”
