Pochettino admits Tottenham deserved to be knocked out of Champions League

Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that they deserved to be knocked out of Champions League.

The London club were eliminated from the competition after falling to a 2-1 loss at AS Monaco on Tuesday, one of three defeats for Spurs in Group E this season.

“We are out and we have time to assess and analyse. It is true we feel disappointed but today we missed opportunities,” Pochettino told BT Sport.

“I think we made too many mistakes at home at Wembley. We don’t deserve to go through to the next round because we didn’t show enough quality.

“We will take many things from this defeat, you learn and improve every day. Now we are trying to reduce the gap on the teams above us in the Premier League.”
