Skopje, 8 March 2018 (MIA) – Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino insisted that his players "were the better team" over their two matches and did not deserve to exit the Champions League, despite Wednesday's 2-1 defeat to Juventus.
"It was not a lack of experience, but a lack of concentration," he said during his press conference after the match. "In less than three minutes we conceded two goals—two big mistakes—and that is why we are out.
"But at the same time, I think [that] in both legs, in both games, we were the better team."
Pochettino added that his team would grow from their defeat and were better off for their experience in this year’s tournament.
"I feel proud because we were the better team,” he added. "Of course I'm disappointed but it is a part of growing." mr/09:42
