Mauricio Pochettino: Southampton will always be special for me in my heart


Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino says his side deserved to get all three points against Southampton on Sunday.

The former Saints manager was full of praise for his old club as Spurs move up to sixth in the table after the narrow win, taking full advantage of Arsenal's defeat against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

"It is an important win. It was a very tough game. Southampton have unbelievable players," Pochettino said after the game.

"We are still improving. I arrived three months ago.

"It is always difficult to put together a different philosophy in such a short time. It is important to build something for the long term.

"All the players did a great job today and did their best. We deserved the three points.

"I love Southampton and the club. It was a great period. Southampton will always be special for me in my heart."
