Mauricio Pochettino happy with win, eyes second half improvement


Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino was happy to take all three points from the Kolokotronis Stadium on Thursday but insists his players are to approach second halves in a better way.

Argentine defender Federico Fazio saw his second red in a month for Spurs but it was too late for Asteras Tripolis as Pochettino's men registered a much-needed win in Group C of the Europa League.

"I think that during the first half we were better than Asteras," Pochettino said.

"We played well during some moments and scored two goals.

"After half-time, they started well and created one chance very early.

"We had some chances to score the third goal but in football it's difficult because Asteras start to play and to be confident in the game.

"They created some chances and at the end with the Fazio penalty and him being sent off, it made it difficult in the last four or five minutes - but we are happy.

"We came to get the three points, the result is good and I am happy.

"Today Asteras didn't score at the beginning of the second half. It is a different game.

"We need to improve, we need to work, we need to realise we need to improve in different aspects of the game.

"I think that we played very well but the second half was different and we need to review the game and improve."
