Mauricio Pochettino: Congratulations to Leicester, to Claudio Ranieri and his players


Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino was full of praise for his players despite missing out on the title.

Spurs could only manage a draw away at Chelsea on Monday night despite enjoying a two-goal lead at the end of the first half.

They face Southampton at home next as they will try to hang on to second place before visiting Newcastle on May 15.

"First of all, congratulations to Leicester, to Claudio Ranieri and his players, it has been an amazing season for them," Pochettino said.

"We are disappointed because of how the game went.

"We had the opportunity to get the three points, but it's always difficult. It was a battle. We are the youngest squad in the Premier League and we feel proud, proud of our players and supporters.

"We are still trying to make history. It's true we feel sad and disappointed but heads up, the season has been fantastic in the way that we have played and the principles we've set out.

"Now we need to win the next games and try to be sure of second place. This is our objective now."
