Tottenham Boss Confirms Selection Headache Ahead Of Capital One Cup Final Against Chelsea

Posted by

Spurs’ season could be decided over the next fortnight.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino had admitted that he’s suffering a selection headache ahead of the League Cup final on Sunday against Chelsea.

The Argentine has to manage his squad through a number of games over the next fortnight, including a second-leg tie against Fiorentina in Italy, needing to score to progress in the competition.

Pochettino admits that managing fatigue is his biggest challenge, and with a top four challenge to sustain too, the former Southampton boss admits the pressure is on.

“The problem is that the decision always becomes about the result you get,” Pochettino said (via Sky Sports).

“If tomorrow I rotate and then we win on Sunday I’m a genius. I may rest some players and play others and win against Chelsea in the final..

“But if we lose tomorrow and lose in the final, I am a very bad manager and I don’t think that’s fair.

“When you take a decision, sometimes you are right or wrong – this is all football. But afterwards I’m still the same manager; the same coach.”

Harry Kane is vital to any possible success, but will certainly need a breather in the upcoming weeks.
