“In football you always can make a mistake,” said Pochettino. “It was an unlucky action, a difficult action in this moment.

“He made one mistake after another mistake, but we need to accept it, because this is football.

“I am very disappointed. I am angry, I am frustrated and all that you want to say, but it is 1-1 in the end.

“We conceded in the last minute, which is very disappointing, and maybe frustrating. It is hard to accept this.”

Spurs have now drawn two out of their two Europa League games, however the result could have been worse if it wasn’t for French goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

“It is important to have a goalkeeper like him or Michel Vorm or Brad Friedel,” Pochettino added.

“They have a lot of experience and they are top class.

“Yes, he produced two or three big saves but I liked their goalkeeper because he produced two big saves too. It was 1-0 and, if we scored the second goal, then we kill the game.”
