Tottenham Hotspur supporters have been left unimpressed with manager Mauricio Pochettino’s suggestion that the club lost 1-0 to Newcastle United because of a lack of unity.
Speaking to reporters following the final whistle, he said, per The Guardian: “The problem is during the week, not when the competition arrives. This type of situation happens in the Premier League. That is why you need to create a very good dynamic and strong team bonding and, at the moment, that situation in our group is still far, far away. The group is still unsettled and we need to find solutions.
Joelinton’s goal gave the Magpies all three points despite Spurs dominating the game; WhoScored reports that they had almost 80% possession in the encounter but were unable to break down Steve Bruce’s men.
The result was made all the more disappointing by a failed penalty shout, with Harry Kane upended by Jamaal Lascelles in the box; Mike Dean, the referee, did not point to the spot and VAR did not overturn the decision.
