If things weren’t already bad enough for Mauricio Pochettino after watching his team lose 7-2 at home to Bayern Munich on Tuesday evening – one of his players has now publicly criticised his tactics.

Indeed, Moussa Sissoko has come out and said that the midfield diamond that the Argentine has been persevering with leaves the team tired early on in the match.
It’s not often you see a player come out to publicly criticise his manager’s methods, but Sissoko has taken a bold step by questioning the Spurs boss.
ESPN’s top pundits couldn’t believe what they were hearing after the Frenchman’s comments.
“I guess they haven’t had media training, I guess they don’t know how to address a question, or they just have no common sense.” Alejandro Moreno said.
You’ve got to say it’s rather odd to air these issues publicly. All this does is begin rumours of unrest within the squad, and potentially causes a rift between Sissoko and the gaffer.
It remains to be seen whether or not the midfield diamond is utilised again this weekend, but there will certainly be more conversations about this no matter how Spurs line up against Brighton.
