Mauricio Pochettino believes that Tottenham deserve a match due to their strong start in the Premier League season in the midst of problems off the field.
The Spurs are ranked fifth in the table, two points from the top, after claiming six victories since its opening. eight games, including a 3-0 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford.
However, the level of their performances has been criticized, especially on Saturday, when they won a 1-0 victory over Cardiff of 10 men. City in front of a small crowd in Wembley.
That match came just three days after a 4-2 defeat at home to Barcelona in the Champions League, a result that leaves them third in their group without six possible points.
However, given the delay in completing the renovation work of White Hart Lane and the fact that they did not make any signature during the transfer window, Pochettino sees no reason to complain about his efforts.
"It's a strange feeling," said the Spurs boss. "I think people always expect that when you have a good season and expect the next one to be better, and that the season will get better, but I think the problem is that we have improved a lot in the last year."
"To take us to the next step, we have to finish the training camp and the stadium and people talk too much about Tottenham, [saying] & Tottenham must win titles to improve & # 39; but that's not
"We need to finish our stadium, training ground and provide the team and fans who feel at home and happy, and then invest in the team and work hard. That is not an excuse.
"We made our decision to also think about football and the club, while our competitors only think about football and try to improve the team just to win, and that is a big difference between us and the rest of the contenders.
"We can win a title, but it is not mandatory to win a title, that's the difference. [It is] is mandatory for the team that has spent a lot of money but it is not the case for us.
"With our circumstances, I think we need a party!"
