- Liverpool defeated Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League final last season.
- Spurs' then-manager Pochettino believes that his team were better against Jurgen Klopp's Reds who won the game 2-0.
- Poch adds that he thinks Spurs deserved better in the game.
- However, he admits that finals are 'about winning' and not about who deserves it more.
Liverpool beat Tottenham Hotspur in an all-English Champions League final last season in Madrid to lift Europe's most prized possession for the 6th time.
Mauricio Pochettino, who was in charge of Spurs during that final, believes that his team were better in that game than the Reds, who won the match 2-0.
In an interview with the Guardian, Poch said: "We were much better than Liverpool and maybe we deserved a better result but finals are about winning.
"It’s not about to deserve or not to deserve. No one is prepared to concede in the Champions League final like we did after 30 seconds and that changed everything, all the emotions.
"It is difficult to prepare a team for that happening. I was so disappointed afterwards. It was difficult to stop crying, to stop feeling bad."
We feel for you Poch, but we simply do not agree with your statement.
Jurgen Klopp had learned from his previous final losses with Liverpool and chose to go with a more conservative approach in the final which completely nullified Spurs' attack.
As Poch said - it is not about who deserved it, but who won it. Even so, it cannot be said that the North London team outperformed the Merseyside team on the night!
