Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino won’t be fazed by an intimidation tactics from the Sheffield United crowd ahead of tonight’s Capital One Cup semi-final clash at Brammall Lane, reports Sky
Spurs travel to face the League One side at a ground where the crowd will be looking to upset their rhythm, but Pochettino believes his past career spent in South America has toughen him up for anything they will throw at home this evening.
“Sometimes, in different countries, you are worried for your life. Supporters saliva, they throw things, radios and mobile phones, it is dangerous. So if I can cope with that, we can cope with anything. When we arrived (in England), it was nothing (compared to previous treatment). The (fans) shout when something goes wrong, but nothing else, so this is easy,” said Pochettino.
