Mauricio Pochettino SLAMS Tottenham stars in brutally honest Premier League title verdict

Mauricio Pochettino confronts referee Mike Dean at the final whistle

Mauricio Pochettino confronts referee Mike Dean at the final whistle

However even the goalscoring return of Harry Kane from injury couldn't stop them losing 2-1 to Burnley ahead of a huge week where they face Chelsea and Arsenal in the league.

Joe Cole has said Tottenham's star players will have been shocked by Mauricio Pochettino's claim that it could be ten years before the club win the Premier League.

"I need to apologise to Mike Dean, I can't behave that way". We need to keep going and try to be ready for the next game. Right or wrong in the way that I wanted to complain, I can not behave in that way. I feel sorry for that [Dean being dropped] because I wanted to see him and apologise in person.

"Always I need to tell you I never lost control - I was under control - but of course in that moment the thing happened". I think I'm a very smart person who can not repeat the same mistake. "I think that is the most important, we need to accept that we are with our emotion", Pochettino added.

"I was so frustrated after the game, so disappointed with the result. Everything is possible so I don't want to give up until the end of the season". "It's only that when you start to talk, your heart-rate starts to push".

Pochettino criticised his side's lack of mental strength after a frustrating 2-1 defeat at Burnley, before going on to say it could take him a decade to develop a title-winning instinct at White Hart Lane.

"No, all that happened on the pitch stays on there", he said.

The dollar index versus a basket of six major currencies was a touch lower at 96.451, after shedding about 0.4 per cent overnight. Shares in Australian coal miners fell on Friday amid broad weakness in the resources sector, but losses eased in afternoon trade.

"It's not important, I don't take it personally".

Dean was due to be the fourth official for Spurs' next fixture at Chelsea on Wednesday, but he has been removed due to Saturday's incident. I apologise now in public [to Dean].

Asked if Tottenham are out of the title race, Son responded: "No, I don't believe that".

"For me, he is one of the best referees".

Spurs didn't play all that bad and had the chances to get more out of the game, but an unlucky final 10 minutes saw them concede.

Kane and Alli are considered Tottenham's two best talents, but Cole can not imagine a scenario where the Englishmen would be willing to wait another ten years for a title.
