Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has claimed that their Champions League defeat to Liverpool this year, was one of the worst moments of his career, Goal reports.

Pochettino admitted he couldn’t leave his house for 10 days after the game.

Spurs fell 2-0 to Liverpool in last month’s showpiece in Madrid.

Mohamed Salah scored from the penalty spot early and Divock Origi put the game away late in the match.

“Yes, it was difficult. We had the most unbelievable three weeks to prepare before the final. [We were] massively disappointed in the way we lost.

“It was very bad. I compare with summer 2002, when we drew with Sweden and were beaten by England in the group stage at [the] World Cup, within one week. As a player and as a manager both are the worst moments in my career.

“I took a train from Madrid to Barcelona the day after. I spent 10 days in my home and didn’t want to go out. Yes, it was tough because you nearly touched the glory,” Pochettino said.
