Mauricio Pochettino: 'We've got a group of winners'

Take a look at the Parisians' post-match reactions from the game against Lens in matchday 35 of Ligue 1.

Mauricio Pochettino 

«I think Lens are a very good team. We were talking before the game about it being difficult and it was difficult. Congratulations to them and the coach because I think they played so well. But we were better. I think we were better. It maybe wasn’t a fantastic game but it was professional and we got the three points which was our goal from the beginning. I think we've got a group of winners. They’re competitive and they always want to win. We’re working so hard and it’s so difficult with the circumstances we’re living in. Sometimes to manage everything is not easy and that’s why we are so proud. Four months here and we can only say good things of them.

The team has character, mentality and of course now we’re going to be ready and Tuesday is a game that we must win and score goals in. I think that the victory helped us build confidence and go into the game in good conditions."


"We knew it would be a competitive and difficult game, but we got what we needed which was the victory. Of course the match was complicated for us, it took a lot out of us.
Most of the team was a bit tired, mentally rather than physically, and we had to recover as soon as possible to play this game. We still have some details to improve of course but we achieved the most important thing which was the win to keep us in the fight for the title."
