After a recent 4-0 aggregate win against Borussia Dortmund, the Tottenham Spurs has yet to reach the last eight of the Champions League. Mauricio Pochettino finds himself on a touchline ban for confronting the game’s referee, Mike Dean. I am not going to talk because it easy to pay,” the 47-year-old Argentinian boss adds.
Pochettino aggressively marched into the pitch to approach Dean after the full-time following Spurs’ 2-1 defeat by Burnley. Dean was also removed from officiating the game after the heated confrontation, according to Daily Mail. The Football Associated charged the angry Argentine with behavioral issues which the Spurs coach accepted, and didn’t bother to request a personal hearing.
The Spurs boss insisted that the Premier League fixture schedulers a night prior in Germany and said his team was at a “massive disadvantage” since Dortmund got more than a day’s notice to get ready for each leg of the competition.
