Pochettino apologises to Manchester United

Tottenham Hotspur boss Pochettino has apologised to United for the rough play his team performed against the Red Devils.

“I apologise to United on behalf of our players. I expect the same because there was some action in the second half that they made to us,” Pochettino told reporters.

“I was a bit annoyed about some situations … because you can arrive late and something can happen. Sometimes you need to be aggressive, play with passion but the focus is on building fitness and developing the way we want to play.”

“Of course I was worried … Bailly got injured and I’m sorry for that … when players start to build their fitness and fight for their place, when something happens in pre season it’s always tough,” the Argentine added.

Ole spoke about Bailly’s injury and said he had no problems with the tackles.

“It seems that he’s twisted his knee so we have to do some scans and checks on him. At first sight, it doesn’t look great but let’s see how it goes,” the Norwegian told the club’s television channel MUTV.

However, Solskjaer said he had no problems with the tackles his players faced.

“It’s a competitive sport and we’re preparing for the league. There was no tippy-toe football … we didn’t just receive. We gave as well. I thought it was a good game.”
