Kane: Pochettino’s Squad Rotation Is Working

Featured Image

Kane has stated his goals are proof enough, Pochettino’s squad rotation is working.

Tottenham crashed out of the Europa league, with Pochettino coming under criticism for resting key players.

But the England international has scored a couple of goals in the EPL, that has pushed them to within five points of the top.

“I think we’ve got a bigger squad, maybe a better squad, players that can rotate in and out,” Kane told reporters when asked if the Europa League had a negative effect on Spurs’ season. “Players are maybe getting a bit more rest than they did last year. The manager manages it well.

“He trains the workload, how much we’ve been doing and he keeps everyone fresh. Everyone looked fresh out there today, everyone that came on, and that’s all you can ask for.

“As a player you want to play every game but the manager has to make his decisions and you have to deal with it. He chose not to play me midweek, and the week before, and I managed in the Premier League to score two braces.

“Obviously I feel fresh and ready to go and I’m looking forward to the international games ahead.”

Thiago Silva On Loss To Monaco: It Was Cruel On PSG

Featured Image

PSG captain, Thiago Silva feels the 2-0 loss to Monaco was cruel, after they played a good game.

PSG were crowned champions after their last victory over Troyes, only for Monaco to hand them a rare loss at home.

Second half goals from Vagner Love and Fabinho, ruined what should have been a celebratory mood at the parc des princes, and Silva felt it was undeserved.

“I can’t really explain what happened,” he told the club’s official website. “We played well but we lost – it’s cruel.

“We didn’t play badly but we lacked a little concentration for the opening goal. We wanted to fight back and get straight back into the game but we conceded a second goal very quickly and it’s hard to come back from two goals down.

“We will now rest and recover; players will head off on international duty and focus on playing our best game against Nice. We need to prepare well for that game in order to be ready for the Champions League.”

Blanc, too, believes that his side “couldn’t have done more” in attack despite failing to score.

“We’ve been a little less efficient than usual. That kind of things happen,” the Frenchman told reporters, “but we had offensive players in our XI with three strikers and [Angel] Di Maria in the midfield. We couldn’t have done more, offensively speaking.”

Jamie Carragher Shares His Thoughts On Manchester City’s Drop In Form

Featured Image

Manchester City’s ageing squad may need a bigger overhaul than Pep Guardiola initially thought, admits Jamie Carragher.

Guardiola will replace current manager Manuel Pellegrini in the summer, a move which was announced in early February, and Sky Sports pundit Carragher says he may need to bring in seven or eight new players.

image

He said on Super Sunday:

“This team haven’t got it in them, although they are great players you can see they haven’t got the legs, the energy in them now to keep going in all competitions throughout a season.

“This has been coming since last season, not just since Pep Guardiola was announced. Guardiola will be watching that today. I think he would have been thinking initially he needs three or four players. I think they might need seven or eight.

image

“You may think I’m going too far with that now, but it’s the age of the squad. The money they’ve spent, and how they can have an age profile like that, is probably mismanagement, perhaps from above Manuel Pellegrini.

“The world class players they have now don’t need replacing, but they need a lot more help.”
