Mauricio Pochettino buoyant despite "very tough period"

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino remains buoyant amid a "very tough period" of results in his brief reign as Tottenham boss.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that he is facing a "very tough period" of results, but is ready to rise to the challenge of turning things around.

Spurs have won just two of their last nine outings in all competitions as the North Londoners have struggled for consistency in the Argentine's brief tenure thus far.

Pochettino revealed that he knew what he was getting himself in for when he arrived at White Hart Lane from Southampton, and believes that he can still build "something important" during his reign.

"I have enjoyed my four months at Tottenham. We knew when we signed for Tottenham that we expected a tough period," he told reporters.

"We are in a very tough period in the club, but when you arrive to a club with big potential like Tottenham, a big club, and have the possibility to build something important, this is a very good challenge for us.

"I enjoy, but I try to enjoy it more than I am. I am aware of the results."

Pochettino's side sit ninth in the Premier League table.
