Pochettino wants Spurs players to connect with ‘superior energy’
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has been trying to get his side to connect with a “superior energy” which he believes will help them win the Champions League.
Much of Spurs’ preparations over the last three weeks for the biggest game in their history against Liverpool in Madrid on Saturday have centred around the mental side of the game.
They had a team bonding day last week where Pochettino had his players walking over hot coals, snapping an arrow that was up against their throat by walking into a wall and going through body language exercises.
The Argentinian, who also designated 45 minutes each day to the mental preparation, is a self-confessed spiritualist and believes in fate, destiny, energies, and auras.
He has tried to translate his message to the players in order to give them the best chance of being successful on Saturday.
“That is proof of how, with your mind, you can create, you can connect with this energy,” he said.
“It’s a superior energy that you can connect with if you are open if you have opened your mind.
