Punch Wasn't Taking The Pee!

Punch Wasn't Taking The Pee!

Mauricio Pochettino laughed off Jason Puncheon's ill timed toilet trip in the game against Everton, by saying players get nervous with a new manager.

The new gaffer was quoted in The Mirror as saying.

'I have only seen that happen once before in my career. But he was feeling a bit unstable and he had to rush to the loo. When there is a new manager, the players want to impress and sometimes nerves get the better of them!'

A sense of humour to boot.

Or extracting the urine!! Listening to Pochettino he seemed to feel that it was almost forgivable. Signs of stress he reckons. I shall keep my thoughts to myself.

Well with Punch's history, you can forgive him for being a bit nervous really. Made up with those involved, was being relied on and now a new manager coming in with his own ideas must be unsettling.

It's that rare really if it happens I suppose you have to forgive it in many ways and just treat it as a giggle. A good level headed response from Poch though I thought.

I agree. Thought he handled it well. Will probably get him some incontinence pads for the next game.

It shows how much it matters when a player can be affected like that. Shows he cares.
