The Tottenham Hotspur footballer believes the Argentinean manager knows exactly what’s he is doing in today’s Champions League Final.

Tonight, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool will meet in Wanda Metropolitano stadium in Madrid, to see who will lift the UEFA Champions League trophy.

And for Spurs footballer Harry Winks, his team is ready to obey any decisions manager Mauricio Pochettino takes.

“The starting 11 is just the starting 11,” the midfielder told ESPN.

“We’ve played so many matches in the Champions League this season that everybody has contributed in their own way.”

“Of course everybody wants to start, but it’s bigger than that,” he added.

“The whole magnitude of the match is a lot bigger than just the 11 players.”

“It’s what you can contribute on the bench if you’re not in the squad if you start,” Winks said.

“It’s all 25 of us. We go out there as a team, we support each other as a team.”

The player added: “Whatever team the manager decides to go with, everyone is going to respect that decision.”

“The Champions League is what we want to win, and we are more than capable of doing that.”

“Maybe one player from the bench can be decisive and can help us win the Champions League,” he continued saying.

“To have been a part of the team and to have played as many games as I have done in the Champions League, to be part of this amazing side and this incredible era for Tottenham — honestly, it’s a true privilege.”
