Spurs boss Pochettino says his side must "stay calm" following Bayern home thrashing

SHOWS: LONDON, ENGLAND, UK (OCTOBER 1, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR MANAGER, MAURICIO POCHETTINO, AFTER HIS SIDE'S 7-2 HOME DEFEAT BY BAYERN MUNICH, SAYING: "The feeling is not so good and now is a moment to be calm, I know I've made a mistake but the most important thing now after a result like to today, it is important to stay calm.

You're not going to fix anything by shouting, talking, when the emotion is on the skin." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR MANAGER, MAURICIO POCHETTINO, AFTER HIS SIDE'S 7-2 HOME DEFEAT BY BAYERN MUNICH, SAYING: "We need to try and work, to try to move on.

I think it's more psychological now.

To try to move on (there can't be) no damage between us, talking in different ways to each other, etc.

The most important thing now is to have one idea, one analysis, one assessment (to work towards)." 4.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR MANAGER, MAURICIO POCHETTINO, AFTER HIS SIDE'S 7-2 HOME DEFEAT BY BAYERN MUNICH, SAYING: "Now we need to be men and face that problem, be strong together, to try to bounce back and change those feelings." 6.

WHITE FLASH 7.

(SOUNDBITE) (German) BAYERN MUNICH MANAGER, NIKO KOVAC, AFTER HIS SIDE'S VICTORY, SAYING: "Let me start by praising the whole team, what we did here was a collective effort.

Of course we had individual qualities which we paired with technical elements which were prescribed beforehand.

Well Lewandowski scored two goals, Serge scored four and that's of course amazing, it was certainly his best game, but what pleased me as a manager was the way he defended.

That he can play up front is something I knew and he does that extremely well.

Defending was somewhat problematic (for him - Gnabry) before but today in the second half he really proved that he's good at that too and that pleases me a lot more." STORY: Tottenham Hotspur manager Maurico Pochettino wants his side to move on as quickly as possible after their 7-2 humbling at home by Bayern Munich on Tuesday (October 1).

Last year's runners-up took the lead in their Champions League Group B clash, but Serge Gnabry's four-goal haul in the second half condemned Tottenham to their heaviest ever European home defeat as the German champions ran riot.

Master marksman Robert Lewandowski also scored twice as Bayern responded to going behind early on in devastating fashion in a rain-soaked night in north London, with Joshua Kimmich bagging their other goal.

Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane were the Premier League side's goalscorers, but former Arsenal man Gnabry returned to haunt his old rivals as Spurs capitulated.

Bayern top Group B with two wins from two matches, while Spurs now face an uphill battle to qualify after mustering only one point from their opening two matches.

In the group's other game, Red Star Belgrade came from behind to beat Greek visitors Olympiakos 3-1.
