Look out for your chance to ask Mauricio and the players questions pre and post-match - follow us @SpursOfficial...
@SpursOfficial We often hear about the player's pre-match routine, but how do you and the coaching staff prepare for a big game like this?— Callum (@_Cxllxm_) February 12, 2016
Mauricio: “We have the same routine for all the games when we travel away. We arrive at the hotel the night before, have dinner, breakfast, a pre-match meeting and then travel to the stadium. This is our normal routine.”
Mauricio: “We cannot change our style or philosophy. It’s important in football to always be positive and to believe, and that’s the key.”
@SpursOfficial With only 13 matches to go, we being in a great position, is there a change in mentality or the approach towards every game?— India Spurs (@IndiaSpurs) February 12, 2016
Mauricio: “We need to behave in the same way. It’s true, we’re now coming to the key moment in the league but we have to keep going, keep working hard and try to improve every day. We don’t need to change – we need to follow in the same direction.”
“I’m very pleased for him because he’s still very young and he adapted superbly to the club and the team. We believe in him, we trust in him and it’s up to him to enjoy it and just play, because we believe in him.”
Mauricio: “Yes, set-pieces are an important aspect of the game. We try to do different things in every game. We’re happy with how we work in this area. This speaks well about the team, aggression, focus, this is important at set-pieces, to always be aware.”
