Dinner date gives Tottenham players appetite for success

Mauricio Pochettino took his Tottenham players and staff for a steak dinner this week in a bid to fuel his club’ s appetite for success .

Pochettino paid for a large group of Tottenham stars and his coaches , as well as the club’ s chairman Daniel Levy , to eat at the Beast restaurant on London’ s Oxford Street .

The menu boasts steaks from Finland, Spain and Nebraska and Pochettino chose the Spanish cut , which came in at £13 ( $17 , 14 euros ) per 100g , as well as wine from his native Argentina.

With a London derby against West Ham looming for Tottenham on Saturday ,
Pochettino believes his title -chasing team will benefit from bonding over the dinner table .
“ You need time to create a good dynamic , not only tactics but outside too, ” Pochettino said on Friday .

“ We had a dinner in a restaurant in London
L with all the staff and players that I invite of course . I paid the bill at the end ! That is true, the one time that I was invited !

“ That is important because you prefer to say , ‘ Shall we do tactics here in the morning or would you prefer to go last night and put all the staff, the players and the chairman too in a restaurant?’ That is tactics too .

“ It is so important , just as it is important to work on the pitch , to know better in between them , to speak in a different way . That creates links between them , emotion.

“ When you must fight in a competition , there’ s willingness more to help your team-mates and care more for your team-mates and care more for the gaffer that pays the bill !”
