Liverpool’s Rickie Lambert has high praise for new Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino [Telegraph]

With Tottenham having a number of misfiring attackers on their books, an interview given by new Liverpool striker Rickie Lambert to the Sunday Telegraph, has been picked up by Spurs fans today.

Lambert discusses with Jason Burt his rapid rise up the divisions to now play for Liverpool, the club he supported as a boy and the side that released him as a youngster.

One of the highlights is how Pochettino got the Southampton squad to (literally) run over hot coals during pre-season last summer.

And, as an “avowed disciple” of Pochettino, the new Liverpool striker has high praise for the new man in charge at White Hart Lane.
