Just a few days after a dispiriting loss against Barcelona in the Champions League, Mauricio Pochettino’s underperforming Tottenham were greeted to quite a few empty seats during their game against Cardiff City at Wembley on a rainy Saturday.
Perhaps the inclement weather coupled with Spurs’ inferior displays in the past few games contributed to the fans of the North London club shunning what would have been a rain-soaked journey all the way to England’s national football stadium.
But supporters were left disappointed by their manager’s shock at the low turnout even though they had some valid reasons. Pochettino was caught on cameras looking surprised by the lack of attendance and was seen pointing to an almost empty upper tier just before the kick-off.

Nevertheless, the decision to stay away was also vindicated as Spurs looked a pale shadow of the attacking, high pressing side they’ve become under Pochettino over the years and struggled to a 1-0 win against a side that lies at the bottom of the table.
