Southampton boss Pochettino tribute to Cortese after Liverpool win

Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino paid tribute to chairman Nic Cortese after victory at Liverpool.

Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino paid tribute to chairman Nic Cortese after victory at Liverpool.

Pochettino believes the club is moving in a new direction which should bring greater success.

"The chairman (Nicola Cortese) has been developing that winning mentality for the last four years so it is just not me," he said.

"We fully believe in how we want to play and victories like this one reinforces that belief even more. What we have to do is learn from these type of games, learn from the experience.

"We have to believe we can do this in very tough stadiums in the rest of the country. We have to keep on developing that winning mentality and that comes from the manager.

"But we have to think about the Capital One Cup game on Tuesday (against Bristol City) and the league game (against Crystal Palace) on Saturday.

"It (victory) won't be worth anything if we get ahead of ourselves."
