Tottenham boss Pochettino delighted for Llorente by scoring breakthrough

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is delighted for Fernando Llorente after he scored his first goal last night.

Llorente scored in the 3-0 defeat of Champions League opponents APOEL.

"It's important for him," admitted Spurs boss Pochettino.

"When you are a striker you need to feel the net. Of course players need time to adapt, when you arrive at a new team with no pre-season you need time to find your best level.

"It's difficult to play 20 or 30 minutes, it's important for him to feel he can cope for 90 minutes.

"He is a player who is going to help the team a lot. He has been helping a lot but now with more confidence and belief he is going to help more."
