Coach Mauricio Pochettino used an absurd method to strengthen the players’ mental power.
Pochettino’s prime was during his time at Tottenham Hotspur.

Coach Pochettino gave Tottenham runner-up in the English Premier League (EPL) and runner-up in the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL), and Tottenham has been away from the championship since Pochettino left the team.

Correcting that will be the top priority of manager Pochettino.” pointed out that it should be done.
At the same time, manager Pochettino revealed the absurd and shocking method he used to strengthen the mentality of his players during his Tottenham days. Time goes back to the end of the 2018-19 season, when Tottenham advanced to the UCL final and faced Liverpool.
The ‘Telegraph’ explained that at the time, Tottenham players were walking on a hot acupressure board and shot in the neck by an arrow at Pochettino’s instructions. “You need legs and muscles to run, but if you think you can’t run, you can’t move. It’s all up to you. You can set your own limits,” said Pochettino. Coach Pochettino’s intention to emphasize mental strength is fully understood, but actions such as walking on a hot acupressure board seem to be difficult to help the players’ mental strength.
