Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino says his team will learn a lot from the Audi Cup as they beat Bayern Munich to lift the trophy.
The north London outfit overcame Real Madrid 1-0 on Tuesday before then beating Bayern Munich in a penalty shootout after a 2-2 draw.
Pochettino’s men still have to play Inter Milan before the start of the new Premier League campaign and the Argentine is pleased with his team’s progress in pre-season.
The likes of Jack Roles, Oliver Skipp and Japhet Tanganga have all been given regular game time in the last few weeks and Pochettino has been impressed with how quickly his side have improved. “It was a very positive experience,” he told the club’s website.
“I am so happy with the performance and behaviour of the players. “We are learning a lot and improving a lot every day. I am so happy and we keep going.
“When you play a team like Real Madrid or Bayern Munich, always to have this sort of experience is an amazing thing for the players – for the young players and of course for the senior players to build their fitness and be stronger every day.
“We are having a very tough pre-season, but we are competing very well and if we create this habit to compete really well, of course it’s going to help us in the season to try to fight for big things.
“It’s clear that we have young players, maybe with not too much experience, but with great character and personality and that is a very important thing.”
Tottenham start the new season against Aston Villa and punters can back them to win the Premier League title at odds of 15.00.
