After the game, Liberian football authorities retired jersey number 14, which was worn by Weah during his footballing peak. Former Paris Saint-Germain and Marseille star Weah is not expected to continue his global career beyond this match.
"He is the first to regret about everything and all that happened is not good, he doesn't feel great", Pochettino said. "He told me "boss it's a massive lesson for me, I made a mistake and need to pay" and now he's accepted (it) like a man that he is". All the women, men, people can make a mistake.
Speaking ahead of his side's Premier League clash against Liverpool, Pochettino moved to defend his goalkeeper, stating: "Will he stay as captain?" "He has punished himself", the Tottenham manager said.
"He is a man and he is very conscious about what happened, and of course you can not remove it, but he has the capacity to move on, learn and be focused on playing football", said Pochettino.
"Disappointed, because we're going to miss him for this game, and possibly Inter Milan in the Champions League, but it is not a big issue".
