Spurs lost 2-0 to Liverpool in their Champions League final in June.
They start their new European campaign against Greek side Olympiakos in Piraeus on Wednesday (17:55 BST).
«It was a lengthy time following the closing in Madrid,» explained Pochettino.
«Being honest I was thinking a lot during the summer. To complete losing the final is obviously painful since you can’t put the atmosphere and you need to wait to begin again to fix the damage.
«It’s exciting to begin a new campaign and now here in Greece. It is definitely going to be an unbelievable atmosphere also.»
Pochettino has played down Tottenham’s likelihood of repeating last season’s Champions League run, which contained a next leg victory off at Ajax.
