The emotion is amazing – Pochettino in tears after Spurs fightback


“Spurs need these days, and if they can win it, it sends them into a completely different stratosphere. It is the best night in the club’s history.

“Managers have everything thrown at them and that was a night for Mauricio Pochettino. He may never get this sort of game ever again and I’m delighted for him and the football club.”

‘It almost makes you speechless’

Even former players who never wore the Tottenham shirt got caught up in the emotion of their incredible achievement.

“It almost makes you speechless what happened,” said ex-England defender Rio Ferdinand, who was working for BT Sport.

“You need heart, desire and effort. It’s about putting your heart on the line.”

‘I’m a fan – I know what it means’

And what about Harry Kane?

The striker has been nursing a damaged ankle and missed both games against Ajax.

But that did not stop the England captain rushing on to the pitch at the end to celebrate with his jubilant team-mates.

“I’m a fan first and foremost and I know how much it means to the club,” said Kane, who hopes to be fit for next month’s final.

“Rehab is going well. I start straight-line running this week, which is why I was OK to run on at the end.

“We have beaten Manchester City and Ajax so I have to start training even harder to prove myself to the gaffer.”
