Tottenham Hotspur have had a topsy-turvy season so far with several highs and lows. While the mood surrounding the club was quite gloomy at the start of the season due to the club not signing a single player last summer and the delay with the new stadium, the team still kept winning games.
Just when Tottenham fans became hopeful, Pochettino’s men fell to home defeats to Wolves and Manchester United and lost Harry Kane to an ankle injury. However, Spurs went on another run which again made Spurs fans optimistic about their prospects of putting up a title challenge before they lost to Burnley and Chelsea last week, which dragged them back into a race for a top four finish.
As far as the Champions League is concerned, Spurs looked down and out of the competition after picking up just a point from their first 3 group games. Tottenham then took 7 points off their final three games to qualify to the knockout stages, and now find themselves in the quarterfinals after thrashing Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund 4-0 on aggregate.
Speaking after the second leg against Dortmund, Pochettino congratulated his players on their effort and said that the mood will now completely change around the club if they can move into their new stadium.
Speaking to Football.London, the Argentine said, “I feel very proud. I am more than happy first of all for our players. They deserved it, the effort was brilliant. Playing with a massive disadvantage with the first leg at Wembley and tonight I think it was a great effort and I want to congratulate my players.
“Then of course very proud for our fans and the club. More than happy, it’s a season, a very particular season. I think to help the club achieve, not only reach the quarter-finals but be in a good mood if we are to change again, move and open our new stadium.
“I think it’s a fantastic season, a season that we are going to remember. Of course that is only we are going to be in the Champions League quarter-finals but it’s a fantastic achievement for the team.”
