Tottenham Hotspur will need to gather their heads after the crazy week they have just had.

After winning their home Champions League leg 1-0 thanks to a late Son striker, Spurs took a narrow lead to the Etihad on Wednesday.

However, against all the odds, Tottenham qualified for their first ever Champions League semi final, after scoring three away goals at Manchester City, dumping the Premier League title holders out of the competition.

Spurs will now go marching on to face Ajax over two legs, although they will be without Heung Min Son for the first leg, and Harry Kane for both.

No one can doubt the incredible job Pochettino has done at Tottenham, and Spurs winning the whole competition would be a win for football in a way, proving that you do not need to spend huge sums of money to win titles.

Former Spurs striker Dimitar Berbatov has claimed that Spurs winning would be a fairy-tale, and that everything is possible.

He said (Betfair – as quoted by Football London): “Imagine Spurs winning the Champions League, that would be a fairytale!

“Remember they were almost dead in the group stage so this is a genuinely amazing comeback.

“After the game I saw Mauricio Pochettino showing emotion like never before. He hugged two of his assistants so hard and was screaming, it was incredible to see. You could see just what it meant to him.

“Everything is possible for them right now.”
