Tottenham Hotspur have achieved the unthinkable, they have overcome all the odds, they are living the dream; Tottenham are in the Champions League final.
One man in a green shirt took all the plaudits last night as Lucas Moura banged a second-half hat-trick to send Spurs through on away goals against Ajax.
Spurs found themselves 2-0 at half-time on the night and 3-0 down on aggregate, with nothing but a slim slither of a dream left of qualifying for Madrid.
However, a second 45 domination from the Spurs team and clinical finishing at its very best, the Lilywhites achieved yet another Champions League comeback, following in the footsteps of Liverpool.
Despite Moura grabbing the vital goals, one other man should be held on a similar standing, and that is Mauricio Pochettino.
This final is the culmination of five years of work on his part, and it has finally come to fruition.
However, the manager spoke slightly tongue-in-cheek about his future at the club if Spurs win or lose the final.
One journalist asked Poch if he would leave Tottenham if they won the Champions League, to which the Argentine sarcastically replied (Express): “Yes I am going to leave or if I lose maybe too.”
The question came after Poch had talked about going home if Spurs won the CL ahead of the second leg (Express): “Winning the Champions League? It should be fantastic, no? Close the five-year chapter and go home.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
I can’t see Pochettino going anywhere for a good while now, and surely Daniel Levy will now provide him with big money to invest this summer. If there was ever a time to spend big on quality players and make a push for silverware, it is now.
