Tottenham Hotspur made club history this week after beating Manchester City over two legs to reach the Champions League semi final for the first time ever.

The only other time Spurs have reached the quarter final ended in a hefty defeat to the hands of Real Madrid, but the Lilywhites were far more competitive this time around.

Pochettino’s men won the home leg 1-0, before heading to the Etihad, home of the Premier League champions, and scoring three away goals to send them through.

Spurs will now play Ajax across two legs in the semi final for a chance to play Liverpool or Barcelona in the final.

As if Spurs fans need any more of a reason to support their club in this Champions League campaign, an ex-Arsenal player has now offered up an extra incentive.

Perry Groves has told talkSPORT that he will be supporting whoever plays against Spurs, and will move to Australia if they go all the way and win it.

He said: “If Spurs win the Champions League, I’m gone, I’m off to Australia.

“Can you imagine the season that lot get through to the Champions League final and win it? Oh my good God. Any other England team, great!

“I must admit, it would be hats off to Pochettino, you have to give him credit for the job he’s done this season, with Harry Kane being injured, playing at Wembley, having limited resources etc. It’s between him and Jurgen Klopp for manager of the year, even if they get beat in the semi-final.

“But, there’s still a chance for them to be Spursy because they’re the favourites for this game. There’s still a chance for them to choke, and please God let them choke!

“I’d watch the final from afar, from Australia, just in case. I’ll be there already.

“I’d watch it and whoever they’re playing against, id’ want them to batter Spurs.

“If they played Liverpool, I’d want them to win. If it’s Barcelona, I want Messi to run rings around them.

“So, come on Ajax!”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. What a sad twat lol. Please move over there and take the rest of the outcast gooner army with you, you’re all so boring and totally mental…

  2. You have to qualify to live in Australia.
    Mr Groves stole a living while pretending to be a footballer at Arsenal. I think the Australian immigration might be more difficult to convince than Arsenal.
