Mauricio Pochettino insisted that “In football, nothing is impossible” after speaking to the media following Tottenham Hotspur’s 1-1 draw against Barcelona.
On October 24th following a frustrating 2-2 draw at PSV Eindhoven, the Spurs boss admitted to the Evening Standard: “If you don’t win this type of game it’s so difficult to deserve to qualify in the Champions League.”
However, following a spirited display at the Nou Camp along with events in Italy that saw Inter Milan draw against PSV Eindhoven, Spurs have managed to salvage their Champions League status.
It was evident to see that Pochettino was proud of the performance of his players, in years gone by the side would have crumbled after going 1-0 down so early on in the game.
Come next Monday, Tottenham will find out who they will face in the final round of 16.
