Spurs 3-0 Borussia Dortmund - Mauricio's verdict

Share

Spurs did not manage a single shot on target in the first period of their round-of-16 clash against the Bundesliga leaders, but they took the lead through Son Heung-min moments after the break.

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits they tried to sign Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho. "When you have a team in front of you like Dortmund you need to respect them", Pochettino said.

Second-half goals from Son Heungmin, Jan Vertonghen and Fernando Llorente led Mauricio Pochettino's charges to an impressive victory that sets the north London side up nicely heading into the second leg on 5 March.

"I don't have any words for the second half".

Pochettino devised a clever game-plan that eventually frustrated Dortmund and secured Tottenham's first ever Champions League knockout-round win at home.

"The first half we played really well".

The goal was Son's ninth in his last 11 games against Dortmund, who are surely sick of the sight of him, as are many Premier League teams - he now has 16 goals and nine assists to his name in 32 Spurs games this season (in all competitions).

Harry Kane or Dele Alli are very important for us but we have players who can come in and do well.

"He is one of the best players of his generation, he can dribble, he has the arrogance - look at the boy, there is something in there that is part of the big players". He smiles and he creates energy in every single game. "If it was a different result, people might say I'm the worst coach in the world", he said. But Tottenham's manager played down the success of his tactics.

"The balance is the most important thing. You just need to take the right decision the next time because football is about winning".

"They dropped off a bit then that early goal in the second half helped". "Of course he still needs to improve and learn".

Yet Skomina called for a VAR check and after a number of replays, ruled that Tadic had been standing in an offside position when the goal was scored. I want to congratulate my players.
