Tottenham Coach Mauricio Pochettino said he is excited to feature in the champions league, and cant wait for the competition to start, but admitted his group will be very tough.
“It’s fantastic to play against a massive team, one of the biggest teams in the world in Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and APOEL Nicosia,” said Mauricio Pochettino. “It will be tough but in the same way, we’re so excited to start this competition.
“The Champions League is the best competition in the world with the Premier League and we’re all excited to play.”
“Zinedine Zidane was an amazing player, fantastic, one of the best in history. He’s now doing a great job as manager in Real Madrid and winning titles. He’s started well in his career as a manager, just how he was as a player.
“Borussia Dortmund is another big club, a very good team and another challenge. Of course, it’s a different season (to when we faced them in the Europa League, 2016) but it’s always difficult to play against German teams and Borussia Dortmund have very good players.
“Apoel as well. For me, when the teams are in the Champions League, it’s because they deserve to be there. It will be difficult to beat them.
“If you are in the best competition in the world, it’s because you deserve to be there. Then you expect big games and tough games. It will be tough for everyone, not just us, but Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and APOEL Nicosia – our challenge is to go to the next round.”
