Pochettino Hails Huge Spurs Achievement

Mauricio Pochettino has hailed Tottenham’s “fantastic achievement” in getting to the Champions League quarter-finals.

Spurs finished the job against Borussia Dortmund as Harry Kane’s second-half goal, sealed a 4-0 aggregate win in the last-16 tie.

The hard yards of their progression were done with their 3-0 first leg at Wembley three weeks ago, but they also came through a testing opening 45 minutes at Signal Iduna Park where Dortmund laid siege to their goal.

Hugo Lloris pulled off several saves on his way to a 100th clean sheet for the club, allowing Kane’s clinical finish early in the second half to kill the tie off.

“I feel very proud,” Pochettino said. “I am more than happy first of all for our players. They deserved it, the effort was brilliant.

“Playing with a massive disadvantage with the first leg at Wembley and tonight I think it was a great effort and I want to congratulate my players.

“Then of course very proud for our fans and the club. I think it’s a fantastic season, a season that we are going to remember. “Of course it is only the quarter-finals but it’s a fantastic achievement for the team.”
