Pochettino adamant new stadium will take Spurs into elite

"In this type of game, every minimal detail can help you win the game". It's two games against this type of club - one on the pitch, one outside the pitch. "It was easy for the referee to manage us because we were very nice people, trying to help to play a game". We had two penalties in first half because of the handballs, maybe Jan Vertonghen was a penalty but it's about balance.

"Then, in football, it's not only about a better performance, stats, shots more on targets, or have more possession. It is like the process at different clubs".

"Juventus are specialists because they have the habit to win and the habit to put pressure on the referee".

Agnelli was on the pitch during Juve's warm-up for the first leg in Turin, a 2-2 draw, and at Wembley the president positioned himself in the tunnel, along with Marotta, who Pochettino saw talking to referee Marciniak at the interval. The most important thing here is the basis and everything that we are doing is always with the objective to win, to win trophies. Many fouls that weren't fouls, many times they started the game with the ball moving, players inside the box on goal-kicks - you need to take it again.

"I think it's a massive situation that you must learn from".

Pochettino has been criticised in some quarters after Tottenham surrendered a one-goal lead to lose 2-1 [4-3 on aggregate] against Juventus on Wednesday night.

The former Arsenal midfielder has suggested the inexperience of Tottenham Hotspur's players cost them in Europe.

Del Potro vs. Mayer: por cuarta ronda de Indian Wells 2018
Nadie cedía su saque mientras los juegos se iban sucediendo, para algarabía del público presente en el Estadio 1 de Indian Wells . Todos esperaban un hipotético enfrentamiento ante el exnúmero uno del mundo, el serbio Novak Djokovic , pero la historia es otra.

Son Heung-min opened the scoring to put Spurs ahead going into half-time, but second half strikes from Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala saw Juventus advance to the Champions League quarter finals.

"In less than three minutes we conceded two goals - two big mistakes - and that is why we are out", Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino told reporters.

"When you are a player you feel the support of the people that are there".

Still to face three top-six sides, Bournemouth had thought they were able to earn three crucial points against Leicester City last time out, only to be undone by a late leveller from Riyad Mahrez during injury time.

Don't count the Cherries out if they go down early, as Howe's side are the most resilient around.

"When you compete against Juventus, it's 11-v-11 on the pitch but the history sometimes is a reason that puts success on one side or another". In the same way, the club is doing a fantastic job to create the facilities to be close to win titles.
