Spurs can go all the way says Poch

18th April 2019, 00:36 by Michael Holland

Mauricio Pochettino says his Tottenham side are capable of winning the Champions League after they made it to the semi-finals.

Spurs lost an amazing quarter-final second leg 4-3 on the night, but ended Manchester City's quadruple dream courtesy of Fernando Llorente's 73rd-minute goal which made it 4-4 on aggregate, and took them through on away goals.

Ajax, who have dumped Real Madrid and Juventus out in the last two rounds, await in the semi-final giving Spurs an undeniable shot at reaching the final.

"I think today we show and last week against Manchester City that all is possible in football," said Pochettino. "That is the most important thing. Sport always gives you the possibility to beat teams that no one believes or thinks we are capable of. Why?

"Football is not only about talent but belief and to have the right mentality. This team has the personality, character and mentality to believe all is possible.

"With the quality, we can have this type of performance and achieve these big things. If not, it's impossible. With only quality, it's possible to achieve a semi-final in the Champions League."
