Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino has claimed that "he might go home" if the North London club pull off a miracle to win the UEFA Champions League ahead of their semi-final second leg against Ajax at Amsterdam.
Tottenham go into that clash looking to overturn a 1-0 deficit from the first leg and would look to do so amid some insipid performances in the Premier League off late, something which is of a concern.
“Winning the Champions League? It should be fantastic, no? Close the five-year chapter and go home. To win in these circumstances this season, maybe I need to think about maybe doing something different in the future. To repeat this miracle, you know would be impossible," Pochettino said as quoted by Reuters.
Spurs are without talisman Harry Kane for the tie, but will welcome another important player in the form of South Korea forward Son Heung-min, who missed the first leg due to suspension, with Erik Lamela also available if needed.
The Argentinian believes that their current situation should allow the team to play with much more freedom, believing that the tie is still open.
“The negative result in the first leg (at Tottenham) obviously makes it more difficult tomorrow, but the tie is still open. We know we need to win and perform to our best. It’s an exciting moment for us. We need to feel more freedom to play tomorrow, because we have nothing to lose," he added.
