We were much better than Juventus: Pochettino

Tottenham coach, Mauricio Pochettino has claimed his team is much better than Juventus despite losing to the Seria A side in the second leg of the round of 16 at Wembley Stadium.

Having equalized from 2-0 down to a 2-2 draw level in Turin, Spurs looked to be heading for the quarter-finals after Heung-min Son put them ahead at Wembley.

But Juventus scored two goals in three minutes midway through the second half to stun the hosts, who saw a late header from Harry Kane hit the post and roll along the goal-line.
I am disappointed because we missed a lot of chances and the team deserved more," said Spurs boss Pochettino. "The way we conceded two goals we feel disappointed, but the performance was fantastic.

"I am very proud. Against a very good team like Juventus we dominated - overall in the two games we were much better - but at this level in three minutes the tie went for Juventus.

"It was a bit unfair because to concede these two goals is tough, because until this Tottenham were much better and the game was under control. But that is football and now we try to see the future and look to a lot of games ahead."
