Tottenham won their Champions League group against Borussia Dortmund last night.
Spurs won group H just one year after finishing third in a group with Monaco, CSKA Moscow and Bayer Leverkusen.
They beat Dortmund for the second time and Pochettino is happy about his squad’s performance this season.
“It’s fantastic for us, a fantastic achievement,” he said. “To be top of the table, and to qualify for the next stage of the Champions League is new for us.”
“The season before, we were watching the draw and we thought, ‘Oh Monaco, Leverkusen and CSKA Moscow’, and we thought we had a chance for the next stage,” Pochettino recalled with a smile.
“This draw we looked and thought, ‘OK we are going to compete’ and we said nothing. And look now, we are first, top of the table.”
“It was difficult because Real Madrid and Dortmund and APOEL are always difficult,” Pochettino said.
“But we try to enjoy and be competitive and try to win. That was the idea in every single game.”
