Pochettino given two-match ban after ref outburst

Tottenham have one foot in the last eight after a 3-0 first-leg win at Wembley

Redknapp, who took Tottenham to their last Champions League quarter-final, which came in 2011, believes the current crop of players, coupled with a move into their new stadium, could shock the favourites.

"The Tottenham manager accepted an improper conduct charge from the FA, which resulted from his language and/or behaviour - both on the pitch and in or around the tunnel area - at the end of the game against Burnley on February 23".

Seemingly misunderstanding a question about the new stadium, Pochettino said: "You're going to see tomorrow why I'm not going to talk".

"I think it's going to help me and I hope I don't repeat this type of situation". Of course we conceded more chances but that is football.

"It would be an incredible atmosphere if they played the Champions League quarter-final there - the fans would love it", Redknapp told talkSPORT.

"I'm very disappointed, I don't think it's going to change, but I don't care".

Tottenham arrived in Dortmund with a 3-0 aggregate lead and predictably faced an early onslaught.

"The plan was different but during the game what happened happened and we needed to adapt ourselves", said Pochettino.


It took heroic blocks from Jan Vertonghen and Ben Davies, along with a diving save from Hugo Lloris, to keep the hosts out before Harry Kane's 48th-minute strike put Spurs out of sight.

"When you have in your hands the possibility to be in the quarterfinal, everyone believed that the job was done and it's so risky".

Here are the player ratings for the Borussia Dortmund players from the game.

"In the last 10 minutes of the first half it was hard for us".

Needing to score at least three goals, Dortmund packed their line-up with forwards as Mario Goetze, Marco Reus and Paco Alcacer - who have scored 30 goals between them - all started together for the first time this season.

'Imagine that at the new stadium.

DORTMUND, GERMANY - MARCH 05: Thomas Delaney (2R) and Julian Weigl of Dortmund look dejected after the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 Second Leg match between Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham Hotspur at Westfalen Stadium on March 05, 2019 in Dortmund, North Rhine-Westphalia. The mentality and determination is fantastic. "I can not behave in that way".
