Mauricio Pochettino took a long-term view of how Tottenham need to stay competitive in England and in Europe ahead of their Champions League clash against Manchester City.
“After this season, a chapter is going to be closed and we are going to start another chapter and we need to translate to our fans what we want to do, which is challenge for the next few years. With our new stadium, we need to be contenders to fight for the Premier League and fighting for the Champions League, and find the tools to try to be there. We are ambitious. We are here not because we love to play football but because we love to compete and we love to win,” said Pochettino.
Hugo Lloris said that the team need to be prepared to suffer to beat City.
“We know we will have to suffer. We are ready to suffer because tomorrow we are going to suffer,” said Lloris.
