Tottenham players feel they belong in the Champions League, says midfielder Jermaine Jenas.
Jenas, who has played in seven of Tottenhamâs eight Champions League matches, pinpoints two pivotal moments that helped the players to develop the belief that they could compete with any club in Europe.
âFirst half away to Werder Bremen, we took them to the cleaners,â he told the Telegraph. âWe didnât win the game but, from that moment, we looked at each other and said, âwe can go through hereâ. It was our first moment in the Champions League.
âStill, at that point, we didnât dream of playing at the BernabÃ©u in the quarter-finals. The ânearlyâ comeback against Inter Milan was another big moment. We started doing things that people just did not see happening. We went to Milan and were 4-0 down and got three goals back with 10 men. We then went to Emirates. We were 2-0 down and won 3-2. When thinks like that happen, it generates belief and thatâs what we have.â
