Dier insists Tottenham squad can handle long Champions League run

Eric Dier insists Tottenham's squad can handle a long Champions League run.

Dier insists Spurs proved last season that they can cope with fighting on multiple fronts after taking the title race down to the last fortnight of the season and reaching the Europa League last 16.

He said: “Last year we coped with the Europa League very well and that was even tougher with having to play on a Thursday.

“We've got a very good squad and everyone is very positive about it.

“The experience of playing for England will help the Spurs players in the Champions League. We are really looking forward to it and it's going to be fantastic for us.

“After the Euros and the Europa League last season, it's sort of a natural progression to play in the Champions League and the squad is ready for it."
