Lamela: Spurs started to believe after getting out of Champions League group

Erik Lamela is excited to be part of Tottenham's run to the Champions League final.

The former AS Roma star spoke to Sky Italia about this week's final against Liverpool.

Lamela said: "It was an incredible season for us, it seemed very difficult to get to the final at the beginning, we know how difficult this competition can be but after the group stage we started to believe it.

"The team had several problems, we missed several players but we never gave up. This is a unique opportunity, winning this final will bring us into history."

On manager Mauricio Pochettino, Lamela added: "I don't like to talk much about coaches, but for Tottenham he is fundamental, the results say it, I don't say so."
