​Mourinho confident Spurs ready to challenge Barcelona, PSG

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho believes that his side are ready to challenge the top teams in Europe.

Spurs are in the knockout stages of the competition already, despite having a game to play against Bayern Munich in the group stages.

And Mourinho believes that if they can get a favourable draw, they can go deep into the competition.

"We are qualified. We are in the knock out. The fact we are second diminishes the possibility a little bit in the last 16. We play second match away, against a group winner, clubs like Barcelona , PSG… the best will be waiting for us, it's going to be difficult for us," said Mourinho to reporters ahead of the Bayern game.

"And I think it's going to be difficult for them. In the quarter final, when everybody in the same basket, that is the moment everybody has the same chances, the big big big big step is the first knock out."
