Tottenham boss Pochettino cannot imagine Champions League at Wembley

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has said that he is finding it hard to imagine his players playing Champions League football at Wembley Stadium in front of 90,000 fans.

The North London club are set to play their Champions League games at Wembley this season while work continues on new developments at White Hart Lane.

Spurs will face Ligue 1 side Monaco in their first group game on Wednesday night and Pochettino admits it still feels like a bit of a dream.

"It is difficult to describe the feeling because when we were training with a Champions League ball, with the Champions League logo on our kit, it was exciting for everyone," he said.

"Then at Wembley there will be nearly 90,000 fans. I cannot imagine what it will be like when we walk down the tunnel to the pitch. It will be an emotional moment."
