​Tottenham boss Pochettino: I'm still dreaming of Champions League glory

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino insists he has not given up on his dream of winning the Champions League.

Pochettino was not in the best spirits, given his side's 2-1 defeat at home to Juventus, which sees them knocked out in the last 16 of the competition.

Spurs were 1-0 up, but two second half goals from Gonzalo Higuain and Paolo Dybala swung the tie in Juventus' favor.

"A nightmare? Why? That is football," Pochettino said to Sky Sports after the match.

"I am still a dreamer. Of course I am disappointed, when you compete in the Champions League and against this type of club, you can win or you can lose.

"We lost but in the way that we lost, I am happy. For me football is not a nightmare. You can win or lose.

"We respect our idea and we play football and we created a lot of chances but it wasn't enough to win the game. That is all."
