Tottenham defender Alderweireld happy with Champions League group: Every team special

Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld is happy with their Champions League group draw.

Spurs have been grouped with PSV, Barcelona and Internazionale.

Alderweireld told De Telegraaf: "In one way or another, I always get big teams in the Champions League, because with Ajax we were once in a group with Real Madrid and Manchester City - and Borussia Dortmund came out of the so-called weak pot 4.

"Barcelona speaks for itself, Inter because of the beautiful stadium and the rich history and PSV to be able to return to the Netherlands.

"I did not see the match against BATE Borisov, but know that PSV played very well.

"From now on I will follow their games closely.

"Eindhoven is a good hour away from my birthplace Antwerp. Many peoplein the neighborhood want to make that ride to see me play."
