Olympiakos vs Tottenham: What has been said?

Mauricio Pochettino: “It was a long period after the final in Madrid and of course being honest I was thinking a lot during the summer. Losing in the final, always you can’t put out the feeling.

“You have to wait until you start again. It’s another massive challenge for us.

“Exciting to start a new campaign and here in Greece. It’s going to be an unbelievable atmosphere as well.

“It’s so early to start talking about the final. The most important thing is to talk about our squad quality.

“I don’t care if because we reached the final people think we are a contender again. It’s only to try to be focused tomorrow on trying to win and starting in a good way.”
