Tottenham and Manchester advanced to Europa League Round of 16
With the win, both English clubs advance to the next round of the Europa League.
Tottenham 3-0 Fiorentina
Coach Pochetitno reacts:
“I’m very proud of the players. It was a very good performance and a good job done. We created a lot of chances and didn’t concede chances ourselves and when you are playing a team that is right at the top in Italy, that’s full credit to our players.
The fitness levels are fantastic and we showed great energy, willingness and always tried to press Fiorentina. This is a very good team but after this second leg we showed we were better and fully deserved to go into the next round.”
Manchester 5-1 Midtjylland
Coach van Gall reacts:
“It was a great performance and I think the fans will have enjoyed our attacking football. I believe they crossed the middle line for the first time when they scored. Normally you get a decline in confidence, but it was not like that as we scored, but missed a penalty – unbelievable! Still we kept going and going so I must give great compliment to my players because it is not so easy to do that.
It is unbelievable, how the spirit of the team is. I hope that the fans shall have enjoyed this game as there has been a lot of spectacular football – there were a lot of attacking situations. It is unbelievable too when you see this in advance of the match when we lose Anthony Martial. At the end, 5-1 with many youngsters in the team is fantastic.”
