Tottenham star, Lucas Moura, has revealed that the club’s boss, Mauricio Pochettino gave an inspirational speech at half-time to help inspire them to victory over Ajax.
Tottenham defeated Ajax 3-2 after a superb hat-trick from Moura.
Tottenham were beaten 1-0 from the first leg and Ajax’s captain Matthijs de Ligt scored after just five minutes in Amsterdam with Hakim Ziyech doubling the Dutch club’s lead to 3-0 on aggregate in the first half.
However, Moura said that a rousing speech from Pochettino at break had an impact on him and his team-mates.
They went on to win the clash on away goals as the tie finished 3-3 on aggregate.
“In the changing room, the gaffer said we need to score one goal,” Moura said to Spurs TV.
