Mauricio Pochettino hailed his side's 'mission impossible' turnaround in the Champions League as Tottenham secured qualification from Group B following Tuesday night's draw at the Nou Camp.
The Spurs boss denied stating qualification would be impossible, despite having only picked up one point from their first three group games this year.
After seeing his side score a dramatic late equaliser against Barcelona on Tuesday night, the Argentinian tactician enjoyed the post-match celebrations, stating it felt like they had achieved 'something special'.
“It was difficult to manage the last 10 minutes. The players who came on knew the result in Inter. But you must win the game, try to score the second goal but if you concede and lose, 2-1 to Barcelona and we are talking in a different way. It was difficult for the players to manage. But the effort was fantastic.”
The games are coming thick and fast for Tottenham during this notoriously hectic month of the year and will have to recover from their European exploits before Saturday's Premier League tie against Burnley.
