Jose Mourinho On Mauricio Pochettino Crying After Historic Comeback

But a goal by Lucas Moura in the last minute of injury time put paid to the Dutch hopes, leaving an all England final ahead.

"To have the chance to play a final is awesome". City, first in the league, we beat them.

Mauricio Pochettino wept tears of joy as the emotional Tottenham manager hailed "super-hero " Lucas Moura for the incredible hat-trick that fired Tottenham into their first Champions League final. One more unanswered away goal would send Spurs to the final, and just when it looked like Ajax was going to survive the late rally, Moura came through one more time.

"That's why I ran over there because it was straight and I didn't cut any corners".

Spurs pulled off a remarkable comeback on Wednesday, as they dramatically triumphed 3-2 at the Johan Cruyff ArenA to reach the Champions League final on away goals after a 3-3 aggregate draw.

With veteran Spanish striker Fernando Llorente on as a second-half substitute, Tottenham refused to lay down and when Moura scored in the 55th minute the impossible began to seem possible for the north London club.

But an eagle-eyed WWE fan may have caught HHH red-handed after looking at his "likes" section on his official Twitter page. But he was hell-bent on fulfilling some "unfinished business" on the flagship show and confirmed his appearance.

"But we have been fighting for this, it is a dream to be in the final".

"Spurs played with a great deal of intensity, and that caused us a lot of problems, particularly in the second half". Emulating Gini Wijnaldum on Tuesday, Moura hit a quickfire double to level the second leg.

"I told the players it is very hard to find the right words in a moment like this and that football is cruel", said Ten Hag, whose team will now inevitably be broken up without having the chance to grace the biggest stage in the club game.

"The lads dug deep and showed passion and that is all you can ask for". We were so close to the final ... and then the ball goes in.

"Sometimes they don't know what we are behind the scenes". We had to wait to get the third in the last minute and we found a way.

I think this is a manifestation of all of that together.
