FA suspends Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham can be proud of reaching the Champions League quarter-finals but manager Mauricio Pochettino believes they must still improve to take on Europe's heavyweights.

Alderweireld insisted they are desperate to play their quarterfinal at the new stadium - and that could be crucial as the club battle to be ready on time.

"We knew one goal would kind of kill the game off but they were going to keep attacking and pushing players forward". Sometimes the stadium wasn't full because the maximum on the capacity.

"I expect to play at the new stadium".

It had more than 70 percent possession as Spurs pulled back, but after half an hour the best chance fell to the visitors when Son Heung-min, who scored once in the first leg, fired wide after breaking clear with only keeper Roman Buerki to beat.

Mauricio Pochettino's men coped admirably in Kane's five-week absence with an ankle injury and his comeback actually coincided with a downturn in form as defeats to Burnley and Chelsea ended outside hopes of an assault at the Premier League title.

And England captain Kane ensured there would be no hope of a memorable comeback with a clinical one-on-one finish in the 48th minute to secure a 4-0 aggregate triumph.

"We need to forget the first leg, it's important to be aggressive, fight from the beginning, high tempo, that is going to be the key".

"It was fantastic, job done", Pochettino added.

"The team works hard and if he has a chance, especially in big European nights, we need him to score those goals".

Kane is now Tottenham's all-time leading goalscorer in European competition, with 24 strikes, and Pochettino said: "I'm so happy".

"If we are not going to receive help from our football people in our country, only I can laugh".

'You have to be strong when needed, ' said Alderweireld.

High-profile mistakes from Lloris almost saw Spurs eliminated in the group stages, but when they needed their captain to stand tall to Dortmund's first-half bombardment the French goalkeeper refused to be beaten. They had nothing to lose and were taking a lot of risks.

"I think if we would have scored one goal in London the situation would have been completely different".

Spurs fans were well aware of the contribution their experienced defender made in the victory, and were quick to praise him after the final whistle went in Germany, with many of them highlighting not just his performance on the evening, but his worth to their side overall.
