Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino believes that Ajax is the favourite for the diptych between the clubs in the semi-finals of the Champions League. The Argentine is on his guard, for the Locals.
“It is important that we show respect for Ajax. They have Real Madrid and Juventus defeated, which means that they are more favored than we. That is how it is,” said Pochettino on Thursday, a day after his team Manchester City had turned off.
“We need to be humble. No one had expected that we City would turn off. It gives us a lot of faith, but if you are not smart enough to deal with, can win you just weaken.”
