Former Tottenham manager Glenn Hoddle was delighted with their 1-1 draw at Barcelona on Tuesday night

Lucas Moura’s 85th-minute equaliser at Camp Nou handed Spurs a point against the heavily fancied Barcelona to hold on to second-place in Group B after Inter Milan could only draw 1-1 against PSV Eindhoven.

It marked an incredible comeback for Spurs, who only had a point to their name after their opening three games in the Champions League.

Now Hoddle, who was submitted to the hospital in October due to a cardiac arrest, has taken the opportunity to make his first public statement since leaving the hospital last month.

“That just wasn’t good for my recovery!” Hoddle wrote on Twitter.

“But a great performance well done boys, deserved to win.”

Spurs will next face Burnley at home in the Premier League this Saturday before finding out who they face in the last-16 on Monday.
