Tottenham Hotspur players talked to the press about how they felt advancing to the next round of the UEFA Champions League.

Tottenham Hotspur defeated Borussia Dortmund 4-0 on aggregate, advancing to the UEFA Champions League Quarterfinals.

The English Premier League footballers have talked to the press, saying the ambition of the team is big now.

“It’s fantastic, but we are ambitious, we want to play in this competition 100 per cent and we will see. The important thing is to keep the belief and be ready to push to our limits,” goalkeeper Hugo Lloris said to the club’s official website.

“We don’t want to stop at this stage. We all want to compete against the best teams. The main thing is to get the top four again (in the Premier League) to qualify the club for the fourth time in a row in the Champions League and then to enjoy this competition.”

“Everything is possible if you believe and have the right mentality. We have already proved last season against Real Madrid and Dortmund, this season against Inter or Barca away, that we are ready to compete, then you need a little luck and team spirit,” he commented.

“Now is the moment to enjoy and then keep the focus because Saturday is a very important game in the Premier League at Southampton.”

“We always want more and that’s our mentality, always,” teammate Eric Dier added.

“We’ve got to this point as a team because of our competitiveness individually and as a collective and now we want to win the next game, which is Southampton (on Saturday), the game after that and then the quarter-final when it arrives.”

“We just have to keep fighting, keep working hard as a team, improving and hopefully we can do that. I was just delighted to be back and to be part of it,” he commented.

“It’s a massive achievement for the club and we should be very proud. We want to keep pushing. As professional athletes, we want to keep getting better. That’s what the gaffer will tell us and that’s what we’ve got to try to do.”
