Mauricio Pochettino has merely hours to get his preparation right for the Champions League final. But it’s Death, Taxes and Pre-match press conferences so that everyone knows what’s happening.
Daniel Levy- Tottenham Hotspur’s club President is not often in the headlines unless it’s for transfer negotiations. However, the Spurs Chairman is really emotional before the biggest night in the club’s history(arguably).
He was there with the players to express his emotions and how proud he is of this bunch of players for achieving something really nobody credited them for. The chairman was at Spurs’ training facility to deliver a heartfelt message to the squad.
Since it wasn’t covered by any cameras, manager Pochettino is tasked with telling us what the chairman had to say. If Pochettino is using Levy’s words, we’re in dreamland. Here’s what Pochettino says about Daniel Levy’s speech:
“Some of the players said: ‘It’s amazing, Daniel is more human!’
“It’s a side he never showed too much. He was always more distant, trying to keep the emotion inside.

Tottenham will play the first all England UCL final in 11 years. The last it was the Moscow final of 2008 between Chelsea and Manchester United. These days, United find it hard to qualify for Europa.
Mauricio Pochettino has received some injury boosts lately, with several of his key players returning from long absences. Chief among those returning are Harry Kane and Dele Alli. Spurs should have a full roster available for selection in Madrid.
