Tottenham Hotspur Assistant Head Coach Cristian Stellini has expressed his delight at his side’s win against Marseille in the UEFA Champions League this week.
Premier League club Tottenham got the better of Ligue 1 outfit Marseille 2-1 away from home in France in their final UEFA Champions League Group D game.
The win means that Spurs have finished top of Group D with 11 points from six matches, a point ahead of runners-up Eintracht Frankfurt.
Stellini told Tottenham’s official website: “I’m very proud because when you start a match in the way we started, it’s not easy to change.
“The crowd was very hot, Marseille had control of the game in the first half, and we never jumped up to press or create problems, and our energy was very low.
“We defended well, because they didn’t create a lot of chances. We changed the system in the second half and played much better, controlled the game and played a fantastic second half. We followed the process.”
Tottenham will return to action on Sunday when they take on Liverpool at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the Premier League.
Antonio Conte’s side can be backed at 10/1 on Betfair to win 2-1 against Liverpool.
