Tottenham's Pochettino gets two-game ban for improper conduct

Paul Childs  Reuters

The Argentine, whose side reached the Champions League quarter-finals with a 1-0 win at Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, was sanctioned over the incident involving referee Mike Dean after last month's 2-1 Premier League loss at Burnley.

Their 3-0 victory over Dortmund was their first knockout victory since the beat Milan at the San Siro in 2011, closely followed by their second at the Signal Iduna Park.

Indeed, against only Chelsea has he scored more goals, although he has drawn a blank in his last two meetings with the Saints having netted in each of his first four.

"But now they're in the quarter finals, if they could get through to the next round of the competition at the new White Hart Lane, it would be awesome for the club".

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has repeatedly stated that he would rather move to the new stadium as soon as possible but the club has Wembley named as its venue on official paperwork.

Progression represents progress for Mauricio Pochettino's side, who went out to Juventus at this stage last season.

Any hope built up by Dortmund's first-half performance swiftly vanished after half-time, however, as Moussa Sissoko fed Kane with a first-time pass and the England striker confidently fired past Burki.

Asked about the Nadler investigation on Monday, Trump replied, "I cooperate all the time with everybody". There was no immediate comment from the White House and the Trump Organization on Nadler's remarks .

"I was talking yesterday with Daniel [Levy, the Spurs chairman] and he was very positive", Pochettino said.

"It's fantastic. Both clubs in the quarter-final is massive for English football and I hope Manchester City and Liverpool can be in the quarter-finals next week", Pochettino said in a press conference. "In the end that is football", Burki said. "Now we have to deliver in the next few weeks, it starts on Saturday".

Over the course of the two legs against Borussia Dortmund, Jan Vertonghen took the blows and did it his way.

"We fully deserved this".

Kane will take the headlines for his goal shortly after the interval, but goalkeeper Hugo Lloris deserves plaudits for repeatedly denying Marco Reus, Mario Gotze and Julian Weigl in the first half.

"Now we can enjoy, because it is a big achievement - we don't want to stop".
