Former Barcelona midfielder Ronaldinho has made a bold claim about what Tottenham Hotspur have on the way in the Champions League this season after their memorable victory over Manchester City last Tuesday.
Spurs have opened their new stadium with three straight victories, with the latest triumph coming against Huddersfield Town in the Premier League last weekend.
With only a few games left in the league campaign, Spurs are still in the driving seat to finish in the top three but there could be bigger things on the way before this season ends.
Tottenham are going into the second leg of the Champions League tie against Manchester City with the advantage after a fine 1-0 win at home last Tuesday.
If they manage to finish off the job on Wednesday evening, Spurs would have knocked out one of the favourites to win the European crown this season.
And that is why Ronaldinho is now tipping Tottenham to actually go all the way and win the Champions League this year.
“Why can’t Spurs win the Champions League.? Because they don’t have the history in the competition or because they have never won it before? Every team who has won the Champions League had to win it for the first time once.” Ronaldinho said, as quoted by the Evening Standard
“Their result against Manchester City, who are one of the best teams and have some of the best players in the competition, showed that they can compete with the best.
“At this stage they will believe they can go all the way — and if they play as they can then maybe they will.”
