Pochettino labels his Spurs players ‘superheroes’ after last draw with Everton

Mauricio Pochettino has labelled Tottenham’s players as ‘superheroes’ after they finished the season with a 2-2 draw to Everton.

Goals from Eric Dier and Christian Eriksen earned Pochettino’s side a point, with Spurs finishing the campaign in fourth place.

Pochettino hailed his side following the result, with the club now looking forward to a first ever Champions League final when they face Premier League rivals Liverpool on June 1.

Despite not making any signings this season, Spurs secured Champions League qualification for a fourth consecutive year, whilst also reaching the final of Europe’s premier competition for the first time in their history.

“I want to congratulate my players, they are superheroes,” Pochettino told the BBC.

“At the start of the season no one would believe. It’s a massive achievement, I feel so proud but we have not finished our season. We have three weeks to prepare for the final, which will be one of the most important games in our history.

“The characteristic of this season is never giving up. The team’s spirit has been fantastic.

The Argentine praised Tottenham’s progression to a first final of Europe’s premier competition as a ‘special moment’, with the Spurs boss having reflected on their stunning comeback win over Ajax in the last four.

“Now I realise it was a special moment, I am enjoying it now more than Wednesday night – there was a lot of emotion, that now you realise and I enjoy looking at the pictures and videos, you can appreciate every single moment.”
