Louis Saha states bold prediction about Tottenham’s Europa League chances
Louis Saha fancies his former club Tottenham Hotspur to go deep in the Europa League this season
Louis Saha believes Tottenham Hotspur have a great chance to win the Europa League this season.
Spurs booked their place in the Europa League last-16 draw thanks to a 4-1 aggregate win against Fiorentina at White Hart Lane on Thursday night.
Tottenham were rewarded with a last-16 clash against Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund, with the first and second legs taking place on 10 and 17 March.
Speaking to ITV Sport ahead of Friday’s last-16 draw, former Spurs striker Saha talked up the potential of Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
“They show a real team spirit. Sometimes you wonder if they can go all the way. They have the youth and the legs. They have confidence. I love them. I expect them to really challenge,” Saha told ITV Sport.
Spurs midfielder Ryan Mason made the breakthrough in the 25th minute as the England international put Mauricio Pochettino’s side 2-1 ahead on aggregate.
Former Roma midfielder Erik Lamela added a second for the north London side before Fiorentina skipper Gonzalo Rodriguez scored an own goal in the second half.
