"We had a bit of luck with the second goal, it was a lucky deflection, but it was the consequence of our determination. Tottenham can feel hard done-by but my team was able to turn around a situation that was really bad for us at one stage and they deserve a lot of respect."

He said that the team were still feeling the effects of Wednesday's game:

"Overall, our legs were not really there as some players were tired from Wednesday night. We had to dig in deep and kept going but that is the special strength of this team. They have mental strength and resolution.

"I was very concerned after an hour though. We had possession in the first-half but they had the chances. The positive thing is that we were only 1-0 down at half-time as they had two one-on-ones with Jens Lehmann, who did well."
