Souness: Spurs shouldn’t be in the Champions League final
Graeme Souness doesn’t think Tottenham deserve to be in the Champions League final against Liverpool.
Spurs battled through to the final against all the odds to beat both Ajax and Manchester City on away goals but Souness points to the amount of games Spurs have lost to make his case.
Souness believes that Mauricio Pochettino’s side have been “fortunate” and that barely any of their side would get into Liverpool’s.
“Spurs shouldn’t be there,” Souness told Balls.ie. “You say to anyone at the start of the season a team is going to lose 19 games in all competitions, and yet they’ll find themselves in the final of Champions League, you’d say you are talking nonsense.
“But they’ve somehow got themselves there, and I think they are fortunate to be there.
“I think another way to look at it, I’m looking at it through the eyes mostly, of a Liverpool supporter, and I’d pose a question, if you were picking a team from the 22 players that were going to start the game, how many Spurs players would be in that 11?
“I’m thinking as we’re standing here, Eriksen possibly in midfield, and Harry Kane, then you’ve got nine Liverpool players. But the minute you try and attach any logic to a game of football, you come unstuck.”
