Wenger tried to sign Sancho for Arsenal, rules out Real Madrid move

Wenger tried to sign Sancho for Arsenal, rules out Real Madrid move

The forward, who scored for Spurs against Dortmund in the Champions League last night, spoke to "El Larguero".

There was also the small matter of scoring Tottenham's second goal to put them in control of the tie, darting across the face of goal to meet Serge Aurier's cross.

But goals in the 83rd and 86th minutes, by Jan Vertonghen and Fernando Llorente respectively, mean Lucien Favre's side have it all to do at the Westfalenstadion on March 5.

"My players are heroes". The manager prizes Winks's composure in pressure situations, his ability to set the tempo with his passing and against Dortmund he got the team moving.

It was an especially impressive success for Pochettino given he was without the injured Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Danny Rose and Ben Davies. Maybe today everyone will say it was a fantastic decision. The first half was hard. We are going to see a different Dortmund so we have got to be prepared for that. The timing of the first goal was very important, the cross was unreal, I didn't have to do anything, just touch the ball. That was a gift.

"It's not finished, we have to focus on the second game too".

Lucas Moura gave Tottenham an early spark when he latched onto Davinson Sanchez's header and smashed a volley just wide from the edge of the area.

Dortmund were without the services of talisman Marco Reus as Chelsea-bound Christian Pulisic was drafted into the attack.

Arsene Wenger revealed he tried to lure Jadon Sancho to Arsenal during his time in charge of the Premier League side.

Billed as one of the more exciting last-16 ties, the first leg started off a restrained affair as Spurs resolutely held back the Bundesliga leaders in the first half.

Despite being pushed back for much of the first half, Tottenham had refused to surrender and their perseverance was rewarded in the 47th minute. "There's no better way of doing that than beating Dortmund 3-0 at home".

And when the dust had settled on a memorable 3-0 win, nobody felt the elation more than him.
