He showed flashes of his quality in Dortmund's 3-0 first-leg loss to Tottenham in the Champions League last 16 at Wembley on Wednesday. "There was pressure on him to decide what to do and he wanted to go on play first team football", he added.

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits they tried to sign Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

Pochettino also warned that, despite the fact they will take a 3-0 lead to Dortmund on March 5, Tottenham can not take their progression for granted. 'He was fantastic again. It was an awesome result and the players deserve massive praise but we need to think that it's going to be tough to play over there.

"He is one of the best players of his generation, he can dribble, he has the arrogance - look at the boy, there is something in there that is part of the big players. They win the possibility to have a few days off", he said.

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen capped his own powerful performance when he swept in their second goal in the closing stages and substitute Fernando Llorente's late third put the seal on a remarkable result.

"The first half was very hard, first of all because we never felt the confidence to play", said Pochettino post match. He's a player who provides the team with a lot of very good things. "He translates good energy and his performance in every game is improving".

As they did in the first period, Spurs began the second-half on the front foot.

"Today it's 3-0 and maybe everyone says, "Oh, fantastic decision", or maybe if it's a different result I'm the worst coach in the world", he said.

Pochettino was keen to praise 21-year-old defender Juan Foyth, who made only his second Champions League appearance and helped to deny Dortmund an away goal.

Mauricio said: "I'm so happy but it's only the first leg and we need to finish the job".

Yet Skomina called for a VAR check and after a number of replays, ruled that Tadic had been standing in an offside position when the goal was scored.
