Christian Eriksen says previous Tottenham sides would have lost 6-0 against Juventus following Tuesday’s nightmare start in Turin.
Spurs were 2-0 down within nine minutes against the Italian champions, but goals from Harry Kane and Eriksen saw them secure a memorable draw.
“Tottenham has become, compared to what it was when I came to what it is now, completely different,” Eriksen said after the game. (Quotes via ESPN.)
“That’s up to the manager, up to the players and the quality we have in the squad really.
“When I arrived here, the games against the top teams when you are 2-0 down after nine minutes, you’d lose 6-0.
“That’s the thing we’ve changed with this manager [and] with the players we have. Everyone has grown up and they are not going to lie down if they are 2-0 down.”
Many Spurs fans, including myself, were desperately worried when Juventus scored their second goal, but this team continues to surprise the fans in the best possible way.
