Fernando Llorente believes the referee was right to award his goal against Manchester City on Wednesday night.
The striker scored Tottenham’s third goal to send the visitors through to the Champions League semi-finals.
The ball appeared to brush off Llorente’s arm before hitting his hip and finding its way into the back of the net.
A lengthy VAR check ensued but the referee eventually awarded the goal, and Llorente thinks the man in charge made the right decision.
“I feel very good, it’s unbelievable what you feel in that moment,” Llorente said (via Sky Sports).
“It was a little bit difficult when the referee was watching the goal, but I think it was a goal. I am very happy to help the team.
“It’s a dream. It’s an unbelievable team and group, and I believe in all the team. I believe we can make history this year. This is our moment.”
Llorente came on as a substitute towards the end of the first half following an injury to Moussa Sissoko.
The Spaniard hardly affected the game but his goal turned out to be the decisive moment – we gave him a 6/10 in our player ratings, which you can read here.
There was more VAR drama at the death when Raheem Sterling’s late strike was ruled out for offside after huge celebrations from the City players, staff and fans.
It’s a night that won’t be forgotten any time soon.
