It was not just the result but it was the performance. I went through the messages I got; it was a game where the football world showed respect.
I had a feeling everyone had tried to get my number and wrote me a message. I read a few of them and went to bed. It was unbelievable.

After 35 minutes Hakim Ziyech adds Ajax's second on the night and third on aggregate. Half-time and Spurs are reeling. Pochettino has to give the team talk of his life.
