Only whole team Juventus can stop Kane: Chiellini

Share

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has told centre-half Toby Alderweireld that he would be placing the Belgium defender's career in peril if he were to select him for Tuesday's Champions League last-16 clash with Juventus.

However, the Belgian worldwide was absent against the Gunners on Saturday and has been left in London ahead of the Champions League clash with the Italian giants in Turin, and Pochettino has claimed that he is trying to show "common sense" over the player's fitness.

"Stopping Kane, just me alone, is pretty impossible", said 33-year-old six-time Serie A victor Chiellini.

"I am so excited to be here for almost four years now, developing a very nice project and I think we have a very nice project ahead". That makes for great press clippings, but the reality is Pochettino would be more than happy to return to North London with one away goal and one point in his pocket. They haven't reached this level by chance.

He would not find it easy against Juventus' defence, led by legendary goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, 40, and rugged defender Giorgio Chiellini, 33. "My first start for England probably the first five minutes he made a challenge and I probably had a dead leg for 10 minutes".

However, some good news for Tottenham is Argentine worldwide Paulo Dybala is expected to miss both fixtures due to a hamstring injury. "We've just got to believe and take each game as it comes and see what happens".

Tottenham are away for the first leg with the game taking place at the Juventus Stadium in Turin, Italy.

And, once more when Tottenham needed him, Kane responded with a goal.

Kane missed a glorious chance to end Juventus clean sheet record of eight when his close range header was saved by Gianlugi Buffon in the 26th minute of the encounter.

"I feel so proud". "Don't think that I won't be sleeping, because I can assure you I will be sleeping tonight".

If Spurs are to achieve a positive result this evening, you suspect Mousa Dembele will have an important part to play.

But the Argentine is hoping to pull off another upset after topping Real Madrid in the group stages.

"I think we deserved more against Liverpool, but we only took the draw and the performance of the team is good and we are doing a fantastic job and I'm so pleased".

"It's an exciting match for us that we want to enjoy, tomorrow we want to play with great freedom and enjoy it".
