SPURS vs BAYER LEVERKUSEN
Q: Tottenham's style of play is very similar to Leverkusen's, it's very fast and it's direct: what are you expecting from this game?
A: "Yes, that's correct. In fact our coach was in the stadium for Tottenham against Manchester City. He flew in to watch the game and came back fascinated by Tottenham and how they played against Manchester City.
"Just as we try to do, they knock the opponent off their stride by putting pressure on, by pressing, by forcing mistakes and winning the second ball and then attacking the opposition at lightening speed. That makes Tottenham unbelievably good and so it's a real hurdle for us.
"We have real respect for Tottenham."
