Ever wondered what it would be like for a Spurs fan to play for the Club in the Champions League? Let Harry Winks tell you...

“It’s brilliant, the best moment ever, it’s a dream come true and I loved every minute,” said the young midfielder after his Champions League debut in the 1-0 win at CSKA Moscow. “For me, I just want more.

“Every time I play it is a dream come true because I’m a Spurs fan as well, ever since I was five years old in the Academy all I wanted to do was play for Spurs and every appearance I get is a dream, it genuinely is, and I like to emphasise that.”

Once again, Mauricio Pochettino put his trust in the 21-year-old. Leading 1-0 in a crucial fixture in Group E, ‘Winksy’ came on for Dele Alli with 10 minutes remaining and did exactly what he was asked to do, provide more defensive cover and help make the team more compact as we successfully saw out the game.

It came just a week after making his first Spurs start an another impressive display against Gillingham in the EFL Cup.

He added: “It was special and for me it was about going out there, enjoying every minute, soaking up the experience and learning from it all and I did exactly that.”
