Tottenham player Davinson Sanchez attended the pre-match press conference against Linz. He said: "I hope to get back the feeling when Wiltonghen led us.
"Since I came to the team, I have been observing which of the 11 starting players behaves normally. Everyone remembers the combination of Aldweirelder and Vertonghen. They have brought me a lot of learning. Because we play in the same club."
"When Dale came on the field, he was also helping me. Now, this is a good event. There is no doubt that we are all trying to help the team."
"We still remember Vertonghen because he is our important leader. We have improved a lot when we stand alongside him. Now, we have to work hard to take the club in the direction he wants."
"In the last 10 minutes of the game, we can't repeat that performance or score goals for the opponent. It has nothing to do with the opponent's strength. Every opponent can do this."
"We have enough experienced players, they have always had a high level of strength. Therefore, it is difficult to accept that kind of game."
"Anyone can encounter something like that, but we have enough experience to move on, and then we have to focus on tomorrow's game."
