‘Tottenham and PSG lacked history’ – Chiellini explains why Spurs and Paris fail

Juventus legend Giorgio Chiellini claimed Tottenham bottled it after knocking them out of the Champions League.

The Italian giants scored twice in the space of two minutes and 49 seconds to stun Mauricio Pochettino and Chiellini insisted it was because Tottenham lack a trophy winning mentality.

Veteran defender Chiellini said: “Tottenham, it’s the history of the Tottenham. They always create many chances and score so much but in the end they miss always something to arrive at the end.

“We believe in the history. Also yesterday in the game between Real Madrid and Paris, the history it’s important and the experience is important and tonight we used our skill and arrive at the win.

“Tottenham are on the verge of being able to win this type of game. Sometimes you just need that spark, maybe a trophy win, but we had our experience and made the most of it in these circumstances.”
