Nuno Espirito Santo demands Spurs players forget their Champions League exploits.
The North London club who lost to Liverpool in the 2019 CL final will be playing their first Europa Conference League game against Rennes tonight.
The Portuguese coach believes this is the toughest match in the group stage,
“We looked at Rennes and analysed them as a team from the previous game and the game before,” Nuno said.
“We know we are going to find a tough match, a tough team, one that is very aggressive on the pressing, playing at home, we know it is going to be harder.
“We also have a lot of experience in Europe. The past doesn’t mean big things now, this is the present and we have to deal with the situation now and Rennes represent a tough, tough challenge for us and we have to raise up our standards.
“It is a realisation that this is the truth. The past doesn’t mean anything for us. What you did in football doesn’t mean anything. You have to challenge yourself every day – this is a message for life.”
