Tottenham came from behind to beat Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night.
Tottenham icon David Ginola has heaped praise on his former side when speaking on TalkSPORT after the north Londoners immediately bounced back from their derby defeat to beat Borussia Dortmund.
Mauricio Pochettino's side suffered a surprise 2-0 loss to Arsenal on Saturday at the Emirates Stadium, with many pundits stating beforehand that they expected to see the Gunners struggle.
However, second-half goals from Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min saw Spurs turn the tie on its head and secure top spot in Group H, seeing off Dortmund as well as Real Madrid and APOEL Nicosia.
Former Spurs ace Ginola told TalkSPORT on Wednesday morning that he was impressed with Spurs' calmness when going 1-0 down, when it could have been easy to panic - stating he "loved the way they managed the game".
"You can see that the team are going to a different level because they had a bad result against Arsenal - the enemy - but they were able to forget it, put that bad memory aside and step forward," Ginola said.
"Last night, they were 1-0 down and they just played football [and thought] 'OK, no worries, we are going to come back into the game' and that is exactly what they did. It was brilliant. I loved the way they managed the game.
"They are above Real Madrid so what a move [forward] from Spurs."
Spurs have won four out of their five Champions League outings this season, beating APOEL, Real and Dortmund twice, a huge contrast to their disappointing efforts last season which saw them knocked out of the group stage.
Now, focus will turn to Saturday as Pochettino prepares his players to face managerless West Brom in the Premier League.
