Tottenham Hotspur assistant boss Joao Sacramento has told the club’s official website that he was delighted with the way the squad celebrated Steven Bergwijn’s goal against Manchester City.

“Only the people who work with us every day knows how hard these guys work and how united they are,” the assistant boss said.
