'Madrid The Best Team In The World'

Mauricio Pochettino must put aside his admiration for Zinédine Zidane when Tottenham face Real Madrid, who have been the best team in the world of late according to the Spurs boss.

Tottenham make the daunting trip to the Santiago Bernabéu for a showdown with the Champions League holders in Group H on Tuesday.

"Madrid have been the best team in the world in the last few years," Pochettino told beIN Sports.

"They've proved that and, honestly, I have a certain weakness for Zinedine Zidane, as a footballer and now."
