Pochettino on Atmosphere

I think for everyone it’s a new stadium and a different atmosphere. Of course all that we hear from here I think tomorrow we’re going to have a great experience. Red Star is a very good team. All the circumstances that were in London we’re not going to have here tomorrow. The last season we can see how Liverpool were defeated here, one of the best teams in Europe.

Of course we respect Red Star and have full respect. We’re going to show big respect but of course try to play in our best way, being ready to fight because the atmosphere is going to be great. I want to live and enjoy the experience because I hear many things about this stadium and the fans here at Red Star. It will be fantastic to be here and enjoy it.
