"Had they not gone through, I would have said they may as well have stayed at Wembley for the rest of their league games".
But, when asked if Spurs expect to be in their rebuilt White Hart Lane stadium for the quarter-final home leg, Pochettino bizarrely became very agitated and criticised those running English football. "It was a tough game but a fantastic result and to be in the quarter-final was our objective".
Spurs will discover who their quarter-final opponents are when the draw is made on March 15, with the two-legged tie to be held in the second and third weeks of April.
"I am so happy, you know very well my emotion with him", he told a news conference. "I'm not going to ask [for a personal hearing]", Pochettino said after the incident. 'Maybe the team of a couple of years ago would concede and then it's much more hard so we are making steps forward.
Former Spurs and England striker Gary Lineker, meanwhile, felt it was a foregone conclusion when Kane bore down on Burki in the 49th minute, tweeting: "There are players that go through one-on-one with the 'keeper and you know they'll score".
They had more than 70 percent possession as Spurs pulled back, but after half an hour the best chance fell to the visitors when Son Heung-min, who scored once in the first leg, fired wide after breaking clear with only keeper Roman Buerki to beat.
Considering Tottenham nearly lost their third game in a row last weekend, that is one big turnaround from Pochettino and a group of players he has regularly called "heroes" this season. You need to take more responsibility and care about that.
"Two disappointing results in a week, this was the ideal game, a north London derby to show passion and show fans we are ready to fight for the rest of the season", said Kane, who scored their penalty equaliser against Arsenal.
"Beating Dortmund would show we're growing in Europe and becoming a bigger team", he said.
