Julian Nagelsmann, Leipzig coach: “Spurs is very nice and exciting! They are a top team in Europe, in a fantastic city, with world stars who have experienced a lot. Of course, it won’t be easy. But we are really looking forward to it – especially the stadium.”
Manuel Neuer, Bayern goalkeeper: “We watched the draw with the team. We are looking forward to London. We’ve had some great experiences there. Of course, you think of the final 2012 in Munich. They are a dangerous team, which we have to take seriously. We have to deliver a highly focused performance but want to move on to the next round.”

Rudi Garcia, Lyon coach: “It’s a great challenge, a real pleasure to host them. We’re in the top 16 teams in Europe. Miralem Pjanić is a person with great quality, incredibly skilled. He is a big strength of Juventus. Happy to welcome Maurizio Sarri. He is a very good coach, with a lot of experience.”
Former Tottenham defender King, speaking to Sky Sports: “Having reached the final last year, the players will want to go as far as possible again. So will José Mourinho.”
Antonio Percassi, Atalanta president: “The draw could have been worse. In my opinion, Valencia was the best possible option for us to deal with, then we’ll see how it goes.”
Pavel Nedvěd, former Juventus player: “We can’t complain, considering that last year we drew Atlético, but if you’re not in form when the Champions League comes back around between February and March, there is little that you can do. The precedents are favorable to us, but they do not count for anything, only the form in the moment counts.”
