The goal that wasn\'t: Turkish referee Cuneyt Cakir looks on as Manchester City\'s Raheem Sterling celebrates scoring -- but the injury-time goal was ruled out by VAR for offside

Who's saying what after Tottenham reached the Champions League semi-finals on Wednesday with an away goals victory over Manchester City:

"It was unbelievable. My players are heroes."

-- Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino.

"The disappointment was massive but they changed the decision. That is why we love football."

-- Pochettino on a VAR decision which ruled out what would have been a Raheem Sterling last-gasp winner for City.

"It is cruel but it is what it is and we have to accept it."

-- City boss Pep Guardiola.

"I support VAR but maybe from one angle Fernando Llorente's goal is handball, maybe from the referee's angle it is not."

-- Guardiola on Tottenham's third goal which survived a VAR ruling despite suspicion of handball.

"I have never seen something like this. It was a very tough game, a very crazy game. It was madness."

-- Tottenham star Son Heung-min who scored twice in the 4-3 defeat at City but it was a result which allowed the Londoners to progress having win the first leg 1-0 last week.

"I think I must be one of the luckiest guys on the planet today. With the last one they scored, I thought it was over. Thank God the ref gave offside."

-- Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen who gave the ball away in the last moments which allowed Raheem Sterling to score what looked like a City winner. However, it was ruled out for offside.

"Thoughts at this time are with all those that don't like football."

-- Former England and Tottenham star Gary Lineker on Twitter

"Omggg! I love you boys!!!! #COYS #UCL."

-- Injured Tottenham player Harry Kane on Twitter
