Tottenham Hotspur star Son Heung-Min has said that losing the Champions League final would be painful. The Lilywhites have a golden opportunity to end their 11-year trophy drought in style as they are due to play in the final of Europe’s Premier Club competition against English rivals Liverpool.
Spurs who played out to a 2-2 draw during their final game of the Premier League season against Everton made a return to training on Wednesday ahead of the Champions League final.
“I don’t want to talk about winning or losing. There’s a long time to prepare for this important game,” he said.
“Winning the Champions League means a lot, but losing would be painful for a long, long time. We just want to be ready and then we will see what happens. Liverpool are a strong team, so how we play will be important,” he told the Evening Standard.
Son will be looking to regain form. In spite of being one of the best Spurs players, he has not found the back of the net during his last five appearances.
