Son: Spurs deserve to beat Juventus

Son: Spurs deserve to beat Juventus

08 Mar 2018, 09:00

Tottenham attacker Son Heung-min insisted his team's performance against Juventus on Wednesday deserved more than a loss. 

Son opened the scoring on the night, but his side suffered a 2-1 loss to bow out 4-3 on aggregate in the last 16. Goals from Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala in a three-minute span saw Juve complete a stunning second-half comeback at Wembley, with Spurs unable to respond.

However, Son believes those results were irrelevant after Spurs exited the Champions League, with the 25-year-old feeling his side were unlucky to be out of the competition.

“It doesn't matter when we beat Real Madrid or Dortmund, it doesn't matter.Juventus is another good team, and another top team in Europe. I think we played very well – better than them, Said Son.

The loss ended Tottenham's run in Europe after two wins over Borussia Dortmund and a victory over Madrid in group stage had the club looking like a contender.
