Spurs star admits that Tuesday night left him feeling hurt

Most Spurs fans reacted in shock and disbelief when the game against Bayern Munich was unfolding in midweek.

While Spurs started the game well and looked the better side in the first 30 minutes, the visitors produced a masterclass in finishing and made Mauricio Pochettino’s men pay for their lacklustre defending in the second half.

Tottenham forward Heung-Min Son has admitted that just like the fans, he had a hard time believing what was unfolding in front of his eyes on Tuesday.

Speaking to the club’s official website, the South Korean said, “I was hurt, just like the fans. I felt that pain. It was a bad result and I didn’t want to believe it.

“I was thinking ‘please, is this just a bad dream?’ but what can we do now? It was so disappointing, sad, everything negative, but we have to carry on.”

However, the 27-year-old, who scored the first goal of the game on Tuesday, insisted that the team is capable of turning their form around. He stressed the importance of staying together and working hard against Brighton on Saturday.

The pacey forward added: “Football can change so quickly. We have a game every three days and I believe we can turn it around.

“We’re together and we carry on, work harder. The best way is to go to Brighton and fight for every ball, fight in every situation, try to get a good result and bring home the three points.”

With Spurs taking to the field before their other top 6 rivals once again this weekend, three points against Brighton could see the Lilywhites climb to the third spot in the table.

I think Pochettino will certainly expect a response from the players after the humiliation on Tuesday. It is fair to say that anything less than three points against Brighton will not do anything to diminish the scrutiny Pochettino and the team are under. Let’s hope the team’s confidence hasn’t been completely shattered after Tuesday.

Son could have easily have had a hat-trick in the opening half-hour against Bayern, on another day we could have been 2-0 or 3-0 ahead.
