Son Heung-min has revealed that the Tottenham players believe that they can finish the season strongly and are determined to get back into the Champions League.
There has been a lot of negativity surrounding Spurs of late, particularly after the club were dumped out of the Europa League in humiliating fashion by Dinamo Zagreb last month.
The Lilywhites have actually been in a decent run of form in the Premier League, having won four and drawn one of their last six Premier League games.
However, it seems as though a meltdown from Spurs fans is always just around the corner as evidenced by some of the reactions after Tottenham’s 2-2 draw against Newcastle on Sunday.
Despite the negativity, this season could still turn out to be a successful one for the Lilywhites, who sit just three points off fourth spot with eight league games remaining and also with a Carabao Cup final to look forward to.
When asked about the aims for the remainder of the season, Son told the club’s official website: “I’m a really positive guy, we’re three points behind the top four and, let’s be honest, it would have been even better if we’d won the points against Newcastle, but we didn’t and that’s really sad.
“We’ve nine games left with the cup final, and we have to be ready, we have to be warriors, that’s very important for the rest of the season.”
There have been rumours of discontent among the Tottenham players this week but Son insisted that he and his teammates fully believe that they can get into the Champions League.
He added: “Yes, we are in a slightly better position than last season.
“We’re three points off the top four, it’s tight and we all want to play in the Champions League next season, that’s our aim, that’s the Club’s aim, the fans’ aim as well.
“That’s what we all want. We’re all focussed on that and we will try as hard as possible to get there.”
