Tottenham Hotspur star Son Heung-Min has spoken out on Champions League quarterfinal matches against Manchester City.
Spurs beat Pep Guardiola’s side 1-0 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium due to South Korea international’s goal. The second leg became one of the most dramatic and crazy matches in the history of the league, when clubs scored 4 goals in starting 15 minutes. Son scored 2 vital goals at Etihad Stadium, which then was followed by Fernando Llorente’s vital goal and late VAR drama, that knocked Manchester City out.
Spurs then also produced one of the best comebacks in the history of Champions League after beating Ajax Amsterdam at Johan Cruyff arena due to Lucas Moura’s incredible hat-trick.
“Of course, it was a difficult, tough opponent – one of the best teams in the world. Of Course we are strong as well, but it was a very, very tough game. It was the greatest moment for me this season,” Son told Tottenham’s official website.
“I have a lot of good memories, but especially these games.
“I think the pass from Eriksen was brilliant. I missed the first touch, but I didn’t give up, I just tried to play on and and it didn’t go out luckily. Luckily the ball was inside and I’m really happy and still I have in my head these memories. It was just unbelievable and I’m really grateful for the amazing performance from the team and amazing supporters.
“The second game was the craziest game I’ve ever seen because we were 1-0 down after five minutes. And then three minutes later we scored two goals. That 10 minutes felt like 90 minutes.
“I think again we did an amazing job and that’s why we are still here. We can do it. This is what I’ve learnt from all campaign and we are strong” he added.
