Son Heung-Min Disappointed With Champions League Exit

South Korea international Son Heung-Min expressed his disappointment after Tottenham Hotspur were knocked out of this season’s Champions League. The north London club had been in a solid position to qualify for the quarter-final stage after they put in a solid performance in the first-leg of their round of 16 tie at Juventus – which ended in a 2-2 draw.


Son enhanced the club’s chances further by netting the opener during the second-leg, but this was not sufficient as Juventus came from behind to pick up a 2-1 victory. The triumph ensured that the Bianconeri progressed with a 4-3 aggregate scoreline, and Son has admitted that there is a sense of unhappiness within the squad.
