Spurs have to be warriors to secure a Champions League spot - Son

Thu 08 April 2021 | 18:14

Tottenham have to fight hard to seal a finish in the Premier League top-four and the South Korean international is urging his team to excel.

Son Heung-min

believes

Tottenham

should summon the “warriors” spirit to earn themselves a spot in the

Champions League

.

Spurs are sixth on the

Premier League

table, three points adrift of

West Ham

who sit fourth and there are eight games left to play.

Jose Mourinho

’s side have been enduring a frustrating season, having been held to a 2-2 draw against Newcastle United in their latest outing and they will go against Manchester United on Sunday.

Son has met the target 18 times across all competitions for his side this season and has confidence in turning things around in the remainder of the campaign.

"

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,"

the South Korea star said.

"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."

When the 28-year-old was quizzed if Spurs could gain courage from their last season’s run, when they won five and drew two of their final eight games, he said:

"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 focused on that and we will try as hard as possible to get there."

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad have only managed to win one of their last eight league trips to Tottenham.
