Son Heung-min sets trophy target for Spurs

Tottenham forward Son Heung-min is desperate to help his side end their wait for silverware in the coming campaign. Spurs fell just short in their bid for a trophy last season as they lost the Champions League final to Liverpool.

The north Londoners are yet to win a title under manager Mauricio Pochettino and their last success came in the 2007-08 season when they claimed the League Cup. Spurs were involved in the Premier League title fight in the first half of last season and moved into second spot in late December. However, their form tailed off in the latter stages of the campaign and they finished in fourth spot.

Tottenham are 15.00 to win the Premier League outright next year and Son is eager to get his hands on some silverware as he prepares for his fifth season with the club.

“Winning a trophy has always been tough, for example, we are playing in the Premier League to win the title with 20 teams, it’s never been easy,” he said in a video published by BT Sport. “Of course we are trying to win something but we can’t promise and because of that we are working hard.

“I think we deserve more than any other players because of how we work, when I see the players and how they work and how they’ve been professional, it’s been just amazing and I’m so proud of this team. “But until now we don’t have anything and it’s always been tough but you’re looking forward to any success.” He added:

“We are looking forward to this season and I’m sure we can do better than last season.” Spurs are 19.00 to go one better in Europe and win the Champions League outright, with Pochettino’s men priced at 9.00 to lift the FA Cup.
