Sonny vying for victory against La Viola
25 February 2016|Tottenham Hotspur
Heung-Min Son has called for concentration from the players in tonight’s (Thursday, February 25) match against Fiorentina.
We take on the Italian side at White Hart Lane in the second leg of our Europa League round of 32 tie, following last week’s 1-1 draw in Florence.
A starter against La Viola in that initial game, Sonny is eager to help us get the job done on the continental stage tonight.
But he’s warned that full focus will be required if we’re to avoid a repeat of Sunday’s FA Cup defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace.
“It’s a very important game tonight and we are making sure we prepare for the Europa League well,” said the South Korean international.
“The away match against Fiorentina was a difficult game but we managed to get the draw and an away goal which will hopefully work in our favour for the second match at home.
“We were disappointed to lose against Crystal Palace in the FA Cup but we need to focus on the next games now and we’ll keep working hard to win against Fiorentina and get into the next round of the Europa League.
“It’s good to have a quick turnaround after Sunday’s game but we’re already used to having games every three or four days so it is not unusual. It would have been great to get through on Sunday but that has passed and we now need to make sure our full concentration is on the upcoming game.”
