Son: ‘Do you think they played better than us?’

Tottenham goalscorer Son Heung-Min reacted indignantly to suggestions from Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini that they lost their Champions League clash because of a lack of experience.

Spurs fell just short in their biggest audition yet as two goals in three minutes from Juve turned the game on its head at Wembley.

Chiellini told ITV Sport that Spurs were ‘weak’ and ‘mentally fragile’ and said their ‘history’ told the Italian team that the London side would fail.

Asked about a lack of experience by the Evening Standard, Son said: “No, I don’t think so. Do you think they played better than us?

“We deserved more. We dominated. They just scored two goals and everyone’s thinking, ‘Yeah, they went through normally’. I don’t feel like that.

“I’m very proud of our performance. We should have scored a lot of goals in the first half. The second half takes experience of course, you could say that.

“But I think our players are experienced enough. Sometimes if you don’t score, you lose. That’s the main thing.”

Certainly, Spurs striker Harry Kane was at least partly culpable for the exit, and he made it into our losers list.
