Son hoping to be on ‘fire’ vs Liverpool

To get to the final, Spurs saw off Borussia Dortmund in the round of 16, Manchester City in the last eight and Ajax in the semi-final.

As for Jurgen Klopp’s men, they beat Bayern Munich in the last 16, FC Porto in the quarters and Barcelona in the last four.

Ahead of the final in Madrid, Heung-min Son has sent a message to Liverpool.

Son was in excellent form in both quarter-final legs, scoring three of Spurs’ four goals that they needed to beat Man City.

However, he was suspended for the first-leg vs Ajax and didn’t provide a goal or assist in the second-leg.

But Son is hoping to be back to his best and ‘in fire mode’ when facing Liverpool:

“I think everyone needs this time to rest.

“We’re trying to get as fit as possible, to make sure we give everything in this game.

“I am a really, really positive guy and it is one of the best feelings to be playing in the Champions League Final. So I just want to make sure that I am ready for every single ball and every single second.

“It is in three weeks, so everything is in our hands. I hope that I am in fire mode!” As quoted by the Evening Standard.
