Tottenham must use their disappointment of losing the Champions League final to Liverpool as a spur to push them on for the future, according to Dele Alli. Spurs reached their first ever Champions League final last season but in a poor match lost out to their Premier League rivals by two goals to nil.
On the eve of a new campaign with clubs putting the final touches to their preparations, the England midfielder says they should use the heartache of that defeat to spur them on this time around. “It was obviously a great campaign but reaching the Champions League final and losing it is heartbreaking,” Alli said.
“But we’ve got to try to use it as an advantage – taking the positives from it and driving us on this season. “We’ve got a young squad, who’ve been together a little while with the manager and we’re showing we’re heading in the right direction.”
