Jan Vertonghen has urged Tottenham to ‘cherish the moment’ when they face Liverpool in the Champions League final on June 1.
Spurs face Premier League rivals Liverpool in an all-English affair for Europe’s biggest prize, looking to be crowned champions of Europe for the first time in the club’s history.
Belgian international Vertonghen has hailed the strong bond between Mauricio Pochettino’s side, and has called on the Spurs squad to ‘do everything’ they can to lift the trophy in Madrid this weekend.
“I can’t wait. I’ve reached a certain stage of my career and to be here with this group of friends – that’s what we are – is special and we have to cherish the moment and do everything we can to go home with that famous trophy,” Vertonghen told tottenhamhotspur.com.
“We’re an unbelievable group, very close. We see each other on and off the pitch. It’s a group of friends and that shows in the games. We could talk about every single Champions League game this season. We’re close and I’m happy that it shows on the pitch.
“It has to be one of the best years of my career. To achieve this with this group of guys is great. It’s a talented group and they deserve it.”
