& # 39; It feels crazy & # 39 ;: Champions League final experience beyond the wildest dreams of Tottenham fan Harry Winks
- Harry Winks never dreamed of playing for Tottenham in a Champions League final
- The midfielder recovered from injury prior to the collision with Liverpool
- Winks, a lifelong Tottenham fan, is very happy with the club's transition
Harry Winks is about to experience something he didn't even dare dream of when he grew up as a Tottenham fan.
The midfielder has overcome a groin injury that needed surgery and has put him out of service since the beginning of April, and seems to be involved in the last meeting of Spurs & Champions League against Liverpool in Madrid.
Winks, whose family are lifelong Tottenham fans, played a minor role in a major European night for Spurs nine years ago, when he was a flag bearer prior to the 2010 Champions League quarter-final against Real Madrid.
Harry Winks has recovered from an injury and is probably involved in the Champions League final
The prospect of playing a much more important role in the Spanish capital is something that he still stands out.
& # 39; As a fan of Spurs this is 10 times more special for me & # 39 ;, Winks said.
& # 39; To be part of a team that has reached the Champions League final with Tottenham is something I honestly would never have dreamed of. To have the opportunity to say that.
& # 39; But to be part of the team and to have played as many matches as I did in the Champions League, to be part of this amazing side and this incredible era for Tottenham, to be honest, it's a true privilege.
& # 39; I feel humiliated to get the chance to do that and if we can go all the way we will make history and it will be fantastic.
& # 39; It is something that we think we can do. & # 39;
Lifelong Tottenham fan Winks never dreamed of being involved in a Champions League final
With Spurs in his blood and having joined them at just five years old, Winks has a fairly good understanding of what this opportunity means for the club.
He has been in the team for three consecutive Champions League campaigns, but it wasn't always as good as he was watching from the stands.
& # 39; It's my club. I've known the club since I was five years old, it's the only club I've ever played for, & he added.
& # 39; To be part of a Champions League final with Tottenham, it feels crazy to say so. It has not really been sunk.
& # 39; The only thing you can say about Spurs is that we have been a bit mixed over the years.
Winks reflected in the transition Tottenham has undergone since he started looking at them
& # 39; We have had seasons in which we have been excellent and others where we have done poorly. Since the gaffer arrived, he has made us a solid top-four side and one that must be taken very, very seriously in Europe.
& # 39; As a fan of Spurs, growing up from a little boy, I have seen that transition. What the manager did to the club and how far he took everyone, not just as players but as people, to be honest, it's incredible to have seen.
& # 39; I have been there, I watched them from the stands in White Hart Lane and went to the games as a child, so I know exactly how the Spurs transition went and how the club grew.
& # 39; And I think it's only going one way, and that's even higher and better. & # 39;
