Saha driven by heartache
Louis Saha has revealed how the pain of missing the 2008 Champions League final is driving him on towards next season's competition
Saha has admitted being ruled out of Manchester United's Moscow triumph through injury was the lowest point of his career, especially as he has had to wait another four years for a chance to rejoin the elite of Europe. The striker looked certain to do so when he joined a Tottenham side on transfer deadline day in January who were challenging for the Barclays Premier League title. Three months later, they are struggling to stay in the top four, and Saha is determined they do not screw up in their last three games of the season. "The low (in my career) is that night in the Champions League where I missed the final," Saha told Press Association Sport at a book signing for his self-penned autobiography, 'Thinking Inside the Box', at Canary Wharf Waterstones. "I'm a very ambitious person. I don't play to participate only. I want to win the biggest competitions if it's possible. So if I can participate and win it in, I'll try my best."
