Former Tottenham Hotspur winger, Andros Townsend has claimed that any player beyond Son Heung-min would have attacked the camera crew if they had been filmed after being sent off.
The first three episodes of Amazon Prime’s ‘All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur’ dropped earlier this week and the series gave fans some fascinating insights into what went on behind the scenes at the club last season.
Tottenham’s 2-0 loss to Chelsea at home back in December is covered in the third episode as the cameras follow Son Heung-min into the dressing room after the South Korean was given his marching orders for kicking out at Antonio Rudiger.
Son appears angry and distraught as he walks into the dressing room and is seen complaining that the decision to award a red card was harsh.
The camera then stays focused on the Spurs forward as he sits alone inside the changing room, looking like he is on the verge of breaking into tears.
Townsend insisted that the Amazon team were lucky that the 28-year-old was a nice guy as most other players would not have taken kindly to being filmed.
The Crystal Palace winger told talkSPORT (02/09/20 at 8:25 am): “It’s very lucky that Son is probably the nicest man in football. Probably anyone else would have attacked the camera, for sure. 100%.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Son was one of several Tottenham players who came across very well in the series. The South Korean seems to be every bit as nice and genuine as his reputation suggests and one could tell that he is very popular in the changing room. I am looking forward to seeing if the argument between Lloris and Son will be covered in any detail in the documentary. If so, I am fascinated to see how the forward reacted to that incident.
