‘Good, not so good, stopped, injury, being in the army’ – Son on his rollercoaster season

Son Heung-min has admitted that he is happy to see the back of what has been a rollercoaster of a season in North London.

There was a lot of optimism surrounding Tottenham coming into the campaign as the club had invested considerably in the squad last summer.

Spurs were expected to push on after falling one step short of creating history in the Champions League final last season.

However, the team never got going in the 19/20 campaign, with Mauricio Pochettino eventually losing his job just a few months in.

Jose Mourinho has enjoyed a mixed record since arriving at the club but the team managed to string a decent run of results together towards the end of the season to sneak into sixth place.

Son admitted that the players are pleased to have qualified for the Europa League given the countless challenges they faced.

The South Korean also insisted that the experiences he went through this season will help make him a better player.

When asked to sum up the campaign, the 28-year-old told the club’s official website: “It was like a roller coaster… good, not so good, stopped, injury, being in the army, add everything together and it was a long season.

“The results… it was important to get into the Europa League, but it’s been a tough year.

“We have to be positive. It’s up to us. We will need the supporters’ help, but it’s up to us on the pitch, we’re playing football, not them. They will support us, and we have to give something back.

“I’m going to learn again from so many things from last season, and try to improve next season as well.”

Spurs Web Opinion

As demonstrated by Son’s impressive goals and assists numbers this season, I believe that the counter-attacking style we are currently adopting could bring the best out of the South Korean. If he has an injury-free season next year, I believe he could even hit the 20 goal mark.
