Heung-min Son has opened up on his experience of having to deal with Amazon’s cameras having followed Tottenham Hotspur around last season.

Spurs granted behind the scenes access for the All or Nothing cameras to gain access to the daily ongoings at the club’s Hotspur Way training facility, inside the dressing room and also away from the pitch as part of the docuseries (Daily Mail).

Son has admitted that he felt slightly sad watching back the footage which included him being involved in a heated bust-up with captain Hugo Lloris during the half time break against Everton.

The South Korean highlighted the fact that it felt as if a player became injured in every episode of the docuseries which saw the likes of Son, Harry Kane, Moussa Sissoko and Ben Davies all have to deal with long-term injury issues.

However, Son does feel that the coverage has helped the club to increase awareness and is now bigger than it has ever been.

He told TEAMtalk: “It’s weird when you have an argument with a team-mate and then a few months later, it becomes part of a TV show,” 

“Everything about the Amazon film is strange. We knew the cameras were there, but then the documentary comes out and it feels strange to see it.

“When we started the documentary, we didn’t feel comfortable. There were cameras and microphones everywhere, literally everywhere, but now we can see the impact it has had all over the world.

“The documentary is helpful to build the club. Tottenham is getting much bigger than it was before and that is a good sign for this club.”

He added: “As a player it was a bit sad to watch because there was a lot unhappy things happening. You look at last season and something was happening in every episode of the Amazon film and it wasn’t good.

“Players got injured in every episode and it was great for people to watch, but not for us when we were in it. I think it was a good show to give people an idea of how we behind away from the camera, but the story did not end as we wanted last season.”
