Some Spurs fans on social media reacted emotionally to seeing Son Heung-min embracing Dele Alli after the midfielder’s brilliant display in Tottenham’s 4-0 win over Wolfsberger on Wednesday night.
Dele has got a decent amount of minutes under his belt since returning from injury earlier this month with Jose Mourinho deciding to hand the midfielder a start against the Austrian outfit.
The 24-year-old delivered his best performance of the season so far and he was instrumental in almost every decent attack that Spurs put together.
He opened the scoring for the home side with a brilliantly improvised overhead kick before showing his class again in the second half with two fantastic assists for Carlos Vinicius and Gareth Bale.
The England international was withdrawn with little less than ten minutes of normal time left as Mourinho threw on academy starlet Dane Scarlett.
When Alli came off, Son gave the midfielder a big hug to congratulate him on his display.
Here’s how some Spurs fans on social media reacted to the incident:
The love is real

I’m crying. Sonny’s probably the one who supported Dele the most. Sonny said, Dele is my best friend.
