Sonny opens up and reveals why he saw red against Bournemouth last season

Tottenham Hotspur have had no problem scoring this season so far when you look at the matches on paper, having bagged three against Aston Villa and two against the champions, Man City.

However, Spurs have certainly been lacking a little cutting edge in their attacks, something that Heung Min Son brought in abundance last season.

The South Korean winger has reached that level now that he can win a game single-handedly and consistently, becoming one of Spurs’s most important players.

However, Son has not yet been seen this season, despite being fit and ready to play, and it’s all thanks to a moment of madness against Bournemouth.

At the end of the last campaign, Son saw red uncharacteristically after he was fouled by a Cherries player, causing the Spurs man to push him to the ground.

Son therefore had to serve a suspension that carried across to the first two matches of this season and he now admits that the Bournemouth man was in his head, but it won’t happen again.

He said (Daily Star): “We were losing and the guy was in my head a little bit. There was a foul. Everything comes together and I lost my head. But I will learn from these situations. It will never happen again.

“It’s been almost three weeks now I couldn’t play and it was really painful watching my team-mates. I am sorry for what happened. But I’m ready to go now and I can’t wait.

“I can’t promise I’ll do better than last season but this is my goal. I’m improving still, I’m hungry.

“This team deserves to win something. We are missing the last step many, many times. But we are ready to win something.”
