Heung-min Son, the captain of Tottenham, said that his behavior after being replaced against Fulham was regrettable.
Son, a top player for Spurs, scored the game’s first goal with a beautiful curling effort from the edge of the box.
The midfielder then switched roles for James Maddison in the second half, providing him with a brilliantly timed pass that Maddison neatly completed past Leno.
The captain’s response, however, was not the best when Ange made the decision to substitute summer acquisition Alejo Veliz for Son in the 82nd minute.
The manager’s decision to remove him from the team clearly infuriated him, even if he later acknowledged that it was the wrong course of action.
After the game, Son spoke with Spurs Play via X and said:
“As a player, I want to be on the field at all times, therefore I believe this circumstance is a little bit frustrating.
“But I believe that when you see the player come on, it should be a genuinely joyful moment, as it is a young man who has been working extremely hard in training.
“They ought to participate. I believe that when I reflect now, I am slightly regretting it because I ought to have supported them more.
“However, I believe they did a fantastic job to get a clean sheet today as well, and I am very happy to see young lads coming on to play in this fantastic stadium,” the author said.
Son has been in excellent form so far this season, tallying 7 goals and 1 assist in just 9 games.
Given that Son had a scare with an injury during the international break, it is not surprising that Ange took him off.
He is one of his most crucial players, thus it is crucial to manage his fit
Jamie Carragher says he keeps hearing something about Tottenham fans that’s complete ‘nonsense’
According to Jamie Carragher, he frequently hears ‘crap’ about Tottenham Hotspur supporters.
Carragher discussed another victory for the Spurs while speaking on Monday Night Football.
Son Heung-Min and James Maddison’s goals gave Tottenham a 2-0 victory over Fulham Thursday night.
Against the Cottagers, Spurs weren’t at their best, and Ange Postecoglou even criticized his team after the game.
However, thanks to the victory, Tottenham reclaimed first place in the Premier League, and Jamie Carragher thinks their supporters should take advantage of the occasion.
Carragher on what he keeps hearing about Tottenham fans
Carragher argues that Tottenham supporters should be let to savor the moment and rejoice over their team’s early-season success on Sky Sports.
Yes, they are having fun, and the analyst didn’t necessarily believe that it was because Tottenham was leading the league. “I believe it’s just a vibe among the players; they are milking the boss, the football they are playing, and their own enjoyment.
“Well done to them. You will have the party police present tonight, so let them have fun and say whatever they want. They merit it.
Carragher makes a compelling case for why Tottenham supporters have every right to savor the moment and honor their team’s strong start to the year.
The practice of excessive victory celebration by fans is frequently criticized, and Spurs supporters have received similar criticism this year.
But why shouldn’t Spurs supporters celebrate their excellent season debut? Postecoglou has been a breath of fresh air for the North Londoners after some catastrophic performances in recent seasons.
After four years of more pragmatist managers, Tottenham fans are finally enjoying watching their team play football once more.
While Postecoglou’s employment is still in its infancy, Spurs fans have every right to enjoy the positive atmosphere at the club given that they now lead the league.
