Spurs fans praise Son after winger’s Wembley apology

Heung-min Son will be feeling the love from Spurs fans this morning after the South Korean apologised to fans for getting knocked out of the Champions League.

Spurs were stunned at Wembley on Wednesday by a second half flurry from Italian champions Juventus.

The home side held the advantage from the first leg, the 2-2 draw in Turin giving Spurs the upper hand on away goals. Son looked to have wrapped things up in the first half, his scuffed finish giving the hosts a deserved lead on the night.

But the Old Lady showed their experience in the second half, as quick-fire goals from Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala left Spurs on the ropes. The home side pushed for an equaliser, but Harry Kane’s late header could only find the post.

Son apologised to fans after the match, saying he was proud of the team and the fans…

The 25 year-old has been in fine form for Spurs this season, and has been especially potent at home – he has five goals and an assist in his last three appearances in all competitions.

Needless to say, the flying winger has endeared himself to the Wembley crowd this season and has received nothing but praise after his post match comments.
