Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to react after boss Mauricio Pochettino reacted hilariously to a stat involving his star forward Son Heung-Min.
The former Southampton boss was told that his side have won all of the 13 games in which the South Korean forward has scored in, prompting this response from the Argentine manager: “Next time when Son scores I go to the dressing room and shower and wait for the game (to end).”
Son has now hit 16 goals across all competitions this season, with 11 of those coming in the last 16 games as he truly steps up in Harry Kane and Dele Alli’s absence through injury.
Following the 3-0 win over Borussia Dortmund, Spurs now have one foot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League after goals from Son, Jan Vertonghen and Fernando Llorente saw them dispatch of the Bundesliga giants with ease.
Fans of the north London-based side on Twitter, however, were obsessed with Pochettino’s humorous remark after the game…
