Son Heung-min, Who Went Back to Tottenham

Son Heung-min expressed regret after the defeat against Jordan.

“Captain” Son Heung-min (Tottenham) returned to his team and apologized to fans once again.

Son Heung-min said on his personal Instagram account on the 8th, “As we played the Asian Cup tournament, which many people had been looking forward to, we were focusing on the game, so the thank-you greeting was too late.”

“I felt heavy and sad coming back to London after the game, but I arrived safely. As a captain, I wasn’t good enough, and I didn’t think I was able to lead the team well,” Son said. “I was so proud of being a Korean soccer player because you gave me so much love and support despite this situation. Thank you and I’m sorry.”

The Korean national soccer team, led by head coach Jurgen Klinsmann, was defeated by Jordan 0-2 in the semifinals of the tournament at Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium in Alayan, Qatar, on the 7th. He challenged to win the Asian Cup for the first time in 64 years, but he was frustrated after failing to resolve his frustrating performance. 스포츠토토
