Tottenham’s Son Heung-min Will Refuse to Celebrate If He Scores Tonight

Tottenham’s Son Heung-min Will Refuse to Celebrate If He Scores Tonight

Tottenham attacker Son Heung-min has insisted that he won’t celebrate scoring against Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League tonight, in a match which could help decide the London’s club’s European fate this season.

Son is one of the Premier League’s in-form players this season, having scored five goals in seven appearances in all competitions this season, including the winner in Spurs’ last Champions League game at CSKA Moscow.

His excellent performances saw the South Korean international awarded the English top-flight’s Player of the Month Award for September, and he’ll be an important player for Mauricio Pochettino’s side should they hope to pick anything up in Germany.

But if Son does find the net, his reaction will be muted, as a mark of respect for the two years he spent at Leverkusen earlier in his career.

Speaking via the Evening Standard, Son said: “Nacer Chadli didn’t celebrate when he scored against us for West Brom on Saturday and if I score against them, I will not celebrate.

“I respect them too much.”

What do you make of Son’s decision? Is he right to show his former employers respect? Or is he being disrespectful to the Spurs fans who now help pay his wages?
