Tottenham Hotspur conceded three goals in the last eight-plus minutes of the match on Sunday against West Ham, going from 3-0 up to a 3-3 final score. It was pretty awful and not much fun to watch.
Few however were probably as upset as Son Heung-Min, who scored the opening goal of the match less than a minute from the opening kick. After the final whistle, Sonny spoke to Sky Sports and talked about how conceding three points made him feel. Spoiler: he didn’t feel good.
“The lads are devastated for the result, of course. I think we deserved three points and we played really well until the last 10 minutes. It’s a big shock and the lads are devastated.
“That’s football. It should never happen, but this is football. I don’t want to feel this again, I think this is a good lesson for us. We dominated the game from the start and scored an early goal. We controlled the game, we had a couple of more chances to score, but when we score three goals at home, we can’t drop the points.
“The last goal, the strike was just unbelievable. Everyone is so sad to lose the two points. I would like to celebrate now and get three points, but it happens.”
When stuff like this happens, it makes Sonny sad. This is a problem, because Sonny should never feel sad ever. He’s too good and pure to be burdened with negative emotions like sadness, shock, and anger. There isn’t, of course, much he or we can do about it except go out and try and win at home to LASK this Thursday in the Europa League and then beat the snot out of Burnley at Turf Moor next Monday.
Spurs dropped two points and Sonny is sad. I know that feel, Sonny. I don’t want to feel this again either.
