“I’m only human,” Son admitted to the Evening Standard regarding the missed opportunity. “The goalkeeper made an excellent decision and presented himself as a formidable obstacle. Nonetheless, I bear the responsibility for not converting that significant chance for the team, given their hard work and determination to secure a positive result.”

Amidst the aftermath, Spurs manager Ange Postecoglou garnered attention for his critique of the club’s ethos following a period where fans advocated for deliberate defeat to thwart Arsenal’s title aspirations.

“We need to comprehend that it’s the gaffer’s inaugural year, and he’s infused a lot of positivity and a distinct style of play,” Son elaborated. “While it’s premature to assess, we must elevate our performance for the upcoming season because I firmly believe he can lead the club to success.”

Expressing full support for Postecoglou’s vision, Son emphasized the need for collective effort from all stakeholders – players, staff, and fans alike – to achieve success.

“As players, our focus was solely on the team’s welfare during the match against City,” Son emphasized. “We disregarded external factors and concentrated solely on our collective objectives, aiming to deliver our best performance. We were determined to give our all for the club and our colleagues.”
