Son says Tottenham can't blame disappointing form on 'strange' season

Son Heung-min says Tottenham can’t blame poor form on ‘strange’ pandemic-affected season as he reveals players have held team meetings to ensure they improve

  • Son Heung-min says Spurs can’t blame collapse on it being a ‘strange’ season 
  • Tottenham have fell down the table after suffering four defeats in five matches 
  • Son says that Tottenham have held team meetings in a bid to help them improve 

Son Heung-min says that Spurs can’t blame their collapse in form on the peculiarities of this unique pandemic-affected season and says that team meetings between the players have taken place to ensure that there is an improvement at West Ham on Sunday.

The Tottenham striker has 18 goals for Spurs this season and his partnership with Harry Kane has been responsible for 72 per cent of the club’s Premier League goals.

But Son, who scored against Wolfsburger on Thursday night in the Europa League, only has one Premier League goal in the last seven games, as Spurs have plummeted down the table with four defeats in the last five games.

Son Heung-min says Tottenham can’t blame their form on the peculiarities of a strange season

And Son said: ‘I know it has been a strange season but I know we have to do better and we know we can do better.

‘It has been one year already like this [with Covid] and I just don’t know how the time flies. But it can’t be an excuse.

‘Players have conversations, we have meetings as players, we speak as players one by one. We have a really good group of players having these chats, it’s no problem.

‘We have had a couple of bad results but we just need to focus on the coming games. It’s always tough, but we’re looking forward to having positive games.’

Tottenham have suffered some disappointing results and are now determined to respond

Son says the whole team needs to step up so Tottenham aren’t overly-reliant on Harry Kane

He also insisted that the whole team needs to step up so that they cease to be known as the Harry Kane team, with the responsibility currently loaded on the England centre forward to perform, along with Son.

‘Everyone has to take their responsibility for this kind of things,’ he said. ‘We’re not expecting Harry to score the goals all the time, because Harry’s working also for the team and we’re going to work also for the team. Without the team, Harry’s not going to score. Without the team, I’m not going to score. It’s all about the team connection.’

Son says criticism of Jose Mourinho will cease as soon as Tottenham’s results start to improve

And he maintained that criticism of manager Jose Mourinho and his tactics, which see Tottenham concede possession, will cease as soon as results pick up. ‘When we win the games there was not any criticism. When we have a couple of bad results, obviously the conversation came out, the main issue came out, about our way of playing. 

‘The players are really hungry with every single game and training sessions, you can see they want to do more, they want to take responsibility for their games and our games.’
