Son Heung-min admitted he was partly responsible for the early termination of Tottenham’s contract with coach Antonio Conte.
After Tottenham’s 3-3 draw against Southampton in the Premier League, coach Antonio Conte criticized Spurs’ players, saying they were selfish and did not want to play under pressure. The fact that the Italian teacher publicly blamed the players made the BLD and NHM of the London team unhappy.
Recently, Tottenham decided to terminate the contract ahead of time with Conte, they confirmed this decision received consent from both parties. Cristian Stellini will serve as caretaker manager until the end of the season.
This season, Son Heung-min is one of the worst players under Conte’s leadership. He has only scored six Premier League goals since last August, which is one of the reasons Spurs have continued to go through a titleless season.
Most recently, Son Heung-min admitted he was partly responsible for Tottenham sacking Conte, saying: “I am very sorry to Conte as a player. I should have shown my best qualities to help the team more, but I couldn’t.”
“For that, he had to shoulder the responsibility by leaving, and I think I also have a part of the responsibility that led to his dismissal. Now I want to send my best wishes to Conte, I will continue to follow and support him. For the few games left, I want to finish the season well with my teammates.”
