“It’s not good to talk about the Asian Cup again,” Son Heung-min said through the British Evening Standard on the 13th (Korea Standard Time). It was a really hard result to accept, but that’s part of soccer. I’m really sad, but I’m playing soccer again to laugh like I did against Brighton and Hove Albion.”
The Evening Standard also emphasized, “Son Heung-min is healing the pain of being eliminated from the Asian Cup by playing for Tottenham.”
