Tottenham Star Son Apologizes to Antonio Conte After His Departure
Heung-min Son, Tottenham’s star player, has expressed regret to former manager Antonio Conte. The Italian abruptly quit the club amid controversy after their 3-3 draw against Southampton. Despite the squad’s silence, Son has broken that silence in a heartfelt statement about his ex-boss during his international duty.
Son scored 20 goals in all competitions under Conte last season, and was a key performer for Tottenham. However, following a decline in his performance this season, Spurs are now on the hunt for a new head coach, with Cristian Stellini serving as interim coach. There are rumours that former Bayern Munich manager, Julian Nagelsmann, is being contacted by the club’s chairman, Daniel Levy, about the vacant position.
Meanwhile, Son has come forward with an emotional apology to his former manager. He expressed his remorse while on international duty with South Korea. “I’m very sorry to him,” Son said. “He is a world-class manager, and we had a great journey together. I thank him a lot. I do not know how other players are thinking about him, but I’m sorry to him.”
Son’s statement carries a significant weight as he is the first Tottenham player to speak out about Conte since his departure.
Spurs failed to bag any silverware under the ex-Chelsea and Inter Milan boss. While a few players under his helm thrived, fans disapproved of his playing style. With the search for a new coach ongoing, fans’ hopes are high to find the right fit for the London club.
