Sonny: ‘We want more next season’

Heung-Min Son has no doubts – we’ll come back stronger for 2019/20.
‘Sonny’ spoke to us exclusively from Seoul after captaining South Korea in friendly internationals against Australia and Iran last week.
That brought to an end a testing – and rewarding – season for the forward.
The 26-year-old bagged 20 goals again in all competitions including three of the four goals as we beat Manchester City in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
His performances saw him clean up in our One Hotspur Members/Supporters Clubs’ awards and away from Spurs, he led his country to gold in the Asian Games.
“It was a crazy season, some incredible moments, of course some disappointments as well,” reflected Sonny after his fourth campaign for the Club, following which he’s now up to 67 goals in 188 appearances for us.
“It was a tough schedule and we had some great results. We finished top four again and reached the Champions League Final. Obviously, we were disappointed to lose the final, but we can be very proud.
“The players learned so much from last season and we will want more next season – and I believe we have a good chance to do something. I’m looking forward to coming back stronger.”
Sonny will unfortunately be suspended for our first two Premier League fixtures of 2019/20 – the fixtures announced last Thursday. He will miss Villa at home (10 August) and the big trip to City the following weekend (17 August, date subject to change). He will be available for Newcastle at home (24 August, date subject to change).
Nevertheless, he added: “It will be a very exciting game for us and Villa as well. We’ll look forward to playing our first game of the new season at our new stadium. That will be a special day.
“Obviously I’m suspended. That’s tough for me because I want to play every game and I’m sorry for the team because I’ll miss two games.”
