'I really want to finish well this season' - Sonny speaks from the heart

Heung-Min Son says the players have to take ‘big, big responsibility’ for the rest of the season.
The South Korea star was crestfallen after Sunday’s 3-1 loss against Manchester United in the Premier League.
That result left us six points behind the top four with seven league matches to go, plus the Carabao Cup Final against Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday 25 April.
“I know it's always easy to say, 'let's be positive' or 'we'll do our best' but I really want to finish well this season,” said Sonny, who fired us in front in the first half against a United side who then responded with three goals in the second half.
“We’re six points behind the top four, so we have to get results and wait for the other teams to drop points, but we have to do our best and take big, big responsibility for the rest of the season.”
Always such an effervescent character, Sonny couldn’t hide his disappointment. “I really don't know what to say, I'm really sorry about it and feel bad,” he told us. “There has always been passion from outside this stadium, and those who support us I know are really, really disappointed. I think they're even more disappointed than us, so I feel really bad and sorry about it.
“It's about the results. If we win, I'm really happy and if we lose, I'm really down for two or three days. So, what can I say? We have to bounce back strong next Friday.”
We travel to Goodison Park to take on Everton in the Premier League on Friday evening (8pm).
