Son Feels Responsible For Conte's Exit From Tottenham

Son Heung-Min

Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-Min expressed his regret over the exit of Antonio Conte, the club's former manager, and revealed that he feels responsible for the Italian's departure.

The South Korean forward, who was a joint-top scorer with 23 goals under Conte last season, has only scored six times in the current campaign.

Conte left the club after 2 years in charge, following an extraordinary press conference in which he criticised his players for being selfish, lacking team spirit, and unable to play under pressure. Tottenham's early exit from the domestic cups and the Champions League added to the pressure on the manager.

In a recent interview after South Korea's 2-1 friendly loss to Uruguay, Son stated, "As a player, I am really sorry. He's a world-class coach, and we had a great journey together. I should have played better. I feel responsible for his departure because I haven't helped the club all that much."

Despite Conte's departure, Son had only kind words for the former coach, describing him as "a great coach" and someone with "so much experience". Tottenham is currently fourth in the Premier League with 49 points from 28 games, and they will face Everton in their next game on Tuesday.
