Son Heung-Min Respond to Furious Ange Postecoglou Rant

Tottenham forward Son Heung-min has expressed his full faith in manager Ange Postecoglou, despite the club’s failure to secure a top-four finish in the Premier League.

Speaking to the Evening Standard, Son said, “We should understand it’s the gaffer’s first year and he brought so much positivity and different football.”

Postecoglou’s first season at Tottenham has been a mixed bag. The club started the season brightly but fell short in the final stretch, with a loss to Manchester City officially ending their Champions League qualification hopes. The defeat also sparked criticism surrounding the team’s tactics and a perceived lack of fight.

Postecoglou himself was critical of the team’s “fragile” mentality and defended his decision not to play for a result against City, which would have benefited Arsenal in the title race.

Son, however, remains a believer in the manager’s methods. “I’m all in,” he declared. “I’m loving the way he wants to play. It’s the first time I’ve experienced it.”

The forward also called for unity amongst all parties at the club. “Everybody — the club, the players, also the fans — everybody has to step up, because we have to be all together in this. He’s definitely shown he can bring success to the club,” he emphasized.

Son has shouldered a significant attacking burden this season following Harry Kane’s departure to Bayern Munich. While he has been a bright spot for Tottenham, he also missed a crucial chance late in the City loss.

The South Korean captain defended the team’s performance, stating, “As players, we all wanted to do our best for the club and for us [against City]. We really didn’t care about anything else. We only concentrated on what’s best for us, for the team.”

With the season drawing to a close, Son’s comments suggest a strong belief in Postecoglou’s long-term vision for Tottenham. However, the club will need to find a way to address their shortcomings and translate early-season promise into tangible success.
