Heung-Min Son Sprints Back To Make 92nd Minute Goal-Line Clearance In Pre-Season Friendly

Heung-Min Son Sprints Back To Make 92nd Minute Goal-Line Clearance In Pre-Season Friendly

Heung-Min Son demonstrated incredible work-rate and sprint speed to make a goal-line clearance in the 92nd minute of a pre-season game against Watford.

Spurs lost 2-1 to the Hornets but it would have been 3-1 in the friendly fixture had Son not darted back from the halfway line in what was virtually the last kick of the game.

With goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga joining the attack for a corner kick, Watford broke quick and soon the ball was with Marc Navarro on the left.

The defender's effort was about to roll the ball into an empty net but Son, having ran all the way back from the opposite half, manage to nip in and stop the goal.

Considering it was a meaningless pre-season friendly, it was some serious commitment displayed by Son, who was wearing the captain's armband for the first time due to several players being away on international duty.

Son scored Spurs' only goal in the game from the spot and Jose Mourinho absolutely loved his the work ethic late on.

"I really liked the fact that in the last minute, we are fighting to try to score, and then Sonny makes a 100-metre sprint to stop the 3-1 on the counter-attack."

Son really is a manager's dream and recently it's emerged that Mourinho is learning the Korean language to strengthen his communication skills with the former Hamburg and Bayer Leverkusen forward.

"Communication is very important when I am with the group," he said at the club's Amazon Prime documentary launch.

"I have to go to the native language, which everybody understands.

"It's respectful to the culture of the club to speak the language of the individuals in it. In the series it was a Portuguese group of coaching staff, although we now also have an English coach in Ledley King.

"And with the players, I jump into their language - that is why I am learning Korean."
