– Heung Min-Son scored twice to guide Spurs to a 4-0 win over Red Star in Champions League
– The Tottenham talisman however opted against celebrating one of the goals as he paid tribute to André Gomes
– Son unintentionally injured the Everton star during a Premier League clash at Goodinson Park
Heung Min-Son, Tottenham star, may still be overtly devastated by guilt but by virtual of his highly remorseful gesture during Spurs’ victory over Red Stars, the South Korean star has accrued more love to his side.
Son put behind perhaps the most spine-chilling moment of his career that saw him accidentally dislocate André Gomes’s leg in a Premier League tie against Everton as he scored a brace in Spurs’ Champions League win over Serbian side.
But the top highlight of the encounter was when the 27-year-old refused to celebrate his second goal and opted to use the moment to apologise to the Everton star in a touching moment caught on camera.
Son would later disclose that he staged the on-pitch gesture out of respect for Gomez because he understood “his situation.”
“I didn’t want to celebrate because I wanted to respect his situation. Of course, I still feel really, really sorry about the situation,” the 27-year-old said
“Of course, I still wish Andre Gomes gets well soon and best wishes,” Son submitted according to Balls report.
The emotional action has set social media agog with football fans across the world praising the South Korean star for his humility and his enviable sense of remorse.
“Son didn’t even celebrate scoring a Champions League goal because he is more saint than human being and still feels bad about Gomes’ injury. I love him,” one posted.
