Spurs ace thinking of how to reward Pochetino

Tottenham Hotspur ace, Heung-min Son is thinking of a gift to reward his manager Mauricio Pochettino after handing a chance to play in the Asian Games a tournament his side, South Korea won thereby exempting him from a 21 months military service.

Son captained the South Korea national football team to Gold in the tournament after beating Japan 2-1 in extra time. The win exempted Son and his teammates form the mandatory 21 months which should be completed before one attains the age of 28. While with his previous clubs Son was denied exemptions by Hamburg in 2010 and Bayer Leverkusen in 2014.

Son thanked Pochettino for handing him a chance to participate in the tournament, “My managers at Hamburg and Leverkusen didn’t let me go. So I’m really thankful to the gaffer. He took the risk. I made it, but without him and without his choice, I couldn’t have won gold. I’m thinking of a present for him!”

The 26-year-old is looking to repay Spurs with loyalty, “I’m looking forward to playing for Spurs. I felt sorry [to go]. It’s my team. I’ve played for three years with my heart and missed four weeks of this season.”
