Tottenham news: Antonio Conte completely satisfied Son is ‘a bit offended’ despite Spurs’ strong start | Football | Sport


Tottenham boss Antonio Conte has revealed Son Heung-min feels “a bit offended” at how he has began the season – having didn’t rating in eight matches in all competitions. It has been a productive begin to the Premier League season for Spurs, who’re locked on points in second with Manchester City after 4 wins and two draws from their opening six matches.

Yet on a private level, Son has failed to indicate the identical form that saw him win last season’s Premier League Golden Boot.

Tottenham supporters on social media have been making calls for Conte to drop Son now that Spurs have 4 viable options in attack following the signings of Dejan Kuluveski and Richarlison.

But Conte has thus far, shown faith within the South Korean international, who he hopes will play his way into form.

The Italian has conceded that his ruthless attacker isn’t completely satisfied by his own standards – although he doesn’t feel any reason to be alarmed.

“It could possibly occur, especially while you play massive games, you’ll be able to be a bit drained. Mentally, also,” he added.

“Of course it may occur that in some games he can’t play from the beginning, like Harry also.

“But only to guard him, to present the chance to rest, to handle his energy and to bring us to win.

“On Saturday we want energy. We finished the sport against Sporting with not a variety of energy and for that reason I’m a bit upset.

“We lost a variety of energy after which we lost (the sport, conceding twice in stoppage time).

“Now I even have one other day to make the most effective decision. Of course I’ll make rotation on Saturday.”

Tottenham host Leicester in Premier League on Saturday evening (5:30pm) and Spurs could head into Sunday top of the table in the event that they pick up three points and Manchester City fail to win at Wolves.

Conte’s side will probably be trying to bounce back in style after the midweek 2-0 Champions League defeat to Sporting in Portugal.
