Son attitude a problem

It will come as a surprise to Spurs fans and the Spurs squad that South Korean coach Uli Stielike is quoted by the Yonhap news agency as saying the attitude of Son Heung-min off the field must change.

Jan Vertonghem was only recently saying how everyone loved him and that off the field he had time for everyone, he was always happy, always smiling, simply great to have around the training ground.

Stielike is perhaps referring to the fact that Son and other players have shown disgust when being substituted for their country.

"As many people have already seen from the stands or on television, I think his behaviour away from the field can be problematic. Unless he gets his act together and changes his attitude, I will have to think about the rest of the team as the coach. All players have to be careful.

The reference to the stands and the TV audience suggests he is talking about at a game and off the field a reference to when not actually playing. Stielike is a strict disciplinarian and as such will believe that players have to set high standards of behaviour, they are after all representing their country and a role model for children.

Mauricio Pochettino has expressed himself very happy with Son and that it is an option that he plays as a lone striker. It's an example of how differently Pochettino sees his squad as to how fans see it. There is a very important game at the weekend, fortunately we are playing Tuesday so have plenty of rest time for the players to recuperate.

With that in mind it is likely that he will select a strong team tonight.
