Son Huen-Min: Mourinho is misunderstood

Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min has insisted that his manager Jose Mourinho has been misunderstood.

Son has been a key member for Mourinho since he took over the reins of the team from Mauricio Pochetinho and according to the South Korea captain, the Portuguese have amazed him since taking over the team.

"Some people misunderstand the manager. Maybe they have a different opinion compared to what he really is, but we see him every day and it is a great atmosphere at the training ground.

"We laugh and smile at training every day and you can see that in the Amazon video. He has a winning mentality and we all believe he can bring us success and take us to the next level.

"He has been amazing with us and I will always remember how I felt when he first came to the club and became my manager.  It was on an international break when we got the news that [Mauricio] Pochettino was leaving. I was really sad because everyone had a really good relationship with him.

"Then we have the arrival of a manager who is one of the most successful in football. It was just incredible. The first time I met him, I didn't believe it because I was watching him when I was a kid winning so many trophies. Now I'm working together with him.

"Now we are together for one year and it has been fantastic. Last season was difficult at times with all the injuries, but we have started this season so well and I just want to keep this feeling and achieve success with him,” Son told Goal at an Amazon Prime event to promote the All Or Nothing.

The documentary shows how Mourinho conducts himself with his players in training and even in match days.
