Tottenham fans will love what Heung-min Son said about his future following Man City triumph

Tottenham see off Man City

The first Premier League gameweek of the 2021/22 season drew to a close a short time ago.

The final clash of the weekend would see Tottenham play host to current champions, Manchester City.

The Sky Blues headed into the tie as favourites, a tag which was doubled down on upon confirmation surfacing that Harry Kane was not in Spurs’ matchday squad.

And though Man City started the tie on the front foot, and probably should have scored in the opening 15 to 20 minutes, it was Spurs who ultimately broke the deadlock in north London.

Steven Bergwijn broke on the counter, before slipping in Heung-min Son, who went on to score the only goal of the day:

Son speaks on Tottenham future

After his match-winning display, Son was quizzed on his Tottenham future.

The South Korean signed for the Lilywhites in 2015, and recently penned fresh terms until 2025.

This means that, if he goes on to see out his current deal, the attacker will have been at Spurs for a decade.

And, when questioned on such a prospect post-match on Sunday, Son went on to suggest that this is precisely what he would like, confirming that he has no intention of moving on over the years ahead:

“Yes, if I can stay for another four years and football is never promised, so let’s see. That’s why I signed because I don’t want to move again somewhere else.

“I could be here for 10 years or more than 10 years, you never know what’s going to happen in the future, but I try to be focused every day, I try to improve every day and every single season. I think that the mindset is more important than the testimonial after 10 years.

“I didn’t expect to sort out the contract so early because I had a couple of years left. They showed how much they love me, I have already played six years here, but they give me so much and I wanted to give something back.

“I’m so grateful to be here, it’s an honour to play for this club. Another four years, I think we can achieve great things.”
