Postecoglou says Heung-min Son doesn’t need an armband to show his love for Tottenham
Speaking to the press as quoted by Football. London, Tottenham Hotspur manager Ange Postecoglou has claimed that Son Heung-min doesn’t need the armband to show his love for the club.
The departure of Harry Kane, the talismanic figure who once bore the captain’s armband alongside Hugo Lloris, left a void that needed filling. At that moment, there was no better choice than Heung-min Son.
The South Korean sensation has been a steadfast presence at Tottenham since his arrival in 2015. Over the years, he’s not only become a fan favourite but has also demonstrated his commitment to the club on numerous occasions.

While Son’s tenure as captain has been relatively short, it has been nothing short of magnificent. Tottenham’s Premier League campaign has commenced with a flourish, remaining unbeaten in their first six games.
However, it’s not just Son’s goal-scoring prowess that has made him stand out. His leadership qualities have shone through, casting a radiant light on the path of the Lilywhites. This was most evident in the recent North London derby, where Son’s influence was pivotal.
In a recent press interaction, Ange Postecoglou couldn’t help but shower praise on his skipper and the remarkable manner in which Son embodies Tottenham Hotspur.
“To be fair to Sonny, he always has been. He hasn’t needed the armband to show his love for the football club.”
Indeed, Son’s love affair with Tottenham has been evident for years. It’s a bond that transcends the formality of a captain’s armband. He exudes the passion and dedication that every Spurs supporter holds dear
What makes Son’s captaincy all the more remarkable is his infectious positivity. He wears the armband with a beaming smile, a symbol of the joy he finds in leading this team. His positive attitude has a ripple effect throughout the squad.
