Tottenham captain Son Heung-min talks about the club’s Premier League title charge
Tottenham and their electrifying start to the Premier League season has ignited dreams and conversations about the possibility of clinching the coveted title with Son Heung-min at the fore. With the team perched atop the league table, fans and pundits are beginning to ponder if this could be the year the Spurs end their half-century-long wait for a league title.
Unbeaten in the league so far, Tottenham have only drawn two of their 10 opening games. Ange Postecoglou has totally transformed the Lilywhites and the style of play is so much fun to watch.
However, Captain Son Heung-Min, in his post-match interview with Sky Sports (h/t BBC) after a hard-fought victory against Crystal Palace, offered a level-headed and pragmatic perspective on Tottenham’s title ambitions.
“Not at all [am I thinking about the title]. I’m experienced so I can’t just say we are going to win the league. You just want to stay on the ground and stay humble because it is early in the season. We just want to get three points in every game and then we will see what’s going to happen in the ned of the season. We work hard, let’s see what’s going to happen.”
His response surely speaks volumes about the mindset of a seasoned professional who has witnessed the ups and downs of football. He understands the long and arduous journey that a title race entails.
Son‘s experience in top-level football has taught him the importance of humility and the perils of overconfidence. He recognises that it’s early in the season and that the road to the title is a marathon, not a sprint. As he aptly put it, staying on the ground and humble is of utmost importance.
These words certainly underscore the maturity and wisdom that Son brings to the team as captain. In the high-stakes world of the Premier League, complacency can be a team’s undoing.
The Korean forward’s approach is a stark contrast to the exuberance that often accompanies a team’s early-season success. While fans and pundits may be quick to make bold predictions, Son reminds us of the importance of tempering expectations.
