Heung-Min Son cannot wait for the day our fans are back out in force at Tottenham Stadium.
We’ve been without supporters since the country went into lockdown to combat the COVID-19 in March. Football returned three months later in June, matches had to be played behind closed doors with all appropriate safety measures in place.
Our South Korean star scored his equalizer in the north London derby against Arsenal. Son finished superbly and turned away to celebrate – but no-one was there in the stands when the noise would have been breath-taking.

He finished the campaign with 11 goals and 10 assists in the Premier League – only the fourth Spur to do so – and his wonder goal against Burnley won Goal of the Season.
“It’s so sad not to be able to see the fans in our beautiful stadium,” said Sonny. “The players all miss these guys and hopefully we’ll see them as soon as possible. We miss them so much.
“We need the supporters’ help, but it’s up to us on the pitch as well, we’re playing football, not them. They have supported us amazingly, watching on TV or on a laptop, so we have to give them something back.
“We will try to be positive and hopefully we’ll give them something back next season. I can’t wait to get the ball rolling again, can’t wait to see them at the stadium. This is most important for me. Without the fans at the stadium, it feels like I’m playing alone! I hope I can see the fans as soon as possible.”
