Son Heung-min explains his celebration after scoring against Leicester City

Son Heung-min, won the golden boot in the Premier League last season. His 22 goals put him on top of the goal-scorers list alongside Liverpool star Salah.

However, this time around the South Korean went through a bit of a goal drought. As he failed to score in his first six Premier League fixtures.

With that being said, Son Heung-min came off the bench against Leicester to bag himself a hat trick. Interestingly, however, the forward chose a rather intriguing celebration following his first goal.

Speaking about this celebration, Spurs’ number 7 said: “I couldn’t move. I was so emotional with myself. I didn’t know what to do. Just stand still, look at the sky, look at the crowd. In my head, all my family came into my mind. All the staff, all my team-mates, all the supporters.

“That’s why I stood there and then just had a moment to think.

“I was born loving football and I’m still loving football but when you go home you take with you many things.

“I’m an attacking player, so if I don’t score how can I be happy? I can’t be happy if I have unbelievable opportunities to score goals or make chances. If I don’t score and I’m happy, probably I wouldn’t be here.

“Sometimes even if we win, I’m still sad because of my performance, or where I can do better, how I can do better, the mistakes I make or the chances I miss. I’m always thinking about football because this is how I made it here.”
