EPL: Why I didn’t celebrate hat-trick against Leicester City – Heung-Min Son

Tottenham Hotspur forward, Heung-Min Son, has given reasons why he did not celebrate his hat-trick against Leicester City on Saturday.

Son started the Premier League fixture on the bench, but came off the bench with the score at 3-2.

The South Korea star went on to score his first goals of the new campaign ending an eight-game barren run.

While explaining why there was no elaborate show of emotion after silencing any doubters against the Foxes, Son said: “I just wasn’t happy with my chances and performance-wise I was not happy and I was disappointed with myself. Look, I’m born loving football and I am still in love with football. I think about football. I’m an attacking player and when I’m not scoring I’m not happy. How can I be happy if I have an unbelievable opportunity to score or make the chances?

“If I’m happy and I’m not scoring, I probably wouldn’t be here. Sometimes when I go home, even if we’ve won the game. I’m still sad because my performance wasn’t good, there are things I can do better and the mistakes I made because I missed the chances. I’m always thinking about football because I made it here and this is the way I am here. I still love football even in the tough moments and this is why I am here.”
