Heung-min Son: What Pochettino told me in Spurs showdown talks...

Tottenham attacker Heung-min Son is happy manager Mauricio Pochettino convinced him to stay.

The South Korean forward netted both goals in the 2-1 victory over Middlesbrough.

"It's difficult to say now if I thought I would come back after the Olympics. I don't know how to answer that, because I am staying here now and I am very happy.

“It is true I went to see the gaffer because I wanted to ask him to play more – I am a footballer and every player wants to play games. He was very honest with me, very truthful, and I am very grateful to him.

“This is very special, but the season has only just started and we have to keep this up as a team and I need to keep this form personally."
