SNAPPED: Spurs hero Heung-min Son stunned to learn of Ajax ban

Tottenham's two goal hero Heung-min Son was floored to learn he was suspended for the first-leg of the Champions League semifinal against Ajax.

Son was a key figure in the astonishing Spurs success, as he followed up his first leg goal with a brace inside 10 minutes at Manchester City.

But now Son won't play in the first leg against Dutch giants Ajax after he picked up a suspension, a matter which has been a source of debate for Spurs fans.

Having been booked twice in this season's competition previously, the 48th minute yellow card received by the South Korean took his tally to three for the tournament, triggering a one-game ban.

Son was informed of his ban by Sky Sport Deutchland after the game and could only respond with a heartbreaking "I didn't know!"
