Tottenham star Son left emotional after Man Utd defeat - 'I'm really sorry'

Tottenham star Heung-Min Son could not hide his disappointment as his side threw away another lead against Manchester United in the Premier League.

The home side started the game brightly, and took the lead through Son in the 40th minute.

However, Tottenham could not maintain control over the game, and surrendered possession and initiative to United in the second period.

The Red Devils went on to win 3-1 thanks to goals from Fred, Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood.

Son told the club's official website: "It's a really sad afternoon. I'm really not bothered about the goal.

"I really wanted to win, especially after the last game [at Newcastle] when I came on, back from injury, we were leading and drew.

"I don't know what to say – I'm really sorry about it and feel bad. I know those supporting us are really disappointed – I think they are more disappointed than us so I feel really bad and really sorry about it. I really, really wanted to win – I really do."
