Tottenham striker Heung-min Son has revealed he felt ‘sad’ as he watched the Amazon Prime documentary chronicling a troubled season for the club.
The exit of manager Mauricio Pochettino as the club’s manager and the appointment of Jose Mourinho as his replacement was the big story of the campaign. But that only told half the story, with Spurs’ top-four ambitions wrecked by injury problems and disappointment on and off the pitch.
In an exclusive interview, Son has told TEAMtalk he found it hard to look back over a campaign laced with disappointments.
Son’s bust-up with Spurs captain Hugo Lloris was one of the moments captured on film and the South Korean forward admitted the gaze of the camera was not helpful at times.
“It’s weird when you have an argument with a team-mate and then a few months later, it becomes part of a TV show,” Son told TEAMtalk.
“Everything about the Amazon film is strange. We knew the cameras were there, but then the documentary comes out and it feels strange to see it.
“When we started the documentary, we didn’t feel comfortable. There were cameras and microphones everywhere, literally everywhere, but now we can see the impact it has had all over the world.
“The documentary is helpful to build the club. Tottenham is getting much bigger than it was before and that is a good sign for this club.”
"Make the run for the team!”

Son speaks of Tottenham ‘sadness’
Son also admits the Spurs players took time to adapt to cameras following their every move.
He also concedes that watching the documentary back left him with a feeling of sadness.
“As a player it was a bit sad to watch because there was a lot unhappy things happening. You look at last season and something was happening in every episode of the Amazon film and it wasn’t good.
“Players got injured in every episode and it was great for people to watch, but not for us when we were in it. I think it was a good show to give people an idea of how we behind away from the camera, but the story did not end as we wanted last season.”
