Heung-Min Son refuses to celebrate his own goal and publicly asked for an apology from Andre Gomes after the latter got injured recently.
Heung-Min Son once again showed modesty is not for everyone, as the South Korean International publicly asks for an apology from Andre Gomes after the former scores a goal against Crvena Zvezda.
In the last Premier League match, Gomes dislocated his ankle after Son made a challenge on him from behind, which led to an awkward fall of the Portuguese International.
Upon seeing Gomes state, Son was devastated and broke himself into tears and it surely signalled that he did not intend to hurt Gomes by any chance. Yet, he was shown a red card, which he did not object.
A few days later, Son appeared for Tottenham in the Champions League encounter, and scores two goals for his side to give a comfortable win by 4-0. But the highlight was as soon son scored his second goal, he came near to camera and folded his hands to ask for an apology.

This incident attracted several praises by fans online, who were touched by Son’s efforts to make up to his fault that led to a horrific accident and probably keeping Gomes out for the rest of the season.
Son didn’t even celebrate scoring a Champions League goal because he is more saint than human being and still feels bad about Gomes’ injury. I love him.

Meanwhile, earlier on Wednesday Gomes took to Twitter to thank fans for their support. Posting a video on social media the former Barcelona midfielder said, “Hi everyone, as you already know everything went well. ‘I’m already at home with my family and I would like to thank you all for the support, messages and positive energy. Thank you.”
On the other hand, with this win, the North London club has almost confirmed its qualification to the round of 16 with Bayern Munich already confirming its qualification into the next round.
