'Mourinho is misunderstood' - Son says Tottenham manager's 'winning mentality' can bring success


The Portuguese is approaching a year in charge of Spurs and the South Korea international has been impressed by the impact he has made

Son Heung-min believes Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has been misunderstood over the course of his career, and admitted he was 'amazed' when he got the chance to work with one of the game's ultimate winners for the first time last year.

Speaking to Goal at an Amazon Prime event to promote the All Or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur documentary, South Korea international Son insisted Mourinho's reputation for falling out with players has not been in evidence in his first year as Spurs boss.

The documentary showed the former Porto, Chelsea, Inter, Real Madrid and Manchester United manager being brutally honest with his players at times, yet Son suggests that approach is welcome for a team and a club trying to win their first major trophy since 2008.
