Son Heung-min hold himself responsible for the exit of Antonio Conte at Tottenham.

Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min said he feels responsible for the Conte’s exit after failing to replicate his excellent form from the previous campaign.

The 30 year-old finished as the joint-top scorer in the Premier League with 23 goals to help Spurs finish fourth under Conte last season, but the South Korean has scored only six times in the league so far.

Tottenham parted ways with Conte on Sunday, eight days after he slammed his players as selfish, lacking team spirit and unable to play under pressure in an extraordinary media conference following a 3-3 draw at Southampton.

“As a player, I am really sorry. He’s a world-class coach, and we had a great journey together,” Son stated this after South Korea’s 2-1 friendly loss to Uruguay in Seoul on Tuesday.

“I should have played better. I feel responsible for his departure, because I haven’t helped the club all that much.

“I am grateful for what he’s done … He’s such a great coach and has so much experience. I will be rooting for him.”

Tottenham are fourth in the Premier League with 49 points from 28 games and return to action at Everton on Tuesday.
