Captain Son Heung-min knows Tottenham’s ‘family’ will continue to stand behind ‘strong’ Richarlison but hopes Saturday’s match-winning contribution by the Brazilian can boost his confidence.

Captain Son Heung-min acknowledges that the Tottenham “family” will continue to support the resilient Richarlison.

He hopes that Richarlison’s match-winning performance on Saturday, where he came off the bench to score an equalizer in the eighth minute of stoppage time and set up Dejan Kulusevski’s winning goal two minutes later, can boost the Brazilian’s confidence.

Richarlison, who had a challenging season last year following a £60 million move from Everton, had struggled with poor form and even expressed his need for “psychological help” after a tough time on international duty.

However, his inspiring display on Saturday provided a much-needed boost, earning him praise from his captain after a euphoric victory in N17.

“Not only me, everyone in the squad and club was very happy for Richy,” Son said.

“It was tough for him and we all hoped that this game would help his confidence. He changed the whole game, that’s what we were waiting for.

“Richy, probably everyone is not happy when not in the starting XI but we know how important it is to come on and change the game like he did or Ivan (Perisic), Brennan (Johnson), Emerson (Royal), Pierre (Hojbjerg).

“Everyone did a really good job. It’s important to keep an eye on it.

“For Richy, everyone is very happy for him.

“Richy is a really strong guy, a good character and can always bounce back strong, but when you have a tough time you need good people around you.

“I always try to be a friend of him and if he needs anything then I can help him from my experience or playing-wise, also. I think everyone is standing behind him helping. He did an amazing job for this club.”
