  • S. Korea football coach Stielike warns Spurs star Son over attitude

    South Korea coach Uli Stielike has slammed the attitude of Son Heung-Min, despite the attacker earning rave reviews for his match-winning performances for Tottenham in the English Premier League (EPL). Stielike rebuked the 24-year-old Son, who has scored four goals in his last two league games as Tottenham rose to second in the English Premier League table, for his "problematic" behaviour. "As many people have already seen from the stands or on television, I think his behaviour away from the field can be problematic," warned Stielike Monday as he selected Son as his first-choice front man in a 23-man squad for World Cup qualifiers against Qatar and Iran next month.
