Son, who can operate as a winger or as a forward, was shown a red card during Tottenham’s Premier League game against Bournemouth last season.
The South Korea international was subsequently suspended for three matches, and the 27-year-old is now available for Spurs’ game against Newcastle United in the league this weekend.
Ahead of the match, Son has apologised for his dismissal against the dismissal last season after reacting angrily to a challenge from Jefferson Lerma
Son told The Daily Star: “We were losing and the guy was in my head a little bit. There was a foul. Everything comes together and I lost my head. But I will learn from these situations. It will never happen again.
“It’s been almost three weeks now I couldn’t play and it was really painful watching my team-mates. I am sorry for what happened. But I’m ready to go now and I can’t wait.”
Son is a very good footballer who has established himself as a key figure in the Tottenham team over the years.
The 27-year-old seems to have learned from his mistake against Bournemouth last season, and his determination not to let it happen again should encourage the Tottenham fans.
Spurs have done well in the Premier League so far this season, and Son’s return to the team is only going to make Mauricio Pochettino’s side better.
