‘What the f*** are you doing.. you idiot’ – Tottenham star Kulusevski ‘ashamed’ for letting Son down in Golden Boot race

DEJAN KULUSEVSKI has recounted the hilarious story of how he botched a square pass to Son Heung-min on the final day of the season.

The Tottenham star was in action against Norwich as his side looked to seal a top four place.

With the points already all but safe at 2-0, Kulusevski’s mind turned to trying to help his pal Son out, with the South Korean chasing Mo Salah in the Golden Boot race.

Just after the hour mark, the Swede skipped past Tim Krul, with the empty net at his mercy.

Recounting what happened next, he told DA AR VI IGANG: “I’m like ‘take a deep breath, take your time Dejan you have an open goal.’

“I’m staring at it, you know, it’s definitely empty! But I take one more touch, then I think ‘maybe it is time to finally shoot’.

“But then I see Son! I see my team-mate Son, and he is like ‘pass me the ball!’

“He needs one more goal to win the Golden Boot and we all said before the game that we need to pass to Son.

“You know, Son has to win the Golden Boot. So I’m like ‘Dejan, forget about the goal, you have to assist Son’.

“I pass the ball, and when I pass the ball I get stuck in the ground, so it becomes a wrong touch and the ball just rolls slowly towards the goal.


“And they clear the ball at the goalline.

“And I just stand there after thinking ‘bro… Dejan… what the f*** are you doing?’

“I’m thinking ‘you are the biggest idiot’ and I felt so ashamed and I got so frustrated and was like ‘give me the ball again’.

“Then two minutes later I get the ball again and don’t think at all, I just put the ball into the top corner.”

After Kulusevski bagged his second of the afternoon, Son did finally get in on the act.

The 29-year-old bagged twice in the final 20 minutes to take his final tally to 23 – level with Salah.

This saw Spurs’ No7 share the Golden Boot with Liverpool’s Egyptian star.

The duo went on to congratulate each other on Twitter for their impressive achievements.
