Social media reacts after Son Heung-Min cries following Man City’s League Cup win

It’s never easy being on the losing side in a cup final – as evidenced by Tottenham’s Son Heung-Min on Sunday.

Spurs lost 1-0 to Manchester City in the League Cup final at Wembley, meaning their wait for a trophy goes on.

It is 13 years since they won the same competition, with Juande Ramos the manager on that day in 2008 as Spurs beat Chelsea 2-1 at Wembley.

Their last domestic league title came back in 1961, when they won what was then called the First Division, by eight points.

And after the defeat to City – which was sealed by Aymeric Laporte’s second half header – Spurs players and staff were understandably gutted.

Immediately after the full-time whistle, Son was seen crying on the pitch.

City duo Ilkay Gundogan and Phil Foden then walked over to console the Korean international.

It is worth noting that Son has never won a domestic trophy throughout his career, and now has two runners-up medals during his Tottenham career.

Social media was quick to react to the images, with some showing sympathy for Son:

Whilst others claimed that Son should move clubs in order to more consistently challenge for trophies:

And there were also plenty of references to the ‘Cheers, son’s crying’ meme that has flooded the Internet over the past few years:

Spurs’s attention now must turn to the Premier League, with European places still up for grabs.

Ryan Mason’s side currently sit seventh, five points off the Champions League places with a further five games to play.

They are next in action on Sunday when they take on already-relegated Sheffield United at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
