Video: Antonio Conte was annoyed with £26m Tottenham player just seconds before Son scored against Leicester
Tottenham manager Antonio Conte looked frustrated with defender Emerson Royal seconds before Son Heung-min made it 2-0 on Sunday.
Spurs brushed aside a Foxes side who had one eye on their Europa Conference League semi-final second leg with Roma.
Son scored a brace, including a stunning left-footed strike but it was before his first goal that Conte seemed to show his frustration with £26 million (BBC) man Royal.
The former Barcelona man has had a mixed first campaign at the club and it has been reported that Conte already wants a new right wing-back.
Tottenham posted a video of Conte’s reactions to certain situations in the game on their official YouTube channel.
The ball went into Royal and the camera cut to Conte, who looked frustrated, before the move developed into one which Son scored from.
Dejan Kulusevski played a smart pass into Son, who doubled Tottenham’s lead and essentially made the game safe there and then.
Will Conte look to move Emerson on?
The wingbacks are so crucial to Conte’s Spurs plans and the quality and energy Conte has to have in those roles has to be right.
There have been plenty of examples of players across the Premier League who have struggled in their first season before coming good.
