‘Biggest idiot’ Kulusevski details what he did to cause Heung Min Son to swear at him

By Mehdi Gokal -

Dejan Kulusevski in a recent interview on a podcast shared the hilarious story of how he missed an open goal while trying to assist Heung Min Son to chase the golden boot.

Spurs played Norwich on the last day of the Premier League as they looked to book their place in the final Champions League spot. In the second half, with them already being 2 goals up, Kulusevski saw himself through on goal. He skipped past Tim Krul with an open goal in front of him but decided to square it to Son.

Recalling the incident on a recent podcast, he told DA AR VI IGANG:

“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 goal line.

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.”

Kulusevski did score an absolute banger soon after and Son followed it with a brace himself, finishing the season as the joint top scorer alongside Mo Salah.

It is refreshing to see a footballer opening up like this in an age where players are trained to be very tight-lipped with the media. Need more players to loosen up in front of the camera with this sort of honest interview!

It was clear he saw him at the last moment and tried to unselfishly square it.. Needs to work on his right foot because it was an amateur standard fluff.. Fully redeemed himself seconds later, his goal was prime Bale esq.

We must have really thought Norwich were dog meat considering it was agreed before the game that everyone should pass to Son to get him the golden boot.

We are getting a swagger! Confident group now
