“Son’s crying” – Tottenham star becomes a meme courtesy of cup final defeat and Gary Neville

Tottenham star Heung-min Son became a walking meme when the full-time whistle blew at the end of the 2021 Carabao Cup final.

Son was unable to have any sort of influence in the contest, with Spurs falling to a 1-0 defeat to Manchester City without posing a threat at any point throughout the 90 minutes.

You can understand that the South Korean was upset at the full-time whistle, even going as far as breaking down in tears on the Wembley turf. Cheer up, mate, it’s only the Carabao.

As if losing in a cup final and crying in front of an entire nation wasn’t bad enough, Twitter fast caught on that the Spurs forward had capped off a terrible day by becoming a classic meme.

In case you’re not aware of what we’re talking about here, in which case you probably think we’ve gone absolutely bonkers, here’s the original meme, which is commonly referenced when something bad happens.

You can’t convince us that Gary Neville didn’t know what he has doing when he said the EXACT words, too. Neville’s been an absolute star over the past week, and he’s put the cherry on top of it all here.

    This is a spurs Web site and too see one our stars being ridiculed for his frustration is a total disgrace, whoever runs this site should block stuff like this

    I actually couldn’t disagree with you more, I get that Son is passionate about what he does, but frankly speaking as a longtime Spurs fan neither he as a player or Tottenham as a side played well enough to warrant such an emotional outpouring of disappointment. The fact is Spurs have been vastly underwhelming all season and no longer seem to gel as a squad, and the players have to shoulder a good deal of responsibility for that as the hunger, effort and unity simply aren’t there.I really don’t get the direction Spurs are supposed to be going and under Levy’s ‘guidance’ I fear it may well get alot worse before it gets any better!
