TOTTENHAM forward Heung-min Son insists he has learned his lesson from his latest red card.
The South Korean was back for Spurs in the 1-1 FA Cup draw at Middlesbrough after serving a three-match ban for his dismissal against Chelsea before Christmas.
Son kicked Antonio Rudiger and received a straight red for the third time since May, albeit one of them was rescinded on appeal.
‘It has already passed, I don’t want to speak or think about it,’ Son said of his ban. ‘I am trying to learn something about this situation. Three red cards is not something I want. It is not something I expected but three red cards, it was painful.’
Son struggled in the No.9 role at Boro as he filled in for Harry Kane, who is set to miss a couple of months with a hamstring injury.
‘It was not the result we wanted but I am glad to be back,’ he added. ‘Harry got injured and other players have to step up.’
