Tottenham forward Heung-min Son was elated after scoring two goals to help Spurs to a historic victory over Manchester City in the Champions League, but it all came crashing down during a post-match interview.
In the second leg of their quarter-final clash on Wednesday night, fans were left in shock over the frenetic start and finish to the game where Manchester City won the match 4-3, but Tottenham progressed on away goals after the tie finished 4-4 on aggregate.
The two-goal hero was speaking to a German reporter post-match when he was told he wouldn’t be eligible to play in the semi-final against Ajax because he was suspended for picking up too many yellow cards.

“I didn’t know,” Son reportedly responded in shock as the news dawned on the Spurs star.
Son picked up two yellow cards in the tournament leading up to this game and picked up his third in the 48th minute.
The three yellow cards trigger a one-match ban for the South Korean.
Tottenham will also be missing key forward Harry Kane after a season-ending injury.
