Tottenham and South Korea attacker Heung-min Son has announced he has joined Twitter – but fans are saying the photo he uploaded doesn’t look like him.
The Spurs star joined the social media site on Tuesday night under the handle @Sonny7. He wrote in a tweet: “hi everyone this is the real me, excited to open my twitter!!” and put under that in Korean: “Hello, my name is Heung-Min Son. I finally opened my official Twitter! I hope to be able to share more fun and happy news here with fans in the future 🙂 Please look forward to it.”
Along with the tweet, the 29-year-old uploaded a picture of himself smiling with a windbreaker over a blue top. But fans were quick to notice that the image of himself does not reflect his normal look.
One asked: “Is it me or does this not…. look like Son?” Another said: “Deep fake.”
A third posted: “It's a weird one man had me analysing for 5 mins to be sure.” One stated: “I would have said that was a Son Heung-min lookalike in that photo rather than the man himself.”
Despite scarcely being online for 12 hours, the account has amassed over 200k followers on Twitter. It follows on from the 6.2million followers Son has on Instagram already.
Do you think Tottenham can clinch a top-four spot? Let us know in the comments section below
The former Bayer Leverkusen star scored twice in what was a match-winning performance in the 3-1 win over Leicester on Sunday. The victory boosts Spurs' chances of a top-four spot, but they will still need to overcome Arsenal next Thursday (May 12).
Spurs are currently fifth in the table, two points behind the Gunners who are in fourth. A victory over their arch-rivals would put the chances of earning a Champions League spot firmly in their hands.
Question marks remain over Antonio Conte’s future at the club, however. When asked by football.london to provide fans with some clarity, he said: "In this moment our fans, me, the players, the club, the fans we need to be focused, we need to be concentrated on an important target for us. We have a big opportunity to try to get a place in the Champions League.”
He continued: "It's a big opportunity for us because no one can imagine to stay and fight for this target in this league now in this moment. In the past it was different, but now you know very well what I said in the past that it would be a miracle to get this achievement.”
