& # 39; I didn't know! & # 39 ;: Son Heung-min is told that during a TV interview he is confronted with a ban on the Champions League after he shone in the exciting Tottenham quarterfinals over Manchester City
- Son Heung-min was the hero of Tottenham against Manchester City on Wednesday
- The South Korean scored twice in a 4-3 loss, as Spurs had the upper hand over goals
- But Son will miss the first part of the semifinal of Tottenham in the Champions League
- The son is suspended after he has picked up his third European booking this season
Tottenham will be without Son Heung-min for the first match of the semi-final of the Champions League against Ajax.
Son will be banned for the game in London after picking up his third European yellow card of the season during Wednesday's 4-3 loss in Manchester City.
The South Korean icon scored twice to help Spurs achieve goals and had scored the winner eight days earlier in a first 1-0 win. But Tottenham cannot reach him when Ajax visits his new stadium, after Son was booked to match Kevin De Bruyne's shirt shortly after the break.

Son scored twice at Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night, with his first early arrival
City keeper Ederson was well beaten by a curling shot for Son & # 39; s second of the game
Son was unaware of his suspension until a journalist on German television asked him how he felt about it. He replied: & # 39; I didn't know! & # 39;
Tottenham will be without Harry Kane for both matches against Ajax, although he might be fit if they go to the final in Madrid on June 1. Kane suffered a & # 39; significant lateral ligament injury to his left ankle & # 39; in the first leg against City.
Ex-England captain Rio Ferdinand is impressed by how Son was staged in Kane's absence – not only in the past eight days, but also earlier in the season when he scored four goals in four games while Kane was offside another ankle injury.
Ferdinand told BT Sport at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday evening: & Unbelievable. You have to remember that this is without their talisman. Harry Kane didn't play today. The Spurs fans would have been worried – "Oh we don't have our chief".
& # 39; But that guy likes responsibility. Son takes that on the chin and says, "Yes, give it to me, I'll take all that responsibility, I'll bear that now."
& # 39; The way he played, especially in the first half, was beautiful. & # 39;
Son was shown a yellow card for a foul on Kevin De Bruyne and now serves a suspension
Rio Ferdinand of BT Sport was full of praise for Son and described his performance as & # 39; beautiful & # 39;
