Tottenham Hotspurs player Son Heung-min will not marry until he retires as he insists he cannot totally love football if he has a family.

Son Heung-Min has been a key player for Tottenham virtually since his arrival from Bayer Leverkusen in 2015.

The South Korean international is an all-in kind of player, who is fully committed to the cause.

In an interview with The Guardian, he insists that football is his only love in life, and it will stay that way until he retires.

The left-winger reveals how a lesson in life from his father sets things in perspective.

He explains:

“My father says this and I agree, as well, when you marry, the number one will be family, wife and kids, and then football.”

“I want to make sure that while I play at the top level, football can be number one.”

“You don’t know how long you can play at the top level. When you retire, or when you are 33 or 34, you can still have a long life with your family.”
