Agent of Heung-Min Son sheds light on why his client opted for Tottenham move

Tottenham WHL

The winger is set to make his Tottenham Hotspur bow this weekend.

Heung-Min Son’s representative, Thies Bliemeister, has shed light on some of the factors behind the South Korean opting to join Spurs this summer, in quotes published by the London Evening Standard.

The former Bayer Leverkusen winger arrived late to bolster Tottenham’s attacking options, and Bliemeister cite’s Mauricio Pochettino as a key factor in his client’s decision to do so.

“The coach was really important for our decision. For me he is a fantastic coach and it is not always easy to find a coach with a good character,” he said.

A belief in the project currently being implemented at Spurs was given as another, and a return to Europe’s premier competition during Son’s stay is the target.

“We think Tottenham have a great coach and a good young team, and we believe they will play in the Champions League while Son is there," Bliemeister went on to say.

Two current Spurs stars also received a special mention, with the Korean's camp excited at the prospect of the 23-year old lining up alongside the Lilywhites’ key men.

“With Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen there, it should be a good combination with Son,” he added in the London Evening Standard.

The winger is in line to make his debut this Sunday against Sunderland, and it will be a surprise if he doesn’t feature in some capacity.

His goal threat and pace will add a much needed injection of quality to the Spurs attack and his versatility means he could end up being the solution to Tottenham’s long-standing right sided problem.

Erik Lamela and Andros Townsend have failed to nail down the position and Mousa Dembele was only ever a stop-gap, leaving the stage well and truly set for Son's entrance.
