Heung-Min Son assesses his Tottenham debut and Pochettino has his say

The South Korea international made his debut for Tottenham Hotspur this weekend.

Heung-Min Son has been speaking to Tottenham Hotspur’s official Twitter account after making his debut for the club, while manager Mauricio Pochettino has also had his say in comments published by the London Evening Standard.

Son signed for Tottenham from Bayer Leverkusen during the summer transfer window but he could not score or assist on his debut against Sunderland this weekend and was replaced by Andros Townsend just after the hour-mark.

Speaking after the game, Son said, “It was amazing to make my debut. I can definitely play better. I’m very happy we’ve got our first win.”

The South Korea star can certainly play better than this, but it was always going to be hard playing for a new club away from home after the international break; not that Pochettino was disappointed.

“I am very happy with Son, he played really well,” the Tottenham boss told the Standard.

Son was brought in to help ease the goal-scoring burden on England international Harry Kane but despite the striker’s recent goals for the Three Lions he could not break his duck for Tottenham this season, even with his new teammate playing in behind.

That will surely change sooner rather than later, and given Son’s talent and previous form in the Bundesliga, expect him to have justified his price-tag by the end of the current campaign.
