Tottenham star Heung-Min Son explains his desire every time he plays

White Hart Lane

The recent Tottenham Hotspur signing simply loves to score.

Tottenham Hotspur’s summer signing Heung-Min Son has been speaking to the Yonhap News Agency about how he feels every time he takes to the field.

The South Korea international has recently been side-lined through injury but he made a late substitute appearance against Arsenal at the weekend and he is now focusing on upcoming matches against Myanmar and Laos during the international break.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino will no doubt want Son to be fit and ready for the upcoming Premier League games, so he may be watching nervously in the coming days, but the double-header could ensure the 23-year-old returns to White Hart Lane ready to make a big impact.

Son has already scored three goals and provided one assist in seven matches for Tottenham this season, and in comments published online, he confirmed just how much getting the ball in the back of the net means to him.

“If I do get to play, I will give everything I have,” Son said. “It’s important to get the first goal early.

“I am looking to score every time I enter a game, whether it’s for the club or the national team, but football isn’t an individual sport.”

Tottenham have blossomed under Pochettino this season and they are in with a very good chance of finishing in the top-four come May; but for that to happen they will need Son to continue his impressive start now that his injury woes are seemingly behind him.
