Tottenham Hotspur star Heung-min Son wants more goals for club and country

The Spurs forward has never been a prolific scorer.

This week it became clear that Tottenham Hotspur might be without Heung-min Son for the start of next season.

The South Korean is in line for a call-up to the Olympic squad should South Korea qualify for the games in Rio de Janeiro next year.

The forward would only be missing for a couple of games at most so it should not be much of a loss, that's if he even accepts the invitation and depending on South Korea actually qualifying.

Son however has made it clear this week that there is nothing he likes more than scoring for South Korea and he has made it his aim to score more goals for both club and country:

“It’s amazing to score for South Korea. It’s very important for me and I want to score more next year.

“I know I can score more for South Korea and for Spurs. Scoring isn’t everything but I want to play well for the team, the staff and the fans.

“It’s not easy to score goals but I’ll try everything to do it for Spurs and at international level. I’ll try 100 per cent or even more – 120 per cent.”

Son is a very talented individual but it is perhaps fair to say he could score more goals than he currently does. His 17 goals in 42 games was his best tally yet last season with Leverkusen and his three in seven for Spurs seems about par for the 23-year-old.

Hopefully he can begin to improve his goal tally for the club and his country soon as he aims to take the next step in his development.
