Heung-Min Son insists he can play even better for Tottenham Hotspur

White Hart Lane 4

Heung-Min Son has scored five goals in his first 29 appearances for Tottenham Hotspur.

Heung-Min Son has insisted in the Hampstead and Highgate Newspaper that he can still play much better for Tottenham Hotspur.

The South Korean international was brought to Spurs from Bayer Leverkusen last summer, and he has had a bright first season in English football.

The 23-year-old is already a fans favourite at White Hart Lane, but Son is adamant that he still has more to offer Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

“I came back after injury and now I feel better than before,” he said. “If we win I’m very happy but if we don’t… I know I can play much better and I can score more as well, but I have to try together with the team. I will be doing everything for the team.”

Son has so far played a rotational role at Tottenham, and he has been forced to complete with the likes of Nacer Chadli and Erik Lamela for a place in the starting line-up.

Son has certainly given Spurs a different option going forward, and his work-rate has meant that he has slotted in naturally with Pochettino’s preferred style of play.

The energetic forward has so far made 29 appearances for Spurs, scoring on five occasions.

Son started in Tottenham’s most recent fixture against Crystal Palace, but he was unable to inspire his side to victory.

The Lilywhites lost 1-0 to Palace to crash out of the FA Cup, and the defeat ended an eight-game unbeaten streak.

Tottenham’s next match comes against Fiorentina in the Europa League on Thursday evening.
