Son Heung-min will eventually come good for Tottenham Hotspur, says Owen Hargreaves.

Former Manchester United and Manchester City midfielder Owen Hargreaves said on BT Sport 2 on Thursday evening that Tottenham Hotspur fans have yet to see the best of Son Heung-min.

Hargreaves made the comments about Son in the build-up to BT Sport 2’s live coverage of the Europa League last-16 first-leg tie between Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham at Signal Iduna Park on Thursday evening (March 10).

“I think he is a very good player, he is a top player, he is only young, he is only 23 years old,” said the former Bayern Munich star. “In two seasons at Leverkusen, he scored 29 goals, so he is a natural goalscorer.”

“I think he has everything to his game,” added Hargreaves. “Spurs fans haven’t seen enough of him yet because this Spurs team is so good.”

Son joined Tottenham from German club Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2015. The South Korea international forward arrived in England with a strong reputation, but he has yet to play to the best of his abilities for Spurs.

The 23-year-old has scored two goals and created 17 chances in 21 Premier League appearances so far this campaign.

Son has a pass accuracy of 79% and a shot accuracy of 58%, and has won five headers, 14 dribbles and 21 tackles.

The former Bayer star struggled to make an impact against Dortmund on Thursday evening. Son took two shots, had a pass accuracy 75%, did not create any chance, attempted one dribble, and made one interception and three clearances.
