Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose has told the club's official website that he thinks teammate Son Heung-min is 'very under-rated' and deserves praise for his displays this season.
On Sunday afternoon, Spurs travelled to the South Coast to take on Bournemouth, and looked set for a difficult afternoon when Junior Stanislas opened the scoring for the hosts, and Harry Kane was taken off injured.
However, Dele Alli equalised before Son Heung-min bagged a brace, with Serge Aurier adding a late fourth to land Tottenham a superb 4-1 victory at the Vitality Stadium.
Mauricio Pochettino will be delighted with the way his side not only responded to going behind, but also to Kane's injury, with Son taking a striking role in Kane's absence.
The South Korean ace turned in an outstanding display in the Spurs attack, and his two goals have now taken him up to 18 goals in all competitions this season in what has been an incredible campaign.
Son, 25, almost left Spurs in the summer of 2016 having endured a tricky first season following his move from Bayer Leverkusen, but he has now become one of Pochettino's most reliable players, contributing four assists on top of his goal tally.
There is still a belief that Son is under-rated though, given that Kane, Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli grab all the headlines in the Spurs attack, and Danny Rose has told the club's official website that he does still think Son is under-rated.
Rose added that people don't see Son's attitude and bubbly personality every day, noting that he thinks Son deserves 'all the plaudits' as he approaches 20 goals this season.
“Sonny is very under-rated,” said Rose. “Goals aside, people don’t get to see his attitude on a day-to-day basis. He’s always bubbly whether or not he plays and he deserves all the plaudits. He’s now closing in on 20 goals again in all competitions and that’s something to be delighted with – we’re all delighted for him and long may it continue!” he added.
