Tottenham ace Danny Rose spoke to reporters in the aftermath of his side's comfortable 4-1 away win at Bournemouth on Sunday, and raved about the quality of Heung-Min Son, suggesting that he is very underrated, as quoted by the club's official website.

The South Korean has been a revelation for Spurs this season, chipping in with 18 goals and nine assists in 43 appearances in all competitions thus far.

Son joined the Lilywhites from Bayer Leverkusen int he summer of 2015, for a fee believed to be worth in the region of £18 million, but initially struggled to settle in north London.

He has now well and truly established himself as one of Mauricio Pochettino's most important players, however, and he could now see his responsibility increase even further still, with Harry Kane set to be absent from action for a prolonged period with an ankle injury.

Rose spoke to reporters about Son's performance against Bournemouth, and suggested that the 25-year-old is very underrated, as quoted by the club's official website:

“Sonny is very under-rated. 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!”

Next up for Spurs is their FA Cup quarter final clash with Swansea City on Saturday, and Son will surely have an important role to play for his side once again, if they are to progress through to the semis.
