Son Heung-min is an important player for Tottenham Hotspur.

Michael Owen spoke highly of Tottenham Hotspur star Son Heung-min on BT Sport 2 (7:37pm, June 1, 2019).

The former Liverpool striker believes that Son is one of the best players in the Premier League, and has hailed the rise of the South Korea international.

Owen said about Son on BT Sport 2 (7:37pm, June 1, 2019): “His rise as well has been staggering over the last couple of seasons.’

The former England international striker added: “This fella, you don’t really know what you are going to get.

“He has got a trick, he has got pace, he could score with both feet, I think he has developed into one of the best players in the Premier League this season.”

Important player for Tottenham Hotspur

Son is one of the most important players in the current Tottenham team, and the 26-year-old’s rise over the past two or three seasons has been astounding.

The South Korea international, who can operate as a winger or as a forward, scores goals and creates chances, and when star striker Harry Kane was injured during this season, he stepped up.

According to WhoScored, Son made 23 starts and eight substitute appearances in the Premier League for Tottenham this season, scoring 12 goals and providing six assists in the process.

The former Bayer Leverkusen star made 11 starts and one substitute appearance in the Champions League for Spurs this campaign, scoring four goals and providing one assist in the process, according to WhoScored.
