Tottenham Hotspur head coach Jose Mourinho has raved about Son Heung-min, as quoted on Sky Sports.
Mourinho has praised the consistency of Son and has hailed him for his performances season after season.
The former Chelsea and Manchester United manager has added that the 28-year-old South Korea international cannot do more than what he is doing at the moment, and has suggested that he is already a world-class footballer.
When asked what Son needs to do to become a world-class player, Mourinho said, as quoted on Sky Sports: “It is up to you – he cannot do more than what he does! Season after season after season Sonny is showing how good he is.
“Of course, the better the team is the easier it is for the players to emerge. But Sonny is Sonny, everybody knows what he now needs to do to go to a next step – nothing. It is up to you to do that.”
Is Son Heung-min world class?
Son has been on the books of Tottenham since 2015 and has done extremely well for the North London club over the years.
The South Korea international has changed his game from being a winger to a forward who scores goals and creates chances for his teammates.
Son is at the top of his game now, and he is not showing any signs of slowing down at all.
The former Bayer Leverkusen star would be an asset for any club in the Premier League and would make them stronger.
According to WhoScored, the 28-year-old has scored seven goals and provided two assists in the Premier League so far this season, while in 2019-20, he scored 11 goals and provided 10 assists in the league and scored 12 goals and provided six assists in the league in 2018-19.
