Antonio Conte’s verdict on Son Heung-min

The Tottenham head coach told Football.London about Son: “For me, Sonny is a really, really good player, a top player. He’s a modern player. He has great quality.

“He’s fast, he’s resilient, he’s strong. When you have all these characteristics, it means that you’re a top player and Sonny has all these characteristics.”

World-class player

In our opinion, Son is a world-class footballer.

And he has been so for a number of years.

Yes, the 29-year-old has been unusually quiet so far this season, but Harry Kane is not having the best of seasons either.

We cannot ignore the numbers that Son has been getting for a while.

Son has scored five goals and provided one assist in 12 Premier League games so far this season.

The Tottenham no. 7 scored 17 goals and gave 10 assists in the league last season.

In 2019-20, Son scored 11 goals and provided 10 assists in the Premier League.

Conte is a world-class manager who has won league titles with Chelsea, Juventus and Inter Milan.

The Italian tactician knows a quality player when he sees one.

Conte publicly praising Son so highly reaffirms to Tottenham fans just how good the 29-year-old is.

For Tottenham to finish in the top four of the Premier League table this season, Son will have to be on top form.
