Mauricio Pochettino has said that Son Heung-Min does not get the praise he deserves for his performances for Tottenham Hotspur.
“He is so important for us,” Pochettino said of Son. “He is scoring a lot of goals and he is very consistent in training and in his performances. I think he is a very good player for us.
“It is true that maybe he doesn’t get the headlines of Harry and other players but it is good to recognise him. He is a great guy and a very good professional. He is always there and he scores a lot of goals.
“Us, the coaching staff, give him the credit that he deserves. I think last season he was very important.
It’s like a player next to Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo that deserve a lot of credit. When you are next to Harry Kane, who scores and scores, and all that he achieves it is normal that the focus is more on Harry Kane or on Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo than Son.
“But all the team love him. Not only because of his performances but because of how he is as a man.”
