"It's true that Son doesn't get the headlines of Harry Kane and other players. Not only because of his performances but because of how he is as a man".
Son is one of the biggest stars in South Korea, where he is a celebrity comparable to David Beckham. He is always there and he scores a lot of goals. I think last season he was very important.
It must be hard on some level to play on a team with Harry Kane. He escaped with a rebuke from the referee and was immediately substituted by manager Mauricio Pochettino. Fernando Llorente could be given his first Premier League start of the season for Tottenham Hotspur. OK, you can play with more than one striker but when you have Harry Kane it is hard to say to him, 'You are not playing'.
However, they will have a tough challenge to contend with in the clash going by the form of their opponent coupled by their unimpressive displays lately which had left them at the base of the log with 16 points from 21 ties.
The Tottenham striker has finished as the division's top goal-scorer in the last two seasons with 25 and 29 goals. Even Christian Eriksen, for all his ability, is unlikely to duplicate the scoring output of Kane. He's a kind of player who is flexible, and who can slot into a variety of positions as needed, and do a job.
"But I am happy with people like Sonny, who is not a specialist". He is not a striker but he can play like a striker.
However, it won't be a straight cash-deal with our aforementioned source suggesting that a bid for Kane will signal the end of Gareth Bale's time with the cub with the Welsh winger being offered as part of a player-plus-cash exchange deal. "That is the good thing in the squad".
Son has scored nine goals this season but Pochettino says he doesn't get the credit he deserves because playing with Kane is like playing with Lionel Messi.
