'A manager's dream': Tim Sherwood says Tottenham have a player everyone in the world would love to have
Tim Sherwood has been piling the praise on Tottenham star Heung-Min Son, insisting any manager in the world would want the South Korean star.
Son came off the bench to fire in a hat-trick as Spurs hammered Leicester 6-2 last night. It was the perfect response from Son, who had been struggling for form and was dropped by Antonio Conte for yesterday’s fixture. Of course, Son issued the perfect response with his goals.
And speaking about Son after the game, former Spurs boss Sherwood insisted he is simply a brilliant player to have.
“There is not one manager in world football that wouldn’t want that boy. For his quality. His determination. His character. He’s got everything, he’s the whole package. Everybody, he’s a manager’s dream and I don’t care which team it is, he’s an absolute dream to manage,” Sherwood told PL Productions.
“Magnificent attitude. You listen to him after and he’s level headed. He’s took it on board, he knew he had to come on and prove a point and he did.”
Son’s performance will be exactly what Antonio Conte wanted from his man. Some players can sulk but Son simply did his talking on the field and reminded everyone of his class.
TBR’s View: Son Is World Class
Being world class takes a lot but Heung-Min Son is definitely in that category now. He was superb all last season and his blip this year is simply that, a blip.
Son’s first finish yesterday was ridiculous and it underlined everything he is about. Leicester couldn’t live with him and he seemed determined to prove a point. He did that in emphatic fashion.
If Son stays fit and Kane keeps producing as well, then Spurs fans can actually dream of ending that trophy drought this season.
