Former Spurs star Michael Brown believes Tottenham ace Son Heung-min will be ‘unstoppable’ when the Premier League restarts later this month.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the player-turned-pundit has praised Son for his work ethic on-and-off the pitch.
Last month, the South Korean told Tottenham’s official website he has nearly made a full recovery after sustaining a broken arm in February.
Son admitted the mandatory military service was a “special experience” and went on to talk about being reunited with his teammates at Hotspur Way.
The retired midfielder revealed he is impressed by the winger’s attitude up until now, and feels he will have a big part to play when the season resumes in June.
Brown told assistant editor Russell Edge “it’s one of those experiences where he’s gone and learned, learned about himself, learned about different things and the training, he’ll have still been in training and kept himself extremely sharp.
“You can see he just loves football. He’ll have gone over and done it, given everything to what he had to do and he’s back. I’m just really impressed by the person of him, he wants to do everything right.”
“All the people say good things about him, how he’s the first to offer, to do anything, great around the place – that’s great to hear.
“As a player, how he takes it both ways, he’s unstoppable, great engine, great awareness and he’s great for Spurs.”
It is hard to argue with Brown here, given Son’s performances so far.
The 27-year-old returned to training for the first time since the nationwide lockdown began after completing national service in his home country. The South Korean international impressed military officers and finished at the top of his class (Daily Mail).
Moreover, he has been in tremendous form for Jose Mourinho’s side this season, as he is the club’s second-highest goalscorer, only a goal behind star striker Kane, and he has even provided more assists than the England international (BBC).
At the moment, Mourinho’s side are currently eighth in the table, four points behind his old club Manchester United, and a point clear of derby rivals Arsenal.
As Son missed a chunk of games due to injury, he will surely be looking to prove a point and make up for lost time. Furthermore, his return will give the Portuguese a major boost as Spurs seek to challenge for Champions League football next season.
