'Huge...It is Phenomenal' - Exclusive: Pundit amazed by Tottenham player sighting

Paul Robinson has heaped praise on Son Heung-min after he helped Tottenham reach their first League Cup final since 2015.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former White Hart Lane number one said that the 28-year-old has a “phenomenal” ability to finish with both feet.

Son scored Spurs’ second in a 2-0 victory over Brentford in the semi-final of the League Cup last night, just days after he scored his 100th goal for the club.

Remarkably, the South Korean scored 41 of those 100 goals with his left foot and 55 with his right – the other four coming via his head.

In comparison, Juventus and Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo has only scored 18 per cent of his career goals with his left foot.

When asked by Football Insider for his thoughts on Son’s century of goals, Robinson said: “It is phenomenal.

“Son is so clinical in front of goal with both feet and that goal record is even more remarkable when you consider that he is not even a striker.

“He is only the 18th player to score 100 goals for a very prestigious club in Spurs which is a huge achievement.

“It is a fantastic achievement but the biggest credit you can give him is the amount of goals he has scored playing in behind the striker, whether that be from the left or the right.

“He has played all over and he is such an integral part of what Spurs do. He is one of the first names on the team sheet.”
