Danny Mills claims that Tottenham winger Heung-min Son is “massively underrated” after playing his part in the club’s 2-2 draw against Arsenal on Sunday.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Football Insider, the former Manchester City and England international says that the South Korean demonstrated his “incredible” work rate once again at the Emirates Stadium, playing a crucial role in Spurs’ dangerous counter-attacks.
The Lilywhites managed to take a two-goal lead thanks to a Christian Eriksen tap-in and a Harry Kane penalty, but the points were shared after Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang netted in the second half.
Mills says that people do not realise the huge impact that Son has on the Tottenham attack, bringing not only energy and enthusiasm but consistency to the side every time he plays.
Mills told Football Insider: “He’s a fabulous player, I think he’s massively underrated.
“His quality, his ability, his discipline and his work rate are absolutely exceptional, he very rarely lets you down in any way, shape or form.
“Yes, all players miss chances and have off moments but overall, the way that he plays – his energy and enthusiasm – his effort for the team is incredible.”
Son was a mainstay for Tottenham last season, playing 48 times, scoring 20 goals and contributing 10 assists across all competitions.
The 27-year-old has featured in a number of roles across the Tottenham forward line, including playing as a centre-forward in the absence of Harry Kane.
He was forced to miss the first two games of the current campaign through suspension but made an immediate return to Mauricio Pochettino’s starting XI against Manchester City, keeping his place for the first north London derby of the season.
