Football pundit and one of the most respected voices in the game, Garth Crooks, has been waxing lyrical about Spurs attacker Heung-min Son and labelled him ‘one of the most improved players in the Premier League.’
Crooks took the time to acknowledge the Korean import who has come on leaps and bounds since his £17million arrival from German side Bayer Leverkusen in 2015.
A lot was made at the time about the high transfer fee and the fact that he was a relatively unknown quantity but Son has improved year on year and Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has kept faith in the 25-year-old.
“The South Korean is renowned for his energy and covers the ground with enormous alacrity,” Crooks wrote in his BBC Sport column.
“What I like most about him is that he genuinely plays the game with a smile on his face.
“I get the impressed sometimes when he plays for Spurs that he is so grateful to be playing at Tottenham at all.
“I have said before that I think Son is one of the most improved players in the Premier League and against Everton he proved it once again.”
The South Korean has hit the back of the net 11 times this season after making 30 appearances already, that compared with the eight goals the midfielder registered in the entirety of his debut season and it is easy to see why Son’s name is growing in notoriety.
