Cape Town - Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino
believes it's unfortunate that the performances of Heung-min Son often gets
lost in the Harry Kane fanfare.
The industrious forward has become a vital
player for Spurs, according to Pochettino, and deserves to be given more credit
for both the strength of his performances and character.
The South Korean has scored six goals and
provided three assists in 19 Premier League appearances this campaign, but has
often gone unnoticed in the shadow of Kane, who has been drawing all the
attention due to his record breaking exploits in the Premier League.
"It's true that the headlines are
always for Harry or others, but it's important to recognise him, because he's a
very great guy, a very good professional and he's always there, scoring and
playing well," said Pochettino, as quoted by the Evening Standard.
"Personally, us the coaching staff,
we've given him the credit he deserves," he added.
"When you are next
to Harry Kane, achieving all he is and scoring so many goals, it's normal that
the focus is on Harry Kane.
"But for us it's very important to
show Sonny how much he's appreciated. And all the players, all the team, they
all love him. It's not only because of his performances, but because of how he
is as a man."
