Antonio Conte claims Tottenham have a truly 'top' talent, who's fast, resilient and strong

Antonio Conte has praised Tottenham forward Son Heung-min ahead of their Premier League weekend fixture against Norwich City. Son has been incredible for the Lillywhites since joining in 2015 from Bayer Leverkusen for a reported £22million. The South Korea international is closing in on 300 competitive appearances for Spurs and has registered 113 goals and 66 assists. Head coach Conte, speaking ahead of Sunday’s meeting with Norwich, said he sees Son as a No. 10. The Italian also paid homage to Son’s “modern” traits that make him a “top” player.
“For me, with this system we’re playing we’ve two number 10s, but for me, they’re two strikers,” Conte told football.london.   “We’re playing with a number nine that is Kane, as a point of reference.   “Then two players very offensive, like Sonny and Lucas, in the starting XI because behind we have Bergwijn, Dele Alli, Lo Celso and Bryan Gil.   “For me, Sonny is a really, really good player, a top player. He’s a modern player.   “He has great quality. He’s fast, he’s resilient, he’s strong.   “When you have all these characteristics, it means that you’re a top player and Sonny has all these characteristics.”
