Son Heung-min has heaped a praise on Neymar, calling him ‘best player in the world’, ahead of South Korea’s friendly against Brazil.
The Korean admitted he is ‘working hard to reach PSG star’s level one day.
Son had an impressive season with Tottenham scoring 23 goals which led him to get the Premier League’s Golden Boot.
Meanwhile, the Brazil international has 13 goals and six assists in 22 games, as his side won the Ligue 1 title.
Talking in his pre match interview via Football Daily, Spurs’ number 7 claimed:
“Neymar is the best player in the world, and I think I am working hard to become the best player in the world.
“So, rather than being an issue like that, Brazil has a lot of really good players and I think if our players do their best to show what we have to show in that game, then we can have a good result.
“Brazil has a lot of world-class players. Our players are very much looking forward to the match itself.
“And I think the most important thing is to play a good game by putting all our efforts into the match to show our best in front of a lot of fans.”
