Tottenham Hotspur star Son Heung-min has claimed that he is not among the Premier League’s best players. The Spurs attacking midfielder has firmly established himself as one of the top flight’s elite players.
Son has scored eight goals in eight appearances, helping Spurs to second in the table. But despite his achievements at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
However, Son insists he has never considered himself on par with the likes of Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah or Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne.
“I’ve never once thought I am among the best players in the Premier League,” Son said in an interview with the Korea Football Association (KFA) YouTube channel. “Honestly, I’ve never thought that for a moment. I have always tried to do my best for Tottenham and in the national team and try to show all my abilities. It feels different to play for the national team and for Spurs. We will prepare well so that we can play as well as we can for the fans.”
