BBC Sport pundit Garth Crooks has suggested that Son Heung-min has really stepped up his game since being named the captain of the club.
He has been one of the club’s best players since several years now and has consistently performed for Spurs.
He scored a hat-trick against Burnley during their 5-2 win win and scored a brace against Arsenal on Sunday.
That’s 5 goals in 6 games for the Tottenham captain now.
Last season he struggled under Italian manager Antonio Conte scoring only 10 goals in the league.
But he is back to his best under the Australian manager.
And Garth Crooks claims that Son has massively stepped up his game since assuming the role of a captain.
He told BBC after the game:
“This was an impressive Tottenham performance against their north London rivals. To go behind twice away at Emirates Stadium having had the most shocking penalty decision awarded against you takes some steel and Son displayed plenty of it.”
“Since the departure of Harry Kane to Bayern Munich, I detect a maturity in Son’s game I haven’t seen before – I also see a better team player this season. Both of Tottenham’s goals were brilliantly taken by Son.”
There have been reports that Tottenham are set to offer him a new bumper contract which will see him earn big wages at the club.
It’s reported that the player is keen on extending his stay at the North London club as well.
