Popular pundit claims Tottenham star is ‘not enjoying football’ under Conte

By Saikat -

Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-Min has not been at his best this season.

The 30-year-old South Korean international has scored just 10 goals across all competitions and his performances have been largely underwhelming.

As a result, Tottenham have been overly dependent on Harry Kane for goals and creativity in the final third this season.

Reflecting on the form of the South Korean international, former Tottenham player Jamie O’Hara believes that Son is not enjoying his football anymore and that is affecting his performance.

He also added that the system employed by manager Antonio Conte is failing to get the best out of Son and some of the other players as well.

O’Hara told GIVEMESPORT“I don’t think we’re getting the best out of him in terms of the way we’re playing.

“He ends up playing like a left-wing-back. If you watch us play, we say it’s 3-4-3, but it’s not, it’s 5-4-1. Harry Kane is up there on his own. Dejan Kulusevski and Son can’t get beyond.

“I think they’ve all lost the will to live a bit at the moment and the will to get out there. He looks like he’s not enjoying football.”

Tottenham have had a mixed campaign so far. After an impressive start to the season, they have produced some poor performances and now find themselves scrapping for the fourth and final Champions League spot.

Missing out on a top-four finish could be a devastating blow to the club’s finances and it remains to be seen whether Antonio Conte can switch things around and get the best out of his players once again.

Tottenham will be hoping to finish the season strongly and they will need key players like Son to step up in the coming weeks.

The 30-year-old is a world-class player on his day and he is capable of winning matches all on his own for Spurs. Son won the Premier League golden boot last season and the fans will be hoping he can recapture that form.
