Tottenham star Son Heung-min has labeled his team-mate Harry Kane as the “best player in the world”.
Kane, who is widely regarded as being one of the best strikers in the world, will not play again for his club till next month after suffering an ankle ligament injury during the win over Bournemouth two weeks ago.
Spurs are currently aiming to secure a top-four finish this season in order to ensure that they qualify for next seasons Champions League. They have a crucial game against fifth-placed Chelsea next Sunday in what will be a key game in terms of the top-four race this season.
While Kane is absent, Spurs could opt to utilize Son in the center of their attack. While Kane is not in the same class as Kane, he is ready to take on the extra challenge after scoring several times during his past four appearances.
“Harry Kane is, of course, very important for England because he’s the best player in the world,” – Son told Sky Sports News. “This is football, so sometimes you get injuries, but as Tottenham we need to play without Harry. It’s very sad but the other players have to be ready. I’m not like Harry, the same type, but I’m just trying to practice every single day. It’s a good opportunity to make something happen. I’ve proved a lot of things in Tottenham in two and a half years, I’ve enjoyed it a lot and I’m really happy to be there because they work hard and this is what I want.“
