‘I’m so grateful’: Son Heung-min says he’s absolutely loving working with ‘fantastic’ Tottenham man

Following Tottenham Hotspur’s victory against Burnley on Saturday, Son Heung-min expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to work with Ange Postecoglou.

Son was speaking to Optus Sport after his outstanding hat-trick helped Spurs defeat Turf Moor 5-2 to maintain their position as one of the league’s leaders.

Ange Postecoglou’s tenure as Tottenham manager has off to an incredible start. Of course, it is simple to forget that the Australian had to watch his greatest player depart the team just a few days before the season’s first match.

And yet, Tottenham have taken 10 points from their opening four games. There was some frustration at their Carabao Cup exit in the week. But Postecoglou has taken little time to capture the imagination of supporters since his arrival in the summer.

Son lauds Postecoglou after Tottenham win

And it seems that the players are absolutely loving working under Postecoglou. Son was asked about the new Spurs boss after the win against Vincent Kompany’s side. And he could not have praised the 58-year-old higher.

“Look, I’m so grateful that I’m working with him,” he told Optus Sport. “And I learned so many things as a player, but also as a human being.

And while the voyage has been amazing thus far, I believe that working together in the future will be much more enjoyable, so I will comply with all of his requests because he provides us with so much valuable knowledge as a person and manager. We are therefore thrilled to be working with him. He probably appreciates having this collection of players, too. But I believe that in order to please him, players should shoulder greater responsibility.

You can definitely see why Son enjoys his job working for Postecoglou. Evidently, Tottenham has had some illustrious individuals as club managers over the past few years.

However, Son generally failed last season under Antonio Conte. And it was a difficult moment for the fans because the style of football played on display didn’t attract many fans.

Tottenham is currently playing so freely. In the first four games, only Brighton has scored more goals. Son’s hat-trick puts him off the pace for the current campaign.

Spurs’ style of play will make for some more challenging periods. However, supporters can now enter every game with the conviction that they can defeat any opponent in the division.


Agreement expected soon as Tottenham poised to offload centre-back for massive financial loss

Despite having a role to play from the bench for Ange Postecoglou, Tottenham is reportedly prepared to sell a center back to Turkey in the coming days.

Although the transfer market closed in England on Friday, Spurs can still sell players to specific nations, and it appears like former record-signing Davinson Sanchez may be the next man to go.

Rudy Galetti, a transfer expert, claims that the 27-year-old is nearing a deal to Galatasaray. The two clubs are now negotiating to finalize the trade, so the specifics should be worked out soon.

Selling Sanchez now would be somewhat of a shock, given that he is the third-choice centre-back behind Cristian Romero and Micky van de Ven.

The Colombian played the entirety of the opening weekend match at Brentford due to Romero’s injury and was given a start in the Carabao Cup loss at Fulham, where he missed the crucial penalty in the shootout.

By allowing Japhet Tanganga to leave on loan and keeping Eric Dier out of favor under Postecoglou, Spurs would be severely lacking at center-back if Sanchez left as well.

Galetti contends that Sanchez would be better off at Galatasaray, where he would be able to restart his career by playing frequently for the first squad in Turkey.
