With the Sky Sports pundit insisting that the forward must be held in the same regard as Raheem Sterling and Mo Salah, Gary Neville hailed Tottenham Hotspur star Son Heung-min as ‘so underrated.’
The South Korean got his campaign off to a flying start finishing nine goals and four assists in eight outings, with his winner against Burnley on Monday night.
After a very disappointing 2019-20 season as Jose Mourinho’s side looks to climb the Premier League table the 28-year-old has entered into a formidable strike partnership with Harry Kane.
“I think Son is so understated and he doesn’t get the glitz of some of the other top players in the league,” Neville said on .
“He is an absolutely amazing player Son, he is a brilliant player. It’d be a nightmare to play against him he makes all the right runs.”
“You talk about Sterling regularly, we talk about Mane and Salah at Liverpool, he’s right there with them. If he was at Liverpool or City he’d be doing what those lads are doing.”
Neville added: “When Son was out last season he was a huge miss. As I said before the game he doesn’t get the credit.”
“I think Jose Mourinho was asked a question last week about when does he becomes world-class Son and Jose said he was already there.”
“They’re (Kane and Son) brilliant together, brilliant players and I think every team in the world would take Son. There isn’t a team in Europe or in the Premier League that wouldn’t take him.”
