Tottenham star Son Heung-min is willing to play as a fullback for Ange Postecoglou
Speaking in an interview, Tottenham Hotspur captain Son Heung-min has confirmed that he is even willing to play as a fullback if manager Ange Postecoglou asks him to.
In a season that started with uncertainties and the departure of talismanic striker Harry Kane, Son has taken up the mantle and delivered outstanding performances in a role that was previously less familiar to him.
Since being bestowed with the captain’s armband, Son has been on a goal-scoring spree, reminding everyone of his immense talent. Five goals in just six games is a testament to his newfound leadership and determination.
Notably, these goals have come with a twist – Son Heung-min has been operating as a central striker rather than his customary position on the left wing. This tactical adjustment by Postecoglou has reinvigorated the South Korean star and showcased his versatility.
In a memorable clash against Burnley, Son’s performance was nothing short of scintillating. He treated the Tottenham faithful to a hat-trick that left the opposition gasping for air. This display of clinical finishing and impeccable positioning showcased his adaptability and ability to thrive in different roles.
What sets Son apart, however, is not just his remarkable goal-scoring prowess but his unwavering commitment to the team’s cause. After the Arsenal match, Son revealed his eagerness to play wherever Postecoglou sees fit.
“The gaffer has a plan. If he plays me as a fullback, then I will do that for him. That’s how I feel, you know. If the manager chooses something different, then I will do what he asks for. Sometimes I will play as a winger and sometimes I will play as a striker. Every role is good for me. I am very happy to be part of this team and be out on the pitch. The gaffer has the best plan, so I am just trying to stick to it.”
This willingness to adapt and embrace change reflects Son’s exceptional professionalism and loyalty to the club. It also epitomizes the unity and cohesion that Postecoglou is fostering within the squad.
In recent seasons, Son has emerged as one of Tottenham’s standout players. Despite a challenging campaign last year, he has returned to his dazzling best under Postecoglou’s guidance. The manager’s tactical evolution and faith in Son’s adaptability have rekindled the spark in the South Korean sensation.
