In an interview with Britain’s “Telegraph” on the 2nd (Korea time), Porro talked about Kane’s transfer to Bayern Munich.
“Kane’s transfer was painful for everyone. He was the heart and soul of the club. I wish I could have played more with Kane because we didn’t spend a lot of time together. He is undoubtedly one of the best players in the world,” Porro said, missing Kane.
It was Son Heung-min who relieved his longing for Kane. Tottenham’s leadership faltered as Hugo Lloris gave up his position as a starting player and Kane moved. Son Heung-min took the heavy responsibility to overcome the team’s crisis. Son Heung-min, who became the first non-European captain in Tottenham’s history, was fully trusted by manager Enze Postecoglou.
It was Son who proved his performance as well. When Hishal Song failed to play the striker role properly, Postecoglou appointed Son as the center fielder. Son showed off his crazy scoring ability and perfectly proved his qualification as an ace.
Tottenham players felt the same way. “We, Tottenham, were able to overcome Kane’s absence quickly. Perhaps more prestigious voice will emerge now. For example, Son Heung-min took over the baton. Since Kane left for Munich, Son has taken a step further. I feel a sense of responsibility as well. I can feel such change both inside and outside the stadium,” Porro said, praising Son’s growth. 토토사이트
“People usually underestimate Son. Maybe it was because he always stood behind us. But Son is truly the perfect player,” he said, reiterating his claim. No club can completely erase the void created by the departure of the best player in its history. It is a matter of how to minimize the void, and Son is playing the role well in Tottenham.
During a break from the A-match in November at Football London, he also praised Son for being the captain of Tottenham and leading Tottenham in and out of transition. He was a true leader. He led the attack as a central striker and felt responsible after wearing an armband. He scored eight goals in the PL including a hat trick in the match against Burnley and showed how big a player he is in the North London derby against Arsenal.
