Mourinho Hails ‘World Class’ Son, Kane

Mourinho Hails ‘World Class’  Son, Kane

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has hailed Harry Kane and Son Heung-min for their deadly partnership.

The duo combined to help Tottenham Hotspur beat Arsenal 2-0 in the London derby on Sunday.

Son and Kane set up each other’s first-half strikes, meaning they have now combined for 12 goals this season, as Spurs extended their unbeaten run to 10 games, going back to the first game of the campaign.

Kane has laid on eight of Son’s goals this term, with Son returning the favour four times and Mourinho knows he is lucky to have such a high-quality duo.

“You know they are world class,” he said. “It’s as simple as that, but when we play against (Manchester) City, after the game I was speaking to the Portuguese boy, (City defender Ruben) Dias.

“I was telling him, ‘You are not going to play one single match in the Premier League where the strikers are not good’. This is the Premier League.

“But I have to admit that Harry and Sonny are world-class players and on the top of what they do they have a very good sense of the team.

“They have a very good sense of the balance that they need and they also do incredible tactical work for the team when the team doesn’t have the ball. So top players, amazing.”

    These two are among the top 5 players in the world, based on current form. But for me, at the very top is Neymar. Currently the best.
    Saw his champions league game last week. His every touch was class. He dribbled occasionally, with great purpose and intent, but passed the ball a lot more, and his passes were far more deadlier than the dribbling. His positional play was also top notch. Plus he’s scoring goals by the truckloads.
    I think we are now seeing the ultimate version of Neymar. No more dribbling to the gallery. No more messing around. This Neymar is all business.
    Our wingers should do themselves a favor and watch Neymar. A picture is worth a thousand words. Passing is a weapon that is more potent then dribbling. Timing is the key.
