Son Heung-Min must always try to do better to stay at his best, says Son Woong-Jung

Son Heung-Min’s father, Son Woong-Jung, thinks his son should always strive to do better than before and admitted that if he stops working, he won’t be as good as he is. is actually. The South Korean striker thrived for Tottenham last season, contributing 34 goals in all competitions.

Since moving to Tottenham, few players have been as consistent as Son Heung-Min for the North Londoners with just Harry Kane on par with South Korea. The 29-year-old arrived in the summer of 2015 and has since contributed to 204 goals in just over 320 appearances. That includes double the figures for goals in the league over the past six consecutive seasons, including a 23-goal season that saw him with his first Golden Boot last season.

It saw Son become the first Asian player to do so and the South Korean’s performances saw Spurs finish over their rivals. Arsenal in a Champions League spot. However, despite the 29-year-old’s form and prolific nature, Son Woong-jung believes the South Korean needs to keep improving. Not only that, the striker’s father added that he ‘always wants him to be 10% better’ every year and to do that Son has to ‘work harder’.

“He has to work harder and make more progress. If he’s happy with what he’s achieved now, the crisis is coming. He always has to try to do better to stay in the best shape, don’t you think? Instead of being happy to stay where he is, I still want him to be 10% better,” Son Woong-jung said, Goal reported.

The 29-year-old’s constant displays have seen plenty of clamor for the striker to leave Tottenham and sign for a bigger side, although no move has materialized so far. But in light of this, Son Woong-jung added that the only way his son will be considered a world-class player is when he can “play a solid role at one of the best clubs in the world”.

“He [Son] must be able to play a solid role in one of the best clubs in the world. It was then that he would become a world-class player. He’s scored a lot of goals this year, but that doesn’t mean he’ll do the same next year. Only those who stay ready can survive the difficulties. He has to face everything with a cautious mind and cannot afford to be too proud,” he added.
