Supporters of Tottenham Hotspur have fumed over a claim which has emerged regarding Spurs duo Harry Kane and Heung-min Son.

On Wednesday, The Guardian shared more players on their ‘The 100 best male footballers in the world 2020′ list and with numbers 11-100 released, the positions of Kane and Son were revealed.

The South Korean attacker came in at number 22 and Spurs’ English striker was only marginally further up the list in 20th position.

Between themselves and number 11, the only other Premier League representatives were Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes (21st), Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold (18th) and Thiago Alcantara (17th).

This claim was relayed to Spurs fans on Twitter by Hotspur Related and it had lots of them talking.

As mentioned by the previous supporter, Internazionale’s Romelu Lukaku finished above both of the Spurs attackers in 19th position on The Guardian’s list.

Do Harry Kane and Heung-min Son deserve to be higher on the list?
