Journalist Alasdair Gold has slammed Tottenham Hotspur star man Heung-min Son for his performance against Wolves, with Gold claiming he was ‘off the pace’ throughout.
Spurs narrowly escape an embarrassing home draw to Wolves as star man Harry Kane bagged a 64th-minute headed goal after a lovely flick from Ivan Perisic in the box, which would end up being the decisive goal despite many Spurs chances.
However, one player who did not play to his best ability was Son, who had had chances to score but failed to do so with Gold claiming he was off the pace and even argued with his captain Hugo Lloris for his nonchalant attitude.
Gold wrote for Football London, “Off the pace in the first half with some loose touches before brightening up after the break with some attacks and one chance that was blocked. He was on the end of a rollicking from Lloris in the second half after the goalkeeper wanted to throw him the ball to break but he instead was telling him to calm down the play.
“Son responded with a shot against the post and then in the 64th minute by curling in a cross that Perisic flicked on to Kane to score. Not one of his best performances but he still contributed to a goal. 6”.
TIF Thoughts on Son’s performance…
The 30-year-old had chances to score in this game, but a soft shot stopped by Jose Sa and his post hit were his best chances to score, both of which he should have done better with.
He lost possession a disappointing 16 times, as well as losing six duels in what was a rather quiet display from him.
Luckily for the South Korean international there is still a long time left in the season for him to get back to his best form, and with their next three games coming against Nottingham Forest, West Ham United and Fulham, it gives the winger a great chance to get his name on the scoresheet and pick up his form.
Was Son poor against Wolves?
