Crouch singles out Tottenham Hotspur star Son for praise

Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min received plenty of plaudits for his performance against Juventus on Wednesday night.

The South Korean international scored in the first half of Spurs’ Champions League last-16 second leg at Wembley.

At that point, the North London outfit were 3-2 on aggregate and Mauricio Pochettino’s side were dominating the game.

After the half-time break, though, a formation change to 4-4-2 by Juventus turned the clash in their favour, and goals from Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala sent the Italian club through to the quarter-finals.

Despite Tottenham’s valiant effort, some players did not escape criticism from fans on Twitter.

One man, though, who was widely praised was Son, who has scored 16 goals and registered four assists in 42 appearances in all competitions.

Stoke City striker Peter Crouch, who played for Spurs across two spells, took to Twitter to give his verdict on the forward.

Harry Kane is the number one forward at Tottenham, but Son’s performances have earned him a big following within the club’s fanbase.
