Former Manchester City and England defender Danny Mills has raved about Tottenham Hotspur attacker Son Heung-min, per Football Insider.
The South Korea international played a major role in Spurs’ 2-2 draw with Arsenal at the weekend, providing a constant threat on the break with his pace and trickery.
He won the penalty from which Harry Kane scored his side’s second goal but Mills believes that the 27-year-old, who netted 20 goals in all competitions last season, remains “underrated”.
He said: “He’s a fabulous player, I think he’s massively underrated.
“His quality, his ability, his discipline and his work rate are absolutely exceptional, he very rarely lets you down in any way, shape or form.
“Yes, all players miss chances and have off moments but overall, the way that he plays – his energy and enthusiasm – his effort for the team is incredible.”
Spurs’ attack would not be the same without Son.
A brilliantly multi-faceted player, the attacker is capable of scoring all types of goals, as well as taking on players, beating them, while also winning it back on a regular basis.
He adds pace and dynamism on the left flank and is also capable of playing through the middle, particularly if Kane is absent.

Mills is right to draw attention to the fact that he is not seen as one of the elite talents in the Premier League.
The fact is though; he should be.
