Heung-min Son has now revealed he would like to spend a decade at Tottenham Hotspur after signing a new contract this summer.
The South Korean winger signed a new deal with Spurs last month, committing his future until 2025, taking him up to the age of 34.
Son signed for Tottenham from Bayer Leverkusen back in 2015, meaning a stay until 2025 would mark a decade in North London for the attacker.
When asked whether he would like to reach that decade mark, Son confirmed that he would indeed like to stay with the N17 club for that long. He even added that he could be at Tottenham beyond that.
However, the Spurs goalscorer was keen to hammer home that his mentality and focus was on improving each day and each season, rather than earning a testimonial at Tottenham.
Son said (Sky Sports): “Yes [would like to spend a decade at Spurs], if I can stay for another four years and football is never promised, so let’s see. That’s why I signed because I don’t want to move again somewhere else.
“I could be here for ten years or more than ten years, you never know what’s going to happen in the future, but I try to be focused every day, I try to improve every day and every single season. I think that the mindset is more important than the testimonial after 10 years.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
With players like Son, it is often about how well they can stay fit and retain their pace. A lot of his game revolves around that raw, explosive pace, so getting older can result in a slip. However, you would never think that he was one of the older players in the squad at the moment.
