‘I feel like my heart is bouncing’ – Heung-min Son raves about Ange Postecoglou

Son Heung-min has insisted the best of Tottenham is still yet to come this season and spoke in glowing terms about the impact Ange Postecoglou has had at the club.

Postecoglou has received plenty of praise for his style of football and for his ability to bring the best out of some players at the club but the Australian’s biggest strength is undoubtedly his communication skills.

Not only have his messages to the media helped win over the Spurs fans but several Tottenham players, including the likes of James Maddison (The Sun) and Dejan Kulusevski (Fabrizio Romano), have admitted that his team talks are quite riveting.

Son has now also spoken about Postecoglou’s addresses to the squad, admitting that he is usually hanging by every word that comes out of the Australian mouth.

The Tottenham captain told Men in Blazers: “It’s crazy actually the way he (Ange) speaks… the way he talks is fantastic as a human being, as a coach, it’s nothing more than that.

“It’s amazing. I’m 31 years old, I learned many things before and I felt as a human I felt that I had enough but then since he arrived I feel like ‘wow! I’m still a child’.

“The way he speaks, I feel like my heart is bouncing. I just want to go out and play for him and play for the club. It feels like he’s just part of my family.”

There is still more to come from Spurs, says Sonny

Some might be of the opinion that Postecoglou’s honeymoon period at Tottenham is now over and that the Lilywhites’ bubble has burst following their impressive start to the season.

However, Son has insisted that we have not seen the best of the current Spurs side yet, remarking that they want to be a ‘special team’.

The 31-year-old added: “I think you still haven’t seen our best. We don’t want to be the best, we want to be special. To be special you have to work hard and be a competitor.

 “You can always dream for yourself, but we are living in the present, looking day by day, game by game and then we’ll see where we are at the end of the season.

“I don’t like to talk about the past or the future. There are so many better teams in the Premier League, we have to work harder than them.”

Spurs Web Opinion

It is quite noticeable that despite setting their aims really high, neither Postecoglou nor any of the players are spelling out the club’s ambitions for the season.

That seems like a deliberate ploy as it ensures that they do not put any pressure on themselves while also not putting a limit on what they can achieve.
