Jermaine Jenas praises Spurs player who is too modest to admit his quality

Heung-min Son claimed that he was lucky to score his stunning curling effort against Leicester City yesterday, however a former Spurs player has questioned his modesty.

Jermaine Jenas, who was once a feature in the Tottenham Hotspur midfield can now be found working as a pundit on BT Sport and was in attendance at the King Power Stadium for last night’s 2-0 victory.

Jenas believes that there was no luck involved in Son’s strike that saw him cut back on his left foot outside of penalty area and bend his shot beyond the helpless Kasper Schmeichel in the Foxes goal.

Such is the quality of Son, he has been directly involved in four goals in his last two league starts against Leicester City (three goals, one assist).

The South Korean is known for being a down to earth footballer and it comes across in his interviews, rather than singing his own praise. However, on this occasion, Jenas has highlighted the quality he possesses instead.

Jenas told the live BT Sport coverage as quoted by HITC: “It’s interesting to hear his interview and he associated practicing and luck in the same sentence. That’s not true at all. There’s no luck about it. I’ve seen him do it for Tottenham four or five times.

“The quality he possesses in what is his so called weaker foot. Most players wouldn’t even look at doing that. For him to do that in both feet is scary.”
