Former Tottenham Hotspur defender Kevin Wimmer has issued two-word reaction to Heung-min Son’s news from earlier today.
Spurs confirmed this morning that the South Korean had signed a new long-term contract with the North Londoners until 2025.
Wimmer and Son were known for their close friendship during their time together at Spurs having both arrived at the club from Germany in the same summer.
The central defender left Spurs to join Stoke City for £18million in 2017, having only started four Premier League matches in the previous season (BBC) and had his contract with the Potters terminated earlier this year so he could join Austrian outfit Rapid Vienna.
Son took to Instagram to express his delight after committing his future to Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, with Wimmer replying with ‘best player’.

Wimmer wasn’t the only past or present Spurs player to congratulate Son, with Kyle Walker-Peters, Robbie Keane, Michel Vorm, Sergio Reguilon, Giovani Lo Celso, Carlos Vinicius and Jermaine Jenas among those who commented.

While Son’s career has gone on from strength to strength, it was sad to see Wimmer having struggled following his move to Stoke City. Admittedly he was a bit-part player at Spurs, he showed he was more than capable of playing for a top-flight side when asked to cover the likes of Jan Vertonghen.
