In a recent interview with Stadium Astro, Heung-Min Son had nothing but praise for his new teammate Dejan Kulusevski.
The Swede has adapted well to life in the Premier League, having contributed three goals and six assists across his first 13 matches in England (InfoGol).
Whilst many young players often struggle to adapt to the pace and physicality of the English game, Kulusevksi has thrived on the right-hand side of Tottenham’s attack.
Tottenham’s attack has been a two-man show for a number of years now, with Son and Harry Kane striking up a telepathic relationship, but the club’s acquisition of Kulusevski in the January transfer window has added a third prong to the offence.
The 22-year-old has added a different dynamic to Antonio Conte’s side and fellow Spurs forward Son was quick to give his teammate the credit.
He said: “He has something. With that young age, it’s not easy to be a Juventus player.
“When he trained the first time, it’s obviously not the best feeling because when new players come, you look at it by zooming in. What he’s good at and what he’s not good at. I was really impressed because it was a really good session from him in training.
“In the game, I know how tough the Premier League is and I suffer so much. I feel like I am still suffering because it’s the toughest league in the world.
“But Kulu had adapted really well after three months. Don’t forget, he has only been in the Premier League for three months. He’s really enjoying it and playing with freedom.”

Kulu’s fine form has been key in propelling Spurs back into the race for the top four and it’s clear that he is a player with tremendous potential.
It’s great to hear that a player of Son’s standard is so impressed with how Dejan’s commitment and willingness to knuckle down and improve his game.
If he keeps his feet grounded and listens to Conte, he will be a huge player for the Lilywhites for many seasons going forward.
