Tottenham star Heung-min Son has this weekend been speaking about teammate Dejan Kulusevski.
The South Korean, alongside Harry Kane and Kulusevski, have struck up a great partnership in Tottenham’s attack over the last couple of months, overseeing huge results such as a 5-0 win over Everton, a 5-1 win over Newcastle and a 4-0 win over Aston Villa.
And now, in a recent interview, Son has opened up on how impressed he was with Kulusevski when he first started training at Spurs, adding that the Swede has adapted to the Premier League ‘really well’:
“He has something,” Son said. “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.”
Kulusevski’s Tottenham stint
Dejan Kulusevski joined Tottenham on loan from Juventus in the January transfer window.
The Swede has since hit the ground running in England. In just his second start for the club, he provided one goal and one assist as Spurs earned a huge 3-2 win over Premier League champions Manchester City.
And the 21-year-old has scored a further two goals and provided five more assists in his subsequent league outings for the Lilywhites.
