Glenn Hoddle says one Tottenham player was absolutely ‘excellent’ tonight


Glenn Hoddle has said on BT Sport/ESPN (10:08pm, November 4, 2021) that Son Heung-min was excellent for Tottenham Hotspur against Vitesse tonight.

The Spurs legend has said that Son was excellent at the start of the match at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Former Spurs striker Peter Crouch also made a similar observation about the South Korea international forward during the half-time analysis.

Hoddle said on BT Sport/ESPN (10:08pm, November 4, 2021): “Son was excellent at the start of the game.”

Crouch said on BT Sport/ESPN (8:53pm, November 4, 2021): “Son looked so sharp.”

Son has developed into a big player for Spurs, and he showed that again tonight.

Remember, it was Antonio Conte’s first game as the new Tottenham manager.

Yes, the 29-year-old could have done better in the second half, but he was superb in the first 45 minutes of the Europa Conference League game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

It was Son who opened the scoring for Spurs in the 14th minute.

Son went close to scoring early on and was probably unlucky not to see his effort go in.

The South Korean worked hard, just as he always does, and looked energetic.

Tottenham won the Europa Conference League Group G game 3-2.

Spurs had Cristian Romero sent off, while Vitesse ended the game with nine men on the pitch.
