Son Heung-min shares thoughts on relationship between him and ‘incredible’ Richarlison


The South Korean superstar has now a new team-mate in the attacking line of Tottenham Hotspur. The North London club has finished the pre-season tour, during which the club played two friendlies. The club’s newcomers enjoyed their debut minutes, including the most expensive signing – the Brazilian national Richarlison.

It was a special week for Son, as he greeted the team at his homeland. Tottenham’s popularity in this country is unbeatable. The recent surveys confirm that nearly 12 million of Koreans support the Lilywhites (of the 51 million population).

Son has hailed the Brazilian as he believes that Richarlison’s influence will be massive next season. In addition, he admitted that they have already become good friends.

“Competition is always good. You improve yourself and also your team-mates. We can rotate, or we can have a different style of football, or we can have different movements,” he explained. “Adding players like Richy is incredible. He’s a quality player so I’m really enjoying that.

“I’ve been with him only days but he’s become like a really close friend. It was fantastic to play with him. I really enjoyed it.”
