Heung-min Son hails ‘really special’ Ange Postecoglou as Tottenham continue superb start

Heung-min Son has told talkSPORT he and his teammates have already learnt so much from Ange Postecoglou, both on and off the pitch.

Spurs reclaimed their place at the top of the Premier League on Monday night as they saw off Fulham 2-0, with Son and summer signing James Maddison both scoring landmark goals to seal the win.

Spurs remain unbeaten in the Premier League and Monday’s victory put Postecoglou in the history books, as he became the manager with the best ever start to a Premier League career after nine matches, having amassed 23 points so far.

When asked by talkSPORT just what kind of an impact the Australian manager has had on the club since arriving from Celtic this summer, Son, who was given the captain’s armband this season, took a moment to pause.

“Special,” he said. “Really special. The way he speaks.

“I mean, as a manager, we don’t have to talk, as he’s showing [how good he is] every single game and every single week so.”

“But as a person, he’s unbelievable.”

It’s not just the footballing side that Postecoglou is helping his players with, either.

Son continued: “I mean, I’m 31, I’m not that young compared to the rest of the guys.

“But I’m still learning so many things [from] him. Just about being a human being. It’s very important [in] life so.

“I think the players are picking it up really, really well, so I think that has had an effect on the pitch as well.

“The way he speaks, he gives us so much advice and I think the players understand it really well and to bring this advice onto the pitch.

“It’s a really special feeling.”

Postecoglou is clearly instilling a winning mentality within Spurs’ squad, with the Aussie himself telling talkSPORT there’s no reason his side can’t be title contenders.

Tottenham face London rivals Crystal Palace on Friday night as they look to extend their lead at the top of the table.
