Pundit Minto claims that Tottenham Hotspur have a player who’s as important as Heung Min Son

Pundit Scott Minto has shared a huge praise for one Tottenham Hotspur defender. It was for a very considerable time that Tottenham were said to be a one man team. As Pep Guardiola said once upon a time, Spurs were, for quite a while, seen as the “Harry Kane team”.

However, after the departure of Kane, Tottenham have still managed themselves to be disciplined in all aspects. Indeed, it doesn’t take a football genius to tell you that Heung-Min Son and James Maddison are two of Spurs’ most important players. Speaking on Premier League All Access Podcast, Scott Minto says that another Tottenham star can also fit in that bracket. He said,

“In the summer they need to recruit a couple more quick centre-halves, He’s almost as important as a Son or as a Maddison if Spurs are to be successful. It’s all well and good being exciting going forwards, but you can’t concede one or two a game, and they concede a lot of chances Spurs, you have to say.”

The Dutchman is not only important for his playing style but also his ability on the pitch. Micky’s speed allows Postecoglou to play a dangerous high-line and rely on him during the counters from opposition. His speed in terms of recovery runs is so crucial to Ange Postecoglou’s style of play. Moreover, when he’s not in the team, Spurs just don’t click in the same way. With just 22-years of age, the man is justifying his £35m price. He has the potential to be a huge name. If he continues to grow like this, he can become one of the best of his generation peers in the upcoming years.
