Alli and Rose hail Son's contribution


Dele Alli and Danny Rose have paid tribute to Heung-Min Son after he scored a brace to help Tottenham come from a goal down to beat Bournemouth 4-1 on Sunday.

Son has been in impressive form for Tottenham of late, scoring seven goals in four games, to take his total to 18 for the season in all competitions.

He needs just three more to match the number of goals he scored last season and his team-mates have wasted little time in heaping praise on the South Korean.

“Sonny is an unbelievable player and it’s a joy to play in this team with so many quality players. It’s nice to see him scoring and he plays such a huge part in the team," Alli told the club's official website. “He’s an amazing player and a big part of this team.”

Rose added: “Sonny is very under-rated. Goals aside, people don’t get to see his attitude on a day-to-day basis. He’s always bubbly whether or not he plays and he deserves all the plaudits.

“He’s now closing in on 20 goals again in all competitions and that’s something to be delighted with – we’re all delighted for him and long may it continue!”
