Kane the “best player in the world” according to Son

Harry Kane is the best player in the world, according to Tottenham team-mate Heung-Min Son.

Kane is expected to return to training in April ahead of England’s World Cup campaign in Russia this summer after picking up an ankle injury during Tottenham’s 4-1 win over Bournemouth earlier this month,

Son, who has scored twice in Kane’s absence, believes he will be sorely missed by club and country, but has called on Spurs to adapt to life without their leading scorer.

“Harry Kane is, of course, a very important player for England because he’s the best player in the world,” Son told Sky Sports News.

“This is football, so sometimes you get injuries, but as Tottenham we need to play without Harry. It’s very sad but the other players have to be ready. I’m not like Harry, I’m just trying to practice every day, but it’s a good opportunity to make something happen.

“I’ve proved a lot of things while at Tottenham in two and a half years, I’ve enjoyed it a lot and I’m really happy to be there because they work hard and this is what I want.”

Son is understood to be set for talks with Tottenham over a new deal,but the forward remained tight-lipped when asked about his future in north London.

“I’ve played nearly three years at Tottenham,” he added. “I’ve proved a lot of things and I’m just enjoying taking it day-by-day.”
