Son Heung-min drops Tottenham future hint after reaching new goal landmark

Son Heung-min believes he has a “few more years” left in him as he aims to climb even higher up the Tottenham goalscoring ranks.

The South Korean star has found his feet again in front of goal for Spurs in recent weeks with three goals and one assist in his past five Premier League games to make it 12 goals and four assists for the season so far. His low early strike on Saturday in the 3-2 defeat to Bournemouth was also a milestone moment as it took Son to 143 goals for the club.

That means that the 30-year-old has moved level with Jermain Defoe in joint sixth in the club’s all-time top goalscorer rankings.

When asked just how many more goals he can score for the club – with the double-winning legend Cliff Jones next on the list in fifth with 159 goals – Son made it clear that he intends to score more goals for Spurs in the years to come.

“I think I’ve got a few more years to play yet, so I will try to keep scoring more goals. I want to go a little bit higher (in the top scorers list), so I will do my best,” he said. “It’s a big honour to have been playing for a few years now at this club.

“Obviously I’m not really focused to be tied with this goalscoring record, obviously I just want to help the team, but it’s a big honour to be compared with Jermain Defoe, who is a Spurs legend and scored so many goals for Spurs. So I think to tie this goal tally makes me hugely proud.”

The previous week Son reached another landmark in hitting 100 Premier League goals with his stunning curling strike against Brighton. That also made him the first Asian to enter the 100 club in the competition.
