For Tottenham fans to truly warm to someone at their club, going public with comments from Heung-Min Son bigging that person up is a surefire way to win over plenty of fans, and it looks like that’s been done with Jose Mourinho, as Son has come out with some quotes on the new manager.
#thfc forward Heung-Min Son on José Mourinho: "He is very kind. He is smiling, making jokes. I like it. I think the results changed a lot, the positive vibe. Everyone is positive before games. The gaffer is doing a great job and we are really happy with him." [Daily Star] pic.twitter.com/pbWH2n2DVs

The South Korean winger has been quoted in FourFourTwo magazine talking about his new manager, and whilst he was also quick to show his sadness for the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino, the lethal wide-man also talks about the ‘positive vibes’ that have been brought by Mourinho.
So far this season, the Korean winger has grabbed himself four goals and six assists in the Premier League this season (Premierleague.com) and that assist tally has him 2nd behind just Kevin De Bruyne in the race for the Playmaker of the Year award, and should Mourinho keep his levels up there’s no reason why he can’t push De Bruyne all the way.
Is Heung-Min Son our best player?
