Son’s dad claims star "must work harder" and urges him to sign for a "top club"

Son Heung-min's dad has surprisingly refused to say that his son is "world class" and has urged him to move to a "top club".

The South Korean was key to Tottenham's resurgence under Antonio Conte last season bagging 23 goals to help his side to a Champions League berth. Son's goals were enough to see him finish as the league's joint-top goalscorer alongside Mohamed Salah.

However, his latest season hasn't been enough to impress his dad: Son Woong-jung. He has insisted that Son doesn't work hard enough and he could be at least "10% better" – he also suggested Son should leave North London for a better side.

Speaking to CGTN News, he said: "He must work harder and make more progress.

"If he is satisfied with what he has achieved now, crisis is on the way. He must always try to do better to stay in the best form, don’t you think? Instead of being happy to stay where he is, I always want him to be 10 per cent better.

He added: "He must be able to play a solid role in one of the world's top clubs. That's when he will become a world-class player."

Son had been briefly linked with a switch to Liverpool, but after the Reds look set to land Benfica's Darwin Nunez, that deal could now be off the cards.

He concluded: "He scored a lot of goals this year, but it doesn't mean he will do the same next year. Only those who stay ready can survive the difficulties. He must face everything with a cautious mind and can't afford to be too proud."
