Son backs Spurs to perform in Kane’s absence

Tottenham forward Heung-Min Son has insisted he feels no extra pressure with the injury to star striker Harry Kane, and backs Brazilian Lucas Moura to help the team get goals in his absence.

Son, 26, has scored 12 league goals this season in just 19 starts, including two goals in Tottenham’s first three matches at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

He is likely to be required to fill in for Kane who could be out of rot remainder of the season with ankle ligament problems suffered in Tuesday’s 1-0 Champions League victory over Manchester City.

But the South Korean is not about to buckle under the pressure, as he told the Telegraph:

“No. I just enjoy the football. Everyone, not just me, should enjoy the game and scoring and winning. We should not put pressure on ourselves about these situations… Harry’s a big miss for us, but we have a big squad”

He also backed weekend hat trick hero Lucas Moura to play a key role in the last games of the season as Spurs fight for a top 4 finish:

“Lucas showed with three goals today. Everyone is ready for this race and every single game.”

Spurs prepare now for Wednesday’s Champions League quarter final second leg with City at the Etihad Stadium.
