Teddy Sheringham Exclusive: Son Close To Salah Levels

Former Tottenham striker Teddy Sheringham believes Spurs forward Heung-min Son “isn’t far away” from the level of Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah. The South Korean has hit 22 goals in 43 appearances across all competitions this season, while Salah has managed 30 in 49 games. Son’s Premier League haul of 21 strikes also has him hot on the heels of Salah’s 22 in the Golden Boot race – and Sheringham does not think there is much to separate the pair.


Son Close To Salah

Speaking exclusively to Genting, he said: “Son isn’t far away from Mo Salah at all, I don’t think there’s an awful amount between the two. 

“I think Son has been up there with the best players in the season for any club. 

“I think he’ll probably win the Tottenham Player of the Year and if you finish above Harry Kane then you’ve got to be some player. 

“I really like him. There’s not a lot to choose between, he’s a similar player to Salah. 

“They work hard, they’ve got good pace about them, strength even though they don’t look [strong] and can score a goal as well. I think Son is an outstanding player.”

Conte Perfect For Spurs

With a forward like the 29-year-old at his disposal, Sheringham thinks Antonio Conte can elevate Spurs above the level of simply battling for a top-four spot.

However, he believes that they may be just short of a title-tilt next season. 

“I think Conte can take them an awful long way, I think he was the perfect manager at the time,” the ex-England striker explained.

“I don’t think he would have been the perfect manager for Manchester United, but I think he’s the perfect manager for Tottenham. 

“I think the discipline that he instils, the work rate, the 100% commitment, I just love everything about him and I just think he’s perfect for what Tottenham needed at the time – and I think he can go on and take them to bigger and better things. 

“It’ll all depend on whether or not they get in the Champions League, if he’s given money to go and spent on two to three or even four top players to make Tottenham get in the next level, then who knows how far he can take them.

“If all goes according to plan, I think Spurs should be challenging for the bracket above just top four, but perhaps not the league title, as I think Liverpool and City are much further ahead. 

“Sometimes that transitional period for football teams takes a little bit longer and as long as you’re getting better each season is what is important, then that’s perfect in my eyes, because Manchester City and Liverpool are a long way away from them at the moment.”
