Sonny puts Harry top of the spots!
05 December 2016|Tottenham Hotspur
Heung-Min Son says he’d back Harry Kane over any other player in the Premier League to hit the target from the penalty spot.
Hit-man Harry tucked away his fourth penalty in five games to get us up and running against Swansea City at White Hart Lane on Saturday before we pulled away to register an emphatic 5-0 win.
It was our sixth spot kick in our last eight matches, Vincent Janssen having taken responsibility for the first two against Liverpool in the EFL Cup and Leicester City in the absence of Harry, all of which have been successfully converted.
With our England international striker now firmly back among the goals, Sonny, who was also on the scoresheet in spectacular style against the Swans, says he’s always relaxed whenever Harry steps up to shoot from 12 yards.
“It was the same against West Ham in the last home game – I thought for sure he would score. I’m very confident whenever he shoots from a penalty,” said the South Korean international.
“I think that he’s the safest Premier League player to take a penalty. I didn’t see him missing and I’m very comfortable whenever I watch him shoot like that.
“I’m very happy for him as well because he had a long time out injured, he’s come back, everyone has helped him and he’s scoring a lot for the team so I’m really happy about that.”
