Sonny aiming high

Heung-Min Son has started pre-season with a bang - but he wants more.
The South Korean star kicked-off our pre-season schedule with a quickfire double in Saturday’s 3-0 win against Ipswich Town. Sonny struck swiftly after Ryan Sessegnon had opened the scoring on six minutes and his second, a measured dink over the goalkeeper, had us all recalling his equaliser in the north London derby win over Arsenal towards the end of last season.
Typically of all goalscorers, it was the one that got away that was on Sonny’s mind afterwards, as he popped Gedson’s cross over from close range just before half-time.
“I’m a bit angry because I missed another couple of chances,” said Sonny, who became only the fourth Spur in Premier League history to score 10-plus goals and claim 10-plus assists in the same season last term.
“This is what I have to look for this season, to be sharp and to be better than last season," he continued. "I’ve had 10 years of pre-season in Europe now and it’s always so good to score goals, especially in the first game, you want to start with confidence.
“We’ve trained for a week and the first game is always so important. We scored three goals in the first half, and it could have been more. We created many chances and maybe we deserved more goals, but we missed some chances, missed some final passes, but it’s the first game and we know we can do better.”
