Jose Mourinho believes versatile Asian superstar has potentials to make it at Liverpool

The recent remarks of Jose Mourinho about Son Heung-Min and his potential to excel at Liverpool have stirred up some chatter.

As a former boss at Tottenham Hotspur, Mourinho got a firsthand look at Son’s skills, and his comments shed light on why the South Korean forward could (have) thrive at Anfield.

Son‘s recent performance at Anfield, where he bagged a goal in a 4-2 loss against Liverpool, really hammered home his impact on the pitch. Even Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool’s outgoing gaffer, has voiced his admiration for Son, saying he wouldn’t have minded signing him.

Mourinho’s take on Son’s versatility shows why he could fit right in with Liverpool’s style of play. Son’s got the modern mobility that’s vital for attacking players, able to operate centrally or drift wide to cut in with precision.

His ability to cause havoc on the wing with top-class dribbling and clinical finishing surely fits perfectly with Liverpool’s fast-paced, counter-attacking approach.

Here is what Mourinho had to say via ECHO:

“I look at Son as one of the best players in the world. Maybe Tottenham supporters aren’t going to be happy with what I’m going to say, it’s not disrespectful.

“He could win titles, he could play for the best teams. He could be playing in England for Man City, for Liverpool, for Chelsea. It could be abroad playing for one of the top teams.

“He has that modern mobility of the attacking players. He can play through the middle, from the sides, wide to coming inside.”

Cutting in from the left wing, Son has consistently troubled opposing defences with his sharp runs and goal-scoring threat. His knack for finding the back of the net has certainly made life miserable for defenders, and his style of play mirrors that of Liverpool’s (prime) attacking trio, known for their fluid movement and lethal finishing.

While Mourinho’s comments might spark rumours about Son moving to Liverpool, the 31-year-old remains a key figure for Tottenham under boss Ange Postecoglou.

As the skipper, Son’s leadership on and off the pitch is invaluable, and his impressive goal-scoring record this season underscores his importance to Spurs’ ambitions.

Son’s mix of skill, speed, and tactical nous makes him a hot property for top clubs both at home and abroad. While Liverpool might seem like an attractive option for Son, his commitment to Tottenham and his captaincy role suggest that any potential transfer would face stiff resistance from the North London club. Daniel Levy is a shrewd operator.

To sum it up, Mourinho’s backing of Son for Liverpool shows just how top-notch the lad is. Son’s style, with the cutting in from the left and causing chaos with his dribbling and goals, surely fits like a glove with Liverpool’s game plan. But let’s not forget, Son’s Tottenham through and through.
