Tottenham boss Antonio Conte has said his forward, Heung-min Son is the kind of man he could allow to marry his daughter.
Son, who was below his best in Tottenham’s 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest on Sunday, was furious after he was substituted in the second half.
The South Korean has not been at his best this season and is a shadow of the player that claimed the Premier League Golden Boot last season.
But Conte has no doubts about the South Korean’s talent or his personality and will continue to back him.
“I understand Sonny is a really sensible player,” Conte told reporters.
“He’s really sensible and a top man, a really good guy. If I am to make an example, if I have to find a husband for my daughter I’d like it to be a person like him.
“In this moment maybe he’s suffering a lot that he’s not scoring…We trust him and the team-mates.
“For me, Sonny will always be a nut in my team, in my ambition of football.”
