Ghana coach Otto Addo has praised Son Heung-min, who his side will face in the World Cup


Ghana coach Otto Addo is preparing for Son Heung-min reunion in his side’s crunch clash with South Korea this week after coaching the star during his youth career in Germany

Ghana coach Otto Addo has been impressed with Son Heung-min ever since he coached the South Korea forward at youth level.

The two will be reunited on Monday when Ghana meet South Korea at Education City Stadium.

Addo was working for German club Hamburg when he first encountered Son, who he recommended for the first team.

‘He’s very, very disciplined,’ he said. ‘This is what I hoped for, and I expected it.’

Son went onto make 73 appearances for Hamburg, scoring 20 goals before moving to Bayern Leverkusen.

He spent two years there before a big-money move to Tottenham in the Premier League, where he has become a world star.

He’s nearing 150 goals in a Spurs shirt but will be fully focused on helping his side move one step closer to World Cup knockout qualification on Monday.

A win would go a huge way to doing that, but anything less and they could find themselves in trouble with just one game remaining.

The forward played for Hamburg for two years before moving to Bayern Leverkusen and eventually Tottenham
