That’s complete and utter hogwash. Yes, Tottenham have serious issues within the higher reaches of the club, but Sonny is a natural leader whose desire to win should never be questioned. If things continually spiral out of control at Tottenham, one wonders whether Son’s current conviction to remain in north London will remain steadfast and unwavering.
If Spurs’ ambition continually falls short of the South Korean’s, the likelihood of his departure increases with every passing season.
Sonny is currently worth about £70 million on the open market. He’s 28 years old and is in the midst of his prime. Sonny has another two seasons before he reaches a watershed moment in his career. Like most of his Tottenham teammates, Son has never won a team trophy at club level. If he doesn’t win one in the next season or two, you can almost guarantee his departure.
If Kane leaves, the itch for Sonny to follow suit will invariably compound, leading him to question his long-term plans. But for now it looks like Sonny is staying at Tottenham, news that will offer a semblance of hope for supporters.
