Just like that parade has changed. Pochettino believes that new signing Heung-min Son can be Tottenham’s new hero.
The South Korea international scored twice, as Tottenham came from behind to seal a 3-1 win over Qarabag on Thursday in the Europa league clash.
Son was also the lone scorer in Tottenham’s win over Crystal Palace, as Spurs made it five matches without loss in all competitions.
“[Can Son be] Another hero? Yes, why not!” Pochettino told reporters.
“Against Qarabag he scored twice and now he scored the winning goal. The energy he showed was amazing and because of that I think our supporters are very happy with him.
“Son is a player that we followed for a long time. He can play in lots of different positions in attack.
“At all clubs, when you sign a player the expectation is big, and I’m happy because he’s scored twice on Thursday and again today.
“We wanted to sign him because it’s a profile that we like. He shows a lot of energy and presses high with a high tempo, and this is one of the skills he has.”
The Argentinian also revealed that Son endeared himself to his new colleagues by sharing cuisine from his native South Korea with them.
“You can see he’s a very friendly boy and after one week with the team he brought very good Korean food to the training ground. It shows he’s a very friendly, very humble person,” Pochettino added.
“It was very good. It’s between Chinese and Japanese. I had a lot, a big dish.”
