Darren Bent names Premier League star who could start in the Liverpool line-up ahead of Sadio Mane
Former Premier League forward Darren Bent believes that Spurs attacker Heung-Min Son could walk into the Liverpool side, ahead of Sadio Mane.
Darren Bent has showered praise on the South Korean star for his incredible ability to make a difference up front.
Bent further suggested that Son could walk into any team right now, including the Reds and Manchester City.
On being asked whether Son would start for any Premier League side, Bent told talkSPORT, as quoted by HITC Sport:
“Yes, I think he does now. I always used to think; ‘Hmm, would he get in (at Liverpool) ahead of Mane?’ But Heung-Min Son, he steps up all the time.
“He scores goals, creates goals, can finish with either foot. On that left-hand side, I think he would get into any team now. City as well.”
Bent has heaped praise on the former Bayer Leverkusen star for his ‘goal threat’ and intelligence ‘with his movement’.He added:
“He just carries such a goal threat, he’s intelligent with his movement, he consistently scores goals every season as well. I think you’d put him in there (at Liverpool and Man City).”
