Ex-Spurs striker Keane: If Son played for Barcelona or Real Madrid...

Former Tottenham star Robbie Keane has declared Heung-min Son among the best players ever seen in the Premier League.

The Irishman, who made over 300 appearances for the north London club across two spells, suggested that if Son played for Real Madrid or Barcelona he'd be talked about in the 'top bracket'.

"For me, honestly, I think he is one of the best players we have ever seen in the Premier League. I don't think he gets the respect that he should get," Keane said ahead of Tottenham's clash with Arsenal on Thursday night.

"I never hear people speaking about him like the big teams when they are being mentioned, like the Real Madrid's and the Barcelona's of this world.

"Some of the goals that he scores, Harry [Kane] is making him a better player. For me, he is one of the best and is a joy to watch."
