Ghana coach Addo happy for former protégé Son and Spurs success

Ghana coach Otto Addo is delighted for former protégé Heung-min Son and his success with Tottenham.

Ahead of Ghana's World Cup clash with South Korea, Otto recalled working with Son as a youth teamer.

He said, "I had the pleasure of having him on my team when I was a U19 coach at Hamburg.

"First of all, he is a fantastic character, a hard-working player. I really like his character. He is very disciplined and has become so good because he worked so hard for it.

"I always wish him all the best, except tomorrow (Monday), I'm glad he's healthy again and can play.

"We will try to stop him together, always as a team. It's always about closing holes, running a lot and making spaces small, and we do that as a team."
