Son 'proud' of Tottenham teammate Dele Alli: He's had a tough time

Tottenham star Son Heung-min is delighted with his teammate Dele Alli.

The Englishman has struggled in recent months under Jose Mourinho, and even wanted to leave in the January transfer window.

However, his form has improved, and he is now back in contention for starting matches.

"I am always happy to play with any players. It is happiness to go out to the pitch and play football," Son told Goal after Tottenham's 4-0 win over Burnley.

"I've been with Dele for a long time, and recently he has had a tough time, but I'm proud of his performance.

"I get along with [Gareth] Bale and it is nice to have a good performance with him.

"Today every player tried to do their best and worked hard, therefore the players played happily."
