Sardar Azmoun Remains in Korean Son Heung-min’s Shadow: Report

(IranSportsPress.com-Tasnim)- Tottenham Hotspur’s Korean winger Son Heung-min is the best player in all of Asia, foxsportsasia.com wrote.

There are plenty of players, especially from Japan, showing good performances in the Bundesliga. Shinji Kagawa recently became the highest scoring Japanese player in the Bundesliga’s history then you have talents such as Genki Haraguchi in Berlin and Yuya Osako. Then you have stars such as Iran’s Sardar Azmoun at Rubin Kazan.

Azmoun should be showing his undoubted skills on a bigger stage. This is why he doesn’t make the headlines that Son makes. The same with Omar Abdulraham. The United Arab Emirates star has been regarded by many as the most talented player in Asia and it is hard to argue with a player as silky as the Al Ain man.

It may not be fair but the plaudits will go to Son more than the other two talents (Azmoun and Abdulraham). The South Korean may not have the natural easy ability of Abdulrahman but he is playing at a higher level week in and week out.

Azmoun has already taken the hardest step. Playing in Russia is a tough and effective football education for a young Asian talent but it is not a place to stay to long after graduation. The striker, still just 22, has demonstrated that he can adapt to the highest level with his appearances in European club competitions. Time is on his side but a big move needs to come soon.
