The South-Korean, who was named the Asian player of the year this week for a record third time, is one of the best players in the Premier League and despite United beating the Lillywhites in midweek, Son was pretty impressive in his role once again.
And as reported by the Manchester Evening News, Schmeichel said during his punditry duty with Amazon Prime Sport, “I would love to see him [at Old Trafford]. Yeah, I know [there’s quite a few players I would have from Spurs]. He is an incredible player. It really is difficult to understand how good he is.”
United will definitely be in the market for a striker in January, a search which might go on till next summer.
However, Schmeichel chose to look at the brighter side with the likes of the youngsters like Scott McTominay, Mason Greenwood and ever maturing Marcus Rashford getting more chances to prove themselves.
He said, “Scott McTominay, him being back today was key because he really gives the stability in midfield. We have to remember, he is a young player, we as Man United fans, he is someone that needs to be managed and nurtured a little bit.”
Finally, speaking about Rashford and Greenwood, Schmeichel concluded, “Then, of course, the inclusion of Greenwood today, he didn’t have too many chances, he didn’t score but I think he’s taking part in the game and giving space to Rashford, which was very important and I thought he played a really good game. Rashford, I can’t remember seeing him as good as he was today.”
