The former Manchester City player Richards, now a Sky Sports commentator, said on the show that Sun Xingmin's recent state is too good, and the Tottenham striker can be compared with De Bruyne and Mane.
Richards said: "Sun Xingmin's state is absolutely incredible. When I play under Bruce, he will clearly point out how he wants me to play and how to defend against players like Sun Xingmin. Maybe someone wants to stare at him, but when When he is in such a good state, you can do nothing. He can always find an open position and always get behind his opponent."
"What I like most about him is his calmness in front of the goal. How many chances did you see him miss? Rarely, he is definitely the backbone of Tottenham. There are a lot of people talking about Mane and De Bruyne, that’s right. Yes, but for me, Sun Xingmin can be compared with them. It is an honor for Tottenham to own him because he is a rare player."
