Son Heung Min shocked the Premier League: Going straight to the first title? (Part 2)

Perhaps what makes coaches, including Thorsten Fink, Roger Schmidt or Samy Hyypia in Germany, love Son is because of his willingness to respond to the requests of his superiors.

To Son, his father’s word was the law and he was therefore not married yet because he did not want him to be dominated by family life. Being obedient and not allowing ego to dominate action is what makes Son always trusted.

It is impossible not to mention the ideal teammates next to the Korean superstar. Harry Kane with the ability to step back as a wall is an impossible partner for Son, they have together made 24 Premier League goals to become the best attacking pair in the league since the start of the 2015/16 season. Kane actually works well with almost everyone who plays, including Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen.

Nobody can predict the achievements that Son Heung Min has achieved at Tottenham. Son is now one of the best winger in the world and a Golden Ball candidate in 2019. He became the number 1 Asian striker in both Premier League and Champions League history, winning runner-up of the Champions League season 2018/19.

Son has been voted Premier League Player of the Month twice, entered the Premier League fan-voted standout team twice, was awarded the league’s best goal of the month award, and is scored the best goal of the 2019/20 Premier League season.

In the Tottenham shirt, Son is currently ranked 17th in the list of the greatest goalscorer in club history, and is the number 4 striker in the European Cup of Spurs. He won the club’s Player of the Season award for two consecutive seasons, and his goal against Burnley last season was named Tottenham’s best goal of the decade.

Since Tottenham began awarding the Player of the Season award in 1987, Robbie Keane has won the most number of awards on three occasions. Son Heung Min with 2 consecutive seasons receiving the award is only 1 time behind Keane, while many times more than Teddy Sheringham, Jurgen Klinsmann or Chris Waddle. Those legends have all been nominated for Tottenham’s House of Fame, so Son is almost certain to come one day to be honored.
