Son Heung Min is the best finishing striker in Europe

Son Heung Min is Europe’s best finishers, while the two elders Ronaldo and Messi may be ashamed to review their own results.

Son Heung Min is having a wonderful start to the season with Tottenham in the Premier League. The Korean striker has 11 goals and 4 assists in the 2020/21 Premier League after only 14 appearances. Currently, Tottenham’s No. 7 is ranked second in the list of “Top Scorer” with 2 goals less than Liverpool’s leader Mo Salah (13 goals).

One point worth noting is that Mourinho’s Tottenham is not an aggressive team. Therefore, Son Heung Min has only released 25 finishes after 14 matches, equivalent to an average of less than 2 times / game. Therefore, the Korean striker’s 11-goal record is even more valuable.

According to statistics, Son Heung Min is the player capable of converting the number of shots into the best goals in Europe’s top 5 leagues (for players with 9 or more goals) with the ratio 44% (25 shots, 11 goals).

To make it clearer, let’s also look at Mo Salah’s goal conversion rate. The Egyptian striker launched 47 shots, but only scored 13 goals, equivalent to 27.66%, which means that the performance is far behind Son Heung Min.

Or like Jamie Vardy, a player with the same number of goals as Son Heung Min, has a 31.4% rate, the fourth best in Europe’s top five leagues.

Two players with records close to Son Heung Min are Lewandowski (Bayern Munich) and Romelu Lukaku (Inter Milan). Both have 34% conversion rates of shots into goals, still less than the Korean striker about 10%. Young talent Erling Haaland (Dortmund) is closely behind with a 33% record.

Two contemporary football superstars, Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus) and Leo Messi (Barcelona), both have quite bad achievements. The Portuguese superstar has 51 shots in just 10 games and has 12 goals, equivalent to a conversion rate of 23.5%.

The Barcelona captain did not even have 9 goals to be considered in this list. Currently, Messi has only 7 goals in La Liga after 85 finishes, which means the conversion rate is only 8.23%. This explains why Barcelona is struggling in La Liga when the team’s brightest star is forgetting to score.

Coming back to Son Heung Min, this ratio shows that the Korean striker is in extremely high scoring form. Not only that, Tottenham’s No. 7 also likes to score goals against big teams. MU, Man City, Liverpool or Arsenal are all victims of Son Heung Min this season. If you continue to promote, the Korean striker will soon turn to a new page of his career.

Son Heung Min received the same salary as Kane, stayed at Tottenham until 34 years old?

Tottenham made no secret of its intention to turn Son Heung Min into the team’s monument with a long-term contract with a huge salary.

A source from Fabrizio Romano, a writer of European football, confirmed that the contract renewal negotiations between Tottenham and Son Heung Min are going smoothly. Although the old contract is still valid until 2023, “Rooster” still wants to ensure his future with the Korean striker.

In addition, the new contract can help Son Heung Min stick with Tottenham for another 5-6 years, when he was 34 years old. Obviously, “Rooster” does not conceal the intention of turning the Korean striker into a monument of the team.

“There are many positive signals about the contract renewal process. Both sides almost reached an agreement, the new contract can last 5-6 years. Everyone is looking forward to this, Son is also very happy at Tottenham. Everything will be done in a few weeks”, said Fabrizio Romano.

Son Heung Min joined Tottenham in 2015, scoring 98 goals / 247 matches in all competitions. In the 2020/21 season, the Korean striker continued to play well when he contributed 10 goals in the Premier League. The 28-year-old superstar merged with Harry Kane into the best “close parallel” in the history of the tournament. Currently the two have together created 31 goals in the Premier League, the only achievement less than legendary Chelsea duo Frank Lampard – Didier Drogba (36 goals).

In addition to expertise, Son Heung Min also has great commercial value thanks to his reputation spreading throughout the Korean homeland to Asian countries.

Chelsea left Kane & Son Heung Min stunned

Chelsea became the first team to stop Tottenham’s scoring streak in the Premier League thanks to the defense of goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.

Chelsea and Tottenham were unable to find a goal in the most remarkable big battle of the Premier League round 10. With a squad of both sides in high form combined with the tactical certainty of both manager Frank Lampard and Jose Mourinho, both defenses have been impenetrable despite some delicious opportunities. appearance.

This is an unusual match for both sides because each team has played quite coherently since the beginning of the season and scored regularly in the Premier League. Until this match, Chelsea had only one game without scoring (against MU) and the same thing was Tottenham (against Everton), and each team had high-form strikers like Werner, Kane and Son Heung Min. .

But if Tottenham defended with the familiar Jose Mourinho style, Chelsea played for most of this match and still faced a few dangerous Spurs counterattacks. However, they have successfully kept a clean sheet thanks to the certainty of the defenders quartet, the form of the back line continues to be the driving force for Chelsea to be in the championship competition group.

Especially since there was goalkeeper Edouard Mendy in the wooden frame, Chelsea has achieved defensive achievements that they never had when Kepa started. The last Tottenham draw was the 5th match in the Premier League this season, Mendy kept a clean sheet, thereby leading him to lead the league in this category. He has only conceded 3 goals and has kept a clean sheet in 8/11 matches.

With midfielder Thiago Silva – Kurt Zouma defending front, Mendy and the Chelsea defenders ended the scoring streak of Tottenham’s Kane & Son, as Spurs has consistently scored in the Premier League since the game. lost to Everton early in the season. Chelsea has the second least conceding record with 10 goals (Tottenham conceded 9 goals), but up to 9 of them have come in the match Kepa and Willy Caballero started.

Although Chelsea spent more than £ 200 million buying troops this summer and so far almost every rookie has proven worthwhile, no one is leaving a bigger mark than Edouard Mendy, because even if Thiago Silva played, Chelsea still conceded 3 goals against West Brom because of Kepa. Chelsea’s defense is equally sure when they first started being led by Mourinho, and the great success is thanks to the reliable temple guard.

The case of Son Heung Min can spread Covid-19

Son Heung Min is at risk of contracting Covid-19 after 4 Korean players are positive.

South Korea is in a state of turmoil, while the team gathered in Austria to prepare for two friendly matches against Mexico and Qatar. According to news from the press of this country, 4 players Jo Hyun-Woo, Kwon Chang-Hoon, Hwang Inbeom and Lee Dong Joon along with one of the team’s entourage were Covid-19 positive and had to be told immediately. glass.

The source said that the Korean Football Federation (KFA) tried to create a safe gathering area for the country’s team, but in the end things were not guaranteed. The station was a hotel but the nearby training ground was an open training ground and could be accessed by outsiders, and the locals were quite indifferent to wearing masks. page even took photos of the Korean team practicing and a stranger was still running on the field.

It is known that the location that the KFA has chosen for South Korea to be stationed is actually in an area that was recently blocked by an outbreak, so they had to change locations urgently. In addition to the new destination being a place where epidemic prevention is loose, the KFA has also been criticized for choosing Austria to focus on while they have done a good job of epidemic prevention in the K-League (all year), only 1 player is positive).

And the issue that is of greatest concern to Premier League fans in general and Tottenham fans in particular is Son Heung Min. According to journalist Lee Hanshin working with Korean Tel, Son has been in contact with one of the positive players and he is currently on quarantine to wait for the test results.

In the very lucky case, Son will also have to quarantine for 1 week, that is if 2 or 3 consecutive test results show he is negative. If the striker is positive, he must be isolated for 14 days before being tested again.

Immediately after the gathering of this team, Son Heung Min will join Tottenham to welcome Man City on Saturday night, November 21 in the Premier League. If there is at least 1 week of isolation, Son will almost certainly not be able to attend this important great battle, a match where if he wins Tottenham will temporarily climb to the top of the table while Leicester City prepare to meet Liverpool (Sunday night).

The title era of Son Heung Min (Part 2)

Tottenham does not seem to have reached the strength of a champion, although it is impossible to say anything about the form of the Premier League giants this season as each side has soon revealed cracks in their armor.

Even champions Liverpool have lost Virgil Van Dijk and are leaving defensive concerns, so Tottenham’s hope is still there.

But the biggest chances for Tottenham seem to lie in the cup fronts. They are proving very strong in the Europa League as well as continuing to maintain the League Cup & FA Cup front. Coach Jose Mourinho in his career always attaches great importance to the League Cup arena, so it would not be surprising if he decides to join his students on that front if it is the only chance for Spurs to have the title.

Mourinho is using Son in the best way of his career by not only getting along well with Harry Kane, but also by the powerful support from full-backs like Sergio Reguilon and Serge Aurier. And he also has a B option for attackers, with Carlos Vinicius, Erik Lamela, Gareth Bale, Steven Bergwijn to keep Son, Kane and Lucas Moura strong without affecting the gameplay.

Everything is ideal for Son Heung Min and the rest is just how long he will continue to maintain his current form. Certainly the opponents have started to pay attention to him and Kane and the attacking style of Spurs, and the difficulty from now on will only increase. But those are the necessary challenges for Son to deserve the acclaim that he is “Asian Ronaldo”.

And if this season, Son helped Tottenham win the Premier League and won himself a personal title as top scorer, Son Heung Min will surely be praised no less than the Portuguese version of Ronaldo.

The title era of Son Heung Min (Part 1)

8 goals after 6 games, that is the number of Son Heung Min leading the list of Premier League top scorer in 2020/21 season.

Not Salah, Mane, Sterling, Aguero, Werner, Jamie Vardy, Aubameyang Rashford or Martial. Son Heung Min contributes 50% of the goals for Tottenham, and 8 of his goals are equal to the number of goals scored by both Arsenal and Man City.

Ronaldo in the 2007/08 boom season for MU, the season that helped him win the first Golden Ball in his career, did not start as well as Son when he still had no goals for MU after the 6th round of the Premier League. This is Son’s sixth season in the Premier League and he has scored 61 goals in 166 games, while Ronaldo has 84 goals in 196 games. Son will have to end the season at 31 goals to balance Ronaldo’s performance, he has to score 23 more.

In the history of football, there has been a rare Asian striker that has created a great dispute for the top scorer in a European league, except for Cha Bum Kun, another South Korean player who still has a record. No. 1 Asian striker in Bundesliga history. Even at the peak of the form for Bayer Leverkusen, Cha Bum Kun still has only 17 goals in the 1985/86 season, the most and still stands below 3 other strikers.

But with Son Heung Min, the opportunity is ahead of him to become the first Asian player to win the Premier League top scorer. The competition is certainly fierce because Aubameyang, Salah, Ings, Vardy and recently Calvert-Lewin are all able to catch up, but Son is in an era of top form and Kane’s support, like Ronaldo and Rooney.

This will be an unpredictable season for the Premier League because we have seen surprises like Everton and Aston Villa climbing to the top of the chart, or Leeds just taking the top 4 despite having just promoted. Particularly with Tottenham, they won bold victories in the Europa League and defeated MU 6-1, but in the middle of those results was being held by Newcastle, which was a 3-3 draw against West Ham despite leading 3-0.

Son Heung Min scored at Tottenham, given a new contract

Son Heung Min is in brilliant form in the Premier League and is about to receive a big bonus from Tottenham with a new contract, a new salary.

Son Heung Min is playing increasingly sublimated in the Tottenham shirt. The South Korean striker took all the individual titles awarded by the club last season and continued to shine in the first few rounds of the Premier League.

After the first 5 rounds, Son Heung Min and Calvert Lewin (Everton) are “top scorer” in the Premier League with 7 goals. Tottenham’s No. 7 had a poker shot (scored 4 goals) against Southampton, contributed 2 goals in the 6-1 great win over MU and had 1 goal against West Ham in the last round. In addition, Son Heung Min also has 2 assists in the Premier League.

Thus, the Korean striker has an average record of scoring or assisting 1.8 times / match in the Premier League. This is a desirable number for any player playing in the tournament known as the toughest on the planet.

However, the brilliant form of Son Heung Min made the Tottenham leadership worried because the contract of both sides was only valid for 2 years when this season ended. Currently, the South Korean striker is valued at £ 67.5 million (according to Transfermarkt) and could increase further in the near future. However, that also did not prevent the big players’ interest in Tottenham’s No. 7.

Remember, Son Heung Min is not just valuable on the pitch. According to the latest statistics, the number of Tottenham fans in Korea has surpassed MU and possibly Asia in the coming time thanks to the presence of the striker born in 1992. This is a “fertile” land that All the big Europeans wanted to gain in order to increase their reputation and market share.

To avoid being pushed into a passive position in the event of having to sit at the negotiating table, Tottenham president Daniel Levy plans to keep the Korean striker. According to his Telegraph, “Rooster” is negotiating a contract extension with Son Heung Min with a new salary.

Currently the number of years and salary in the draft contract has not been disclosed, but it will almost certainly not be less than £ 150,000 / week. Song Heung Min is enjoying a salary of £ 110,000 / week at Tottenham.

This move by Daniel Levy shows that the England boss of Tottenham is afraid of appearing “second Eriksen”. The Danish midfielder was once one of the club’s most expensive players, but Tottenham had to sell quickly because he did not want to extend when the contract was only 1 year.

However, if he received a new salary of £ 150,000 / week, although very high for an Asian player, Son Heung Min could not be in the top of the highest-paid star in the Premier League. Son’s salary is only in the form of “gentle village” compared to other superstars. In the top 10 highest-paid players in the Premier League, according to The Sun’s statistics, salaries are from £ 220,000 / week or more. The highest is now Aubameyang at £ 350,000 / week with extra fees at Arsenal.

Son Heung Min shocked the Premier League: Going straight to the first title?

Son was voted into Hamburg’s all-time squad in 2018. At once won many glory (including the European Cup) and in his ranks at least two Golden Ball winners, Son again won a solemn place by helping Hamburg relegate a season with important goals from the bench, and the following season the main kick helped Hamburg finish seventh in the Bundesliga.

Has Son Heung Min been interested in Europe’s biggest football teams? Maybe, many years ago he was rumored to join Bayern Munich to play in the familiar German football environment. However, that rumor went nowhere and Son probably won’t leave Tottenham for many more years.

When Son’s talent was noticed, he was still a winger for two top-tier Bundesliga football teams, and the moment he joined Tottenham ensured that he joined a top club in the world. very difficult. Chairman Daniel Levy is a man that the giants are very fed up with because he always tries to get as much money as possible if he has to sell his stars.

Moreover, Son for many years had to worry about his future military service, so that the big clubs did not dare come close. The Korean star is now 28 years old and Real Madrid, Barcelona or Bayern would rather invest in younger players, and life in London is quite pleasant so Son will be happy to stay with Spurs despite the opportunity to compete.

But in this season 2020/21, the title chance for Tottenham still exists. Mourinho attaches great importance to the cup game and his forces are able to go far in the knockout tournaments, not to mention he has two more quality reinforcements from Madrid, Gareth Bale & Sergio Reguilon. Bale’s addition is notable because, despite the old age, Bale is still a top player in the world and has won a lot of success.

The Tottenham attacker recently is their ability to attack mass defenders, and now Bale and Reguilon will help solve the problem somewhat. Bale will take the place of Lucas Moura, who is very aggressive in defense but is not as effective at attacking as Bale when operating in tight spaces. Kane – Son – Bale will be a powerful trio and will also be provided with the ball by an increasingly progressive player Giovani Lo Celso.

Winning the Premier League is afraid it is too difficult for Tottenham because they have not reached the level of Liverpool or Man City, but the cup arena is completely possible. Son Heung Min, Harry Kane and Tottenham players may not have to wait long to get the moment to lift the championship trophies.

Son Heung Min shocked the Premier League: Going straight to the first title? (Part 1)

Son Heung Min is on his way to becoming a monument at Tottenham. Will the poker hit against Southampton be the start of a journey for him to win a title for the first time for Spurs?

Son Heung Min is not a less talented player, but he can hardly reach the level of Mohamed Salah or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. That is why Son compensates with hard work, and most importantly, simplicity in action.

The main factor that helps Son kick anywhere is because he always practices to develop his basic skills as a whole. He practiced kicking & passing well with both feet, tried to speed up and chose the position without the ball, practiced to control a narrow space and participated in the dispute. Focusing on the basics of the training ground, Son also brings a simple mindset to the game.

Perhaps among the current Premier League strikers, Son is the most direct and simplest player. He passed simply and moved wide around the opponent’s penalty area waiting for his chance to finish without ever extending the ball. In a quick counter-attack, Son’s speed is truly a nightmare for any center-back no matter how fast.

And he also brings a necessary energy source in the defensive front. Son, with Kane since taking up the position at Tottenham, have often made more fouls than defenders, because Spurs’ defense starts from the striker. Son is particularly good at cutting passes, he is the one who cuts the most passes among Tottenham strikers in the Premier League season 2019/20.

Son is fortunate again to come to a club like Tottenham, coach Mauricio Pochettino and his pressing style makes Son more valuable and now Jose Mourinho is even more important to him because of his fast and not colorful style. . Pochettino held Son to stay when he was about to leave for Germany after the bad first season of 2015/16, and Mourinho since taking the lead has not once criticized Son.
