Son is a fantastic athlete.
Son Heung-min’s previous season at Tottenham was challenging.
The South Korean appeared nothing like his normal self and managed just 10 goals in the Premier League during the entire season. It was later discovered that he was hindered by an injury.
Son has now tallied 12 goals and five assists in the Premier League this year. He has a very good possibility of scoring 20 goals, which would be a remarkable accomplishment. He already has the support of Ange Postecoglou to be named to the Team of the Season.
Ronaldo, who has been scoring goals for pleasure in Saudi Arabia, will not be pleased that he did not receive the honor. However, Son’s performance in the world’s toughest league is undoubtedly the reason he was selected.
