Although he did not score, Son Heung-min also left a mark in Tottenham’s 3-star victory against Leicester City in the 37 Premier League round. The 27-year-old striker was the one who launched the nasty goal to make the ball beat the opponent defender’s foot, bringing the score to Spurs.
Immediately after the match, Son was honored by Tottenham with all 4 individual titles including Spurs Player of the Season, Spurs’s best goal of the season, the best player selected by the youth team, and Spurs’ best player of the season according to NHM polls worldwide.
This is the first time an Asian player has done this not only at Tottenham but also in the history of the Premier League. With 18 goals and 11 assists, “Sonny” deserves this award from the host team.
However, this was an unsuccessful season for the Tottenham Hotspur team. In addition to being eliminated early by Leipzig in the round of 16 of the Champions League, Mourinho’s army also has no chance to win tickets to the Champions League next season.
