Earlier this season, Tottenham Hotspur attacker Heung-Min Son became the top Asian goalscorer in the history of the Premier League.
The 25-year-old joined Tottenham from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2016, and he has found the back of the net on 23 occasions in 79 Premier League games for the London club.
There was another award for Son earlier this week as he was named the 2017 South Korean Footballer of the Year.
Tottenham’s Twitter account posted a tribute to the attacker, and as expected, the club’s supporters were out in force to offer their own praise.
Son netted 21 times in 47 appearances for Tottenham during a very impressive 2016-17 season, and despite the fact that Spurs have struggled for consistency this term, the attacker has managed eight goals in 24 appearances in all competitions.
Son, who is valued at £27m by transfermarkt.co.uk, has also scored 20 goals in 61 appearances for South Korea, including three in his last nine matches for his nation.
It is not difficult to see why the attacker is so popular with the Tottenham fans.
