Heung-Min Son is a South Korean attacking midfielder who has made a name for himself as a result of the stunning goals he has scored for the club. Son joined Tottenham Hotspur in August 2015.
As a teenager, Heung-Min Son moved to Germany where he finished his development for Hamburger SV, making his impressive Bundesliga debut a memorable one by scoring against FC Koln in October 2010. He totalled 78 appearances for Hamburg – in which he netted 20 goals – before transferring to Bayer Leverkusen in 2013. His prolific goal scoring pattern did not diminish in Germany; he scored 29 goals in 87 appearances in all competitions.
Since joining Spurs in 2015, Heung-Min Son has impressed both in the Premier League and in Tottenham Hotspur’s wider competitions. He hit the ground running by scoring a brace on his home debut against Qarabag, netting the only goal of the game in the Premier League just three days later.
Son’s success has continued for Spurs over his three years at the club; his goal against Crystal Palace in 2017 meant that Son became the highest-scoring Asian player in the history of the Premier League. Son has won the Asian Football Confederation International Player of the Year twice; and in 2017, was dubbed Top South Korean Male Footballer at the Korean Football Association awards. In his 2016-17 campaign, he was presented with two EA SPORTS Player of the Month awards. No wonder he’s a fan favourite!
Hueng-Min Son has been a senior international player for South Korea since 2010 and has earned 61 caps for his nation. Son proved a key player for them in the 2014 World Cup and represented South Korea in the 2011 and 2015 Asian Cups, finishing runners-up in the latter.
