Tottenham News – Son Heung-min Ranked 26th Best Player In Europe By Sky Rankings

Published

on

Son Heung-Min, a South Korea international, player for Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur, has become one of the top players running in Europe, according to Sky Sports.

The 25-year-old scored in his previous game against Southampton on the Boxing Day on Tuesday. In more good news for the Tottenham Hotspur attacker, Sky Sports ranked him 26th and he was the only Asian on the list of the top 100 players in Europe’s five major leagues. The rankings were based on footballers in England, Spain, Germany, Italy and France.

Son scored the 4th goal in our team’s 5-2 victory over Southampton at Wembley Stadium. It was his 6th League goal and his 9th in the 2017-18 campaign, including 3 in the UEFA Champions League.

The South Korean, starting on the left wing, not only scored a goal but also collected two assists for Harry Kane and Dele Alli before being replaced in the 77th minute of the match.

“Son has risen to the occasion in terms of helping Kane with the goal scoring load at Tottenham, with 22 goals to his name this calendar year,” Sky Sports said about Son’s ranking, as reported by The Korea Times.

“Son also helped South Korea book their spot in the 2018 World Cup.”

For his unique quality and competitiveness, Son was also considered the 69th most valuable player in Europe’s top five leagues by the International Center for Sports Studies (CIES) Football Observatory under the International Federation of Football Association (FIFA) this January.

Meanwhile, in the Sky rankings, Lionel Messi of Barcelona took the No. 1 spot. Kane of Spurs and Neymar of PSG were 2nd and 3rd respectively. The 4th was Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid, winner of a record 5th Ballon d’Or trophy this year.

Coming back to Son, the Spurs forward became the all-time highest scoring Asian player in the Premier League with his strike against Crystal Palace in November.

Son’s strike was his 20th in a Tottenham shirt then, lifting him above countryman Park Ji-Sung, who scored 19 English top-flight goals while at Manchester United.

In late November, Son also won the 2017 AFC Asian International Player Of The Year. He beat the likes of Huddersfield’s Australian international Aaron Mooy and Borussia Dortmund’s Japanese international Shinji Kagawa to win the award for the second time in his career.
