Report: Spurs superstar bestowed with prestigious national award

Tottenham Hotspur ace Son Heung-min has been awarded the prestigious Cheongnyong Medal

As confirmed by the club’s official website, Tottenham Hotspur superstar Son Heung-min has been awarded the prestigious Cheongnyong Medal by South Korean president Yoon-Suk-yeol.

The 29-year-old is one of the best players in the world and has gained more recognition in recent seasons thanks to his exploits in North London. Son finished the 2021/22 Premier League campaign as the joint top scorer along with Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.

The 23 goals scored in the league this season is Son’s best return in Spurs colours. It also aided them in their efforts to finish in the top four and secure a spot in next season’s UEFA Champions League.

Son Heung-min is a sensational footballer.

Son is arguably the best Asian player to play in England and his recent exploits are indicative of just that. Him winning the Cheongnyong Medal is no surprise given that it recognises outstanding achievement in sports.

The South Korean president himself bestowed the medal onto Son ahead of the nation’s international friendly against Brazil. There was little Son could have done on the night as the Selecao ran out 5-1 winners.

Son completed the 90 minutes but had little impact on the game. He has now won 99 caps for the Asian giants and could become just the 11th player in history to make 100 or more caps for South Korea.

At 29, there is still much to come from him and Son could yet write his name into history books several times. We hope the next few times, it will be for bringing glory to Tottenham.

It is heartening to see the Spurs star be given the recognition he so richly deserves. Hopefully, trophies too will soon start to flow under Antonio Conte at the Lane. It will further boost what is already a rich heritage that the South Korean has in the English game.

All that remains is for him to win a trophy with the Lilywhites. He is arguably the best export from South Korea in the PL but Park Ji-Sung has a trophy cabinet full of silverware during his time at Manchester United.
