In an interview with the Premier League Season Review (5/24/22 at 3:55 p.m.), Ian Wright revealed he was puzzled as to why Spurs striker Son Heung-min is never linked to a other clubs.
Son has lit up the Premier League this year, with the South Korean scoring 23 goals and registering nine assists to complete his most productive year yet (TransferMarkt).
Son’s goalscoring heroism also saw him crowned with the Golden Boot, becoming the first Asian player to do so in English football’s top flight (Tottenham Hotspur).
With no penalty goals in his tally (TransferMarkt) and while facing prolific players like Mohamed Salah, Cristiano Ronaldo and teammate Harry Kane, Son’s achievement speaks for itself.
Wright, a former Arsenal fan favourite, was full of praise for Son but admitted he was confused as to why the 29-year-old had never been linked with a departure from North London.
He said: “I’m glad he won it because he doesn’t bind (away from the club) and that’s strange.
“He has pace. He finishes both feet. It works backwards and can do anything. Son can collect the ball in his own half and cross the whole team.
“I don’t understand how he’s not linked to more teams? But what I’m happy for him is that he has something to show to be one of the best players in this league.
With Son signing a new contract with Spurs at the start of the season which runs until 2025 (Sky Sports), it is not impossible to imagine that he will finish his career at Spurs.
Boosts web opinion
Spurs fans will know how lucky we are to have a player of Sonny’s caliber who loves the club as much as he does. He delivers for us when we need him the most and it’s normal to see him win accolades.
He’s sure to remain a club legend no matter what until 2025, but hopefully the next three years will be filled with silverware.
