Son Joins Elite Spurs Club ..

Recommended Posts

Son Heung-min joined an exclusive club at Tottenham Hotspur with his early goal against Wolfsberger on Thursday night.

The South Korean star stooped to send a header into the Austrian side's net from Gareth Bale's cross in the first half of the Europa League round of 32 first leg tie in Budapest.

It was Son's 18 goal of the season which, when allied with his 12 assists, means the 28-year-old has directly contributed towards 30 goals in 35 matches this season.

The strike in Hungary also elevated Son into exclusive company at Tottenham. That header meant Son became only the fourth Spurs player in the club's history to score 20 goals in European competition - not including qualifiers - after his team-mate Harry Kane (29), Martin Chivers (22) and Jermain Defoe (20).

With Tottenham 3-0 up at half-time, Jose Mourinho took Son off to rest him for Sunday's Premier League derby at West Ham, replacing him with Carlos Vinicius.

"Son played 90 minutes against West Brom, and 120 against Everton, 90 against City, and today I just asked him to do his job, and his job was to help us a little bit to get through this match," said the Spurs boss.

"So I believe 3-0, scoring his goal, which for him is a special goal, he is a very sensitive special kid, emotional kid, so he is the last winner of the Puskas Award, and to come here to the Puskas Arena, and score a goal for him has a really special feeling.

"Job done. Goodbye. Let Vinicius play. Vinicius is a very hard-working guy, always ready to help the team when we need, so it was always fair for Vinicius to have 45 minutes and to score his goal."

The guy is a credit to the club and an ideal role model for any would be footballer with the manner in which he conducts himself both on and off the pitch. He looked much happier the other night with having Bale to play alongside. He clearly misses Kane but maybe now we have an alternative partner for him this season when Harry is not available. :16:

Not just a credit to the club but a credit and example to the whole of the footballing world. 

I love the guy. For  modesty, personality and dedication, he is out of the same mould as the wonderful Jimmy Greaves.
