Son Heung-min has admitted that it was not until after the final whistle against Burley last season that he realised what a special goal he had scored.

The Tottenham forward picked up the FIFA Puskas award for the best goal scored in the calendar year for his brilliant solo-effort against the Clarets last December

Jose Mourinho admitted that almost everyone at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium that day knew that they had witnessed something special and insisted that it was never in doubt that the 28-year-old would win the award (Football.London).

However, Son admitted that he did not realise during the moment how good a goal it was.

Watch the moment the 28-year-old was declared the winner and his acceptance speech below:

It was typically humble of Son to play down the quality of his effort but there is no doubt that it was a moment of genius from the South Korean and that he fully deserved the award.
