Mr. Tottenham… Son Heung-min re-signs with Tottenham!

‘Mr. Tottenham’ Son Heung-min, 31, is set to stay with Tottenham Hotspur.

“Tottenham have now confirmed that they are desperate to re-sign their captain,” said Mark Bridge of British outlet Sky Sports.

Son, who joined Spurs from Bayer 04 Leverkusen in 2015, is now in his 10th year with the club. He struggled to settle in during his early days at the club, but all concerns were put to rest in time. In nine seasons, he has scored 159 goals and provided 88 assists in 398 games, making him a legend in his own right.

He was even awarded the Premier League Golden Boot (top scorer) in the 2021/22 season, earning him the catchy nickname ‘Mr. Tottenham’.

But it’s not just his offense. His work ethic and leadership have been the talk of the town in England, and he was even handed the captain”s armband before the season started. Harry Kane’s move to Bayern Munich left a gaping hole.

In the meantime, there was some criticism. With no trophies to show for his time at Tottenham, there were some who wanted him to leave, but he chose to stay with the club that had put their faith in him for so long, and with just over a year left on his contract, he is once again in contract talks.

Bridges also emphasized Son’s importance to the team on several occasions. “He’s not just a great player on the pitch,” Bridges said, “he’s an ambassador for the club and a global star. “He’s an ambassador for the club, he’s a global star, and he’s doing a great job as captain after Kane,” he said.

Son Heung-min is already one of the highest paid players on the team. If he were to sign a new contract, it would be the best deal in the club’s history. At the same time, Son is in his 30s, so it”s likely that he”ll finish his European career at Tottenham. The fans would welcome the news with open arms.

Over the past few years, Son has been attracting a lot of attention from the Saudi Professional League, which has been investing aggressively in the 안전놀이터 player. In particular, last summer, CBS Sports reported that Al Ittihad were prepared to pay a whopping 30 million euros (approx. 436 million won) to sign Son Heung-min.

However, Tottenham fans shouldn’t be too worried. “I still have a lot of work to do in the Premier League,” Son Heung-min has said in the past, adding that his brother (Ki Sung-yong) also turned down offers from Chinese teams in the past. He said, ‘The captain of the Korean national team doesn’t go to China. I’m more interested in playing in the league I love than money,” he said.
