The trophy man has arrived at Tottenham… Player of the Month award arrives before ‘epic wait’ Son Heung-min
Son Heung-min has been awarded the Player of the Month award.
“Our captain has been awarded the Premier League (PL) September Player of the Month award,” Tottenham announced on their official social media accounts on September 20 (KST), sharing a photo of Son Heung-min holding the award. 토토사이트
It was on the 13th that Son Heung-min was awarded the PL September Player of the Month award. On September 13, the PL Secretariat announced, “Son Heung-min is the EA SPORTS Player of the Month for September 2023. The Tottenham captain scored six goals in four games, beating Burnley, Sheffield United, and Liverpool. His goal in the draw with Arsenal kept Spurs unbeaten on the season,” the organization said in a statement announcing the award.
Son’s award was announced, but he wasn’t able to accept it right away. He was in South Korea, far away from England, when the news broke. He was called up to the South Korean national team and learned that he had been named South Korea’s player of the month.
He received the news ahead of a friendly against Tunisia and expressed his gratitude from South Korea. “I just found out I’ve been named Premier League Player of the Month. I want to say thank you to everyone who voted for me, and I hope to continue my good form. I can’t wait for the next match against Fulham,” he said with a smile.
Son then returned to Tottenham after a one-goal, one-assist performance against Vietnam. Upon his arrival at Tottenham, Son was photographed with his Player of the Month award.
Heung-min always prioritizes team achievements over individual awards, but this one is special. This award ties him with Alan Shearer, Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, Frank Lampard, Paul Scholes, Mohamed Salah, Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, and Jamie Vardy as the only players to win the award four times.
Only six PL players in history have won more Player of the Month awards than Son Heung-min. They are Sergio Aguero, Harry Kane (seven times), Steven Gerrard, Cristiano Ronaldo (six times), Wayne Rooney, and Robin van Persie (five times). If Son continues to perform well this season, he could easily challenge Rooney and Van Persie’s records.
Tottenham have also won the Player and Manager of the Month awards for two consecutive months after the start of the season. This is the first time this has ever happened in PL history, so it’s a great start to the season for Spurs.
Meanwhile, Son Heung-min has had some injury concerns, but it doesn’t seem to be a major problem. Tottenham manager Enze Postecoglou said that there are no problems with the fitness of the international players who played in the A match against Fulham.
