Tottenham Hotspur: Insider left fuming at Son Heung-Min news

Tottenham Hotspur: Insider left fuming at Son Heung-Min news -Tottenham Hotspur News

Tottenham Hotspur insider John Wenham believes it’s a ‘disgrace’ that Son Heung-Min has been excluded from the PFA’s Premier League team of the season.

The Lowdown: Son misses out on recognition

It was announced earlier this month that the 29-year-old had been left out of the nominations list for the PFA’s player’s player of the year award. A week later, he missed out on the official team of the year.

The forward had a hugely impressive season, scoring more top-flight goals than Sadio Mane and Cristiano Ronaldo throughout the course of the campaign, both of whom managed to make the cut.

The Latest: ‘Disgrace’

Speaking to Football Insider, Wenham was furious with the decision and couldn’t understand why Son had been omitted.

“It’s a disgrace, I can’t think of another word for it. It was 11 players selected this time, we already knew he had missed out on the six-man player of the year shortlist.

“Ronaldo got 18 goals and three assists, Sonny got 23 goals and nine assists for a team that finished fourth, make it make sense.

“It is utterly not fair and not right really. To miss out on the entire team of 11, I am really struggling with that.

“The players chose it, I was desperate to blame it on people in suits who don’t know football. I just find it frustrating because it’s not fair. Son had a better season than Kane and he’s in the team. It’s just not fair.”

The Verdict: Completely wrong decision

The South Korean was probably Tottenham’s number one standout performer this term and had a remarkable return, recording 34 goal contributions in 45 appearances across all competitions, per Transfermarkt, so how he wasn’t recognised for his achievements is scarcely unbelievable.

The 100-cap international also made history when he became the first ever Asian player to get his hands on the Premier League golden boot award, sharing it with Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah after both netting 23 times.

Spurs fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the season against Man City?

There’s no doubting that Son should have been rewarded for his efforts, but the most important thing now is that he gets his head down during pre-season and keeps up the hard work and prolific form ready to go again come the beginning of August.

In other news… the Lilywhites are reportedly interested in a move for a former Premier League winger.
