After his stunning solo run against Burnley last season, Son Heung-min is the confirmed recipient of this year’s Puskas Award – news which will delight Tottenham supporters as the media have flocked in full reaction.
Son, who is currently at the centre of talks linking him with a new deal at Tottenham, has now received even more brilliant news after his Puskas award – with the South Korea star giving a candid interview during the ceremony.
Son takes home Puskas award
The 28-year-old attacker took to Instagram in celebration over this ‘very special’ news, saying he will ‘never forget‘ being awarded with the prestigious honour as he continues to light up the Premier League with Spurs this season.
His strike against Burnley certainly stands out, with Son feeding off a pass from club legend Jan Vertonghen inside his own half, picking up the ball, and starting a mazy run into the Clarets half – leaving half the team in his wake as he buried a fine shot past Nick Pope.
Tottenham ran out 5-0 victors that afternoon in a devastating performance, with the attacker taking huge plaudits for his wonder goal.
