7th consecutive Asian Best Player + Asian Cup Strongest Scorer Nominee. Asia is Living in ‘The Age of SON’


This is the wave of Son Heung-min (32) from Tottenham Hotspur. Indeed, he is the best player in Asia. It is Son’s “dignity.”

He has been named the best player in Asia for the seventh consecutive year. He is also considered the leading candidate for scoring at the Asian Cup. Son has not scored a single goal so far, but he is the top candidate for the top scorer.

Son Heung-min was named Asia’s best soccer player for the seventh consecutive year, beating Cristiano Ronaldo.

Chinese sports magazine Titan Sports announced on the 17th (Korea Standard Time) that “Son Heung-min has been selected as the best player in Asia 2023.”

It is the ninth time in his career that he has won the award for the seventh consecutive year.

Titan Sports established the award in 2013. It is the Asian version of Ballon dope. The award is given to players who play in countries and teams under the Asian Football Confederation.

Except for 2013 (Honda Keisuke) and 2016 (Okazaki Shinji), Son Heung-min was the likely winner. He had 22.9 percent of the votes, beating Kim Min-jae (19.5 percent) and Cristiano Ronaldo (17.06 percent).

“The candidate for the AFC Asian Cup Golden Boot is a four-way race,” said Olympic. “Son Heung-min of Korea, Takumi Minamino of Japan, and Takefusa of Kubo of Japan are expected to compete with Akram Afif of Qatar, who is leading in scoring with three goals in two matches.”

It is regrettable that Lee Kang-in, who scored multiple goals in the last match against Bahrain, was not nominated, but it is natural to put Son Heung-min as a strong scorer.

Son Heung-min was silent in the match against Bahrain last time, but he is Korea’s ace at the forefront. He can play as a left winger and a center striker at the same time, and has strong scoring capacity in Tottenham Hotspur. Given his position, he is in a position where he can score multiple goals. Moreover, Korea is highly likely to advance to the final.

Korea has a bad relationship with the Asian Cup. For 64 years, Korea has never lifted a trophy. Son Heung-min was no exception. He tried unsuccessfully twice.

He advanced to the final at the 2015 tournament, and was blocked by the wall of Australia. At that time, the coach was Tottenham manager Enzi Postecoglou, who boasts fantastic teamwork with Son Heung-min. 마카오토토

The two are currently playing together at Tottenham Hotspur. Postecoglou named Son the captain, who is the spearhead of Postecoglou’s strong attacking football. He is playing an active role as both captain and ace.

Son Heung-min’s strong performance is a prerequisite for Korea to win the championship. Korea has a strong squad including Lee Kang-in, Kim Min-jae and Hwang Hee-chan. The key is Son Heung-min.
