Prior to that, he had the threat of Hamburger SV's academy, and entered the League.
The målfarlige season, becoming the then-most expensive asian player ever, and with a move to north London for a reported fee of 22 million pounds, the equivalent of about $ 250 million.
" I feel a lot of responsibility, but are also proud of the fact that Tottenham hotspur have valued me so highly. It is important for players to feel appreciated. Now, I am here to show you that I'm worth it, " said Son Heung-min at the changeover time, according to the Evening Standard.
the SportExpressen has taken a close look at Tottenham hotspur's years, and his importance to the club, as well as the impact of his early life and the origins of imprinted on him, both on and off the field.
”a Very respectful person who doesn't get in trouble”
In the interviews, as Son Heung-min, who moved to London, he proudly declared that it was his father who taught him everything. A few years later, in a lengthy interview with The Guardian, he described his early life in more detail. The father, Son Woong-Jung, was fotbollscoach of the school team, and was always hard on his son, especially when he dropped the ball.
Gabriel Jonsson is a senior lecturer in the Korean department at Stockholm university, and says that the rigorous training is in line with the fierce competition of the republic of Korea.
" It's the best example of this is that the major goal of growing up is to get into a university. Consequently, pupils are extremely demanding of the tests, and go the extra tuition after regular school. It is something that everyone lives with. To stand out and be successful, it has a great meaning, and you may be able to see the sport as a means of success in studies, " says Gabriel Jonsson.
one thing is clear is that Son Heung-min have the utmost of respect vis-à-vis his or her family. He has embraced his father's philosophy.
According to him, it's just there to keep the focus on the right things, that is to say, his career as a football player. In an interview with The Guardian, he says that he is living with his parents in a two-bedroom apartment in a Victorian, and his father's advice, decided to postpone marriage until after their careers.
" There are different attitudes in Europe and Asia, and, of course, to the thinking of the people, Why does he live with his parents?” But who cares apart from me? Who is the one that helps me to play a game of football? It is to them. They have given up their lives to move over here and help me out. I will have to pay it back to them.

However, the life of the band, where he has been seen to date in the Korean popsångerskor is not the Son Heung-min in the wild. On the contrary, the.
" he's not married, so there was never any problem with him. He is never seen in the magazines, and the unwanted headlines on the front page. He is a very respectful person who doesn't get into trouble. Maybe he has a little bit of the temper of the plan, which, as we have seen, but it's just a little bit of a problem, " says Jonathan Veal is watching the League of the Press Association.
in Addition to the fotbollsstjärnans technical qualities, he has distinguished himself by the way he has to be. The majority of the pictures, he has a wide smile, his great energy and a heart-shaped hand gestures, he has become a favourite with the Players-the supporters. In season 2019/2020, he was holding his hands over his head in order to protect the child, who accompanied him in on the plan from the rain.
Son Heung-min, - directed, or are their actions genuine?
Jonathan Veal in any case, that it is artificial.
" He's just the way he is portrayed in social media. He communicates well as he is fluent in English, but the language might prevent him from making those explosive interviews. However, he has to answer for what he asked. And prior to the coronavirus as it was in the mixed zone, he stopped to talk with a large group of media from the republic of Korea, regardless of how it's been in the game. I think it shows what kind of person he is.
High loyalty to the homeland
Son Heung-min, and grew up in Daegu in Gangwon, a province in the north-east, south Korea, and belonged to FC Seoul before he was 16 years old she moved to Germany. On the streets, at home, he is just as noted as a rock star, and, at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, you can always find the Korean fans with flags in the audience. In an interview with "The Guardian" and declared the Son of god, how dedicated the fans are.
" I feel like an ambassador for my country. Of course, I have to. For example, when we were playing at three o'clock in the afternoon, it is midnight in new zealand. When we are playing in the Champions League, at eight o'clock in the evening, at five o'clock in the morning, and they are still. I will have to pay it back to them, and there is a high degree of responsibility.
Jonathan Veal at the Press Association, believes that the Son of god is not only a major asset of the plan, but also to the outside of the Lane.
Their brand has been able to grow in Asia thanks to him. They would have been on a tour in south Korea this summer, which would have been even better for them, but in the end, however, they are set on the basis of the pandemic. < / p> https://twitter.com/theafcdotcom/status/1258728542608687104
Son Heung-min believes that loyalty is the alpha and the O. this is Something that haunted him, and he did not get the consent of Bayer Leverkusen, to the republic of Korea, won the asian championships in 2014, which has been the compulsory military service.
in the Military service of 21 months, is something that everyone should do, but a win in the asian championships, making it as a professional footballer can have it shortened to a period of three weeks.
And in the year 2018, the won's Son, to the end of the asian championships, with their republic of Korea. In the spring of 2020, when the Premier League was dimmed on the basis of the corona, he did his time in the army.
" This is a very important issue, because of the poor relationship with north Korea. That does not make my military service is a negative in the other people's eyes is a purely career-wise. Those who suffer from it can have various medical issues but in some cases, it has been the subject of some debate. There was a presidential candidate, whose sons managed to get away with the questionable grounds that they were underweight, whether it is true or not, I don't know, " says Gabriel Jonsson.
Mourinho: ”and His culture is certainly one reason”
Son Heung-min scored his first goal for Tottenham hotspur on 13th september 2015 in a match against Sunderland, and although he made a couple of important actions so he will not have a designated player. The season 2016/2017, when he won the former manager Mauricio Pochettinos confidence and scored 21 goals. Since then, he has been a key player in the club's progression in the premier league, which culminated with the uefa Champions League final in 2019.
and the following Season became the League at the very least, an oscillating one with most losses, and the coachbyte of Mauricio Pochettino to Jose Mourinho. But Son Heung-min has also been able to win with their new coach's confidence.
Jonathan Veal says that the love of the player.
" There is no doubt that the Son of god has reached another level under Mourinho, in particular, in respect of his trades. He has made 11 goals and 10 assists in the 28 games he has started. It's pretty good.
but the love was not weaker, for the Son of klassmål against Burnley, where he ran the ball in from just outside their own penalty area, past the entire defense. What got you Who remember back to when he was sitting next to Sir Bobby Robson in a match-up between the Hostel and in Barcelona in 1996, and He scored the goal in a different way. At the press conference after the game, he was asked if the Son of god, was a drömspelare” to the coach.
" I had the feeling that he was there. In his culture, it can certainly play a role, and he's very, very easy to coach. I was able to meet his parents, and I can understand where they're coming from. There is a great guy. Son Heung-min,
