On September 5th (KST), Tottenham Hotspur FC celebrated its 141st anniversary

In the commemorative poster released through their official channels, Son Heung-min stood front and center among other iconic players in the club's history.

While the poster features numerous players who have contributed to Tottenham's legacy, Son Heung-min's picture is prominently displayed, emphasizing his current standing within the team. Notable former Tottenham players like Luka Modric, Dimitar Berbatov, Ledley King, and Robbie Keane also make appearances, as do Son's current and former teammates Harry Kane, Lucas Moura, and Dele Alli. Among the players featured, only Son and Hugo Lloris are current members of the squad. Coach Nuno Espirito Santo is also depicted, holding his fist tightly under Son.


 

Since transferring to Tottenham in 2015, Son has played nine seasons, making 377 appearances and scoring 148 goals. He currently ranks sixth on Tottenham's all-time goal-scoring list. Particularly in the 2021-2022 season, he became the first Asian player to be the joint top-scorer in the EPL with 23 goals.

This year is also special for Son as he was named the first captain under the new management of Nuno Espirito Santo. With the previous captain Hugo Lloris expected to leave and the vice-captain Harry Kane having transferred to Bayern Munich, the choice for captain fell on Son. Vice-captains are new signing James Maddison and key center-back Christian Romero.

Thus, Son became the second Korean player to captain an EPL team, following Park Ji-sung who captained Queens Park Rangers in the 2012-2013 season. Since the season's opening, Son has been performing spectacularly, contributing to Tottenham's current strong run in the league.


 

Praises for Captain Son continue to pour in. American sports network CBS Sports highlighted that Tottenham now has a top-notch forward in Son. British media outlets Evening Standard and Football London also commended Son's performances, emphasizing that he has more than filled the void left by Kane's departure.
