Son Heung-min (30, Tottenham) is one of the players representing the entire English Premier League (EPL).
Tottenham played the 28th round of the온라인바카라 Premier League in the 2022-23 season with Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium in England on the 19th (Korean time). It was a confrontation between Tottenham, who is fighting for fourth place, and Southampton, who is fighting for relegation.
Son Heung-min started with Harry Kane, Richarlison, Oliver Skip, Ben Davis, and Eric Dyer. Southampton made Theo Walcott, James Ward-Prowse and Kyle Walker-Peters as starters. Players from both teams exchanged greetings before kickoff.
The home team, Southampton, selected two local children as escort kids and placed them in front of the Southampton squad. Each wore a white and blue Southampton uniform. They took a commemorative photo in the center circle with the Southampton and Tottenham captains, the match referees, and the Southampton mascot doll.
The next scene caught my attention. According to a recent video from football intuition YouTuber ‘Football on Air’, two Southampton kids ran into Son Heung-min on their way out to the tunnel after taking a commemorative photo. A child in a white uniform first approached Son Heung-min and extended his hand. Soon after, the child in the blue uniform also held out his hand. Son Heung-min readily put his hands together at the two little fans’ request for a high-five.
Home team fans greet away players? This is something that often happens to Son Heung-min. Heung-Min Son is one of the few players favored by fans of every Premier League team. When surveys are conducted by various media outlets asking “Who is the player without anti-fans in the Premier League?”, Son Heung-min often competes with N’Golo Kante (Chelsea) for first or second place.
It is especially popular with young children. Delilah Thorpe, a famous Tottenham girl fan, explained why she likes Son Heung-min as follows. “It is true that I like him because he is good at soccer, but I like Son Heung-min because he is always smiling. He also really likes the ‘click ceremony’ he shows after scoring a goal.”
Like this, there is a reason why Son Heung-min is loved by men and women of all ages.
