Heung-min Son scored yet again for Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday night.
The South Korean came up trumps yet again for the Lilywhites as Mauricio Pochettino’s side placed one foot in the Champions League quarter-finals after beating Borussia Dortmund 3-0 at Wembley.
Son opened the scoring in the second half and proved a menace for the Germans’ defence.
Goals from Jan Vertonghen and substitute Fernando Llorente followed, and Spurs are now looking at their first quarter-final appearances since the 2010/11 season.
Son’s goal was his 11th in his last 16 games in all competitions, and his red hot form is forcing people to tout him as a potential PFA Player of the Year candidate.
After a somewhat tired start to 2018/19 following his exertions at the World Cup and the Asian Games, it is quite remarkable to see Son stepping up to the mark so regularly, especially in the absence of Harry Kane and Dele Alli.
A club legend in the making?
It is fair to say that Son is already something of a cult hero amongst Tottenham supporters.
His quality on the pitch coupled with a his immense likability make him a hugely popular figure at the club.
Should he stick around for a few more years at the club then there’s every chance Son could go from cult hero to a bonafide Tottenham legend.
He gives his all for the team every single game and is hugely selfless and modest.
His popularity will explode if he can play a significant part in helping Tottenham win a trophy in the next couple of years.
Given his fantastic ability, he has every chance of being able to do that.
