Tottenham star Son Heung-Min is “so proud” after winning the Premier League Player of the Month award for September.
The South Korea international was given the award after scoring four goals in England’s top flight last month, scoring a brace against both Stoke and Middlesbrough.
Son, who has featured just six times for Spurs this season, declared his pride on his personal Instagram account ahead of Saturday’s clash against West Brom.
Son has been Mauricio Pochettino’s main source of goals this season.
His sparkling form also saw him score against CSKA Moscow to earn Spurs a priceless 1-0 Champions League win away in Russia, before providing the assist to Dele Alli’s goal against Manchester City prior to the international break.
England star Harry Kane remains on the sideline through injury, while new signing Vincent Janssen is yet to prove his £17million worth to Pochettino.
Formerly of Bundesliga sides Bayer Leverkusen and Hamburg, Son moved to Spurs after an impressive stint that saw him score 49 goals in 165 appearances in Germany from out wide or as an attacking midfielder.
However, Son failed to secure a regular first-team slot last season and rumours circulated throughout the summer over his Tottenham future.
Now, the 24-year-old is considered Spurs’ main threat as they look to leapfrog Manchester City in to the Premier League top spot.
In other Tottenham news, Tony Pulis has revealed what his relationship is like with Pochettino.
