Son is no stranger to the adoration of South Koreans. He is the national team’s captain and has played in two World Cup tournaments. However, his performances with Tottenham over the past few years have cemented his status as a hero in his home country.
During Tottenham’s pre-season tour in Asia, Son has played a major role in the team’s games against Juventus, Manchester United, and Kashiwa Reysol. In Korea, thousands of fans came to see the team practice and Son in particular.
