Tottenham Hotspur striker Heung-Min Son has been expressing his pride at winning the EA Sports Player of the Month award – the first Asian footballer to take the prize.

The forward has scored four goals and grabbed one assist after replacing the injured Harry Kane in the team and helped them reach second spot in the Premier League, and was a key man in their 2-0 over Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City who are now just a point ahead of them.

The South Korean international said: “I can’t believe it, it’s unbelievable for me to get this award and it’s just an unbelievable feeling.

“September was a great month for me and I’m very thankful to my teammates, gaffer and coaching staff. It’s just a great feeling.”

“This is my dream, to get the award,” Son said. “I want to get it a second time, a third time. When I take the award home my family will be crazy like you can’t believe; they will be really happy.”
