Congratulations are due to Heung-min Son who, after a rollicking few weeks for Tottenham, has been bestowed with the Premier League ‘Player of the Month’ award for September.

After enduring a patchy debut season last time out, Son came raring out of the blocks this season – scoring four goals over the course of September to help Spurs on their ascent to second in the table.

The 24-year-old South Korean international also becomes the first ever player of Asian descent to win the award, so that’s an extra little bit of awesome to be going on with.

Well played that man!

    South Korea, much like Japan, are a pretty solid outfit.

    Great to see the some of the powerhouses of Asia stepping up to the plate alongside Europe & South Amercia.

    Now what about China? Surely they have some world class talent?

    Mark Schwarzer not count? We are in the asian confederation….
