According to a tweet, Mohamed Salah congratulated Tottenham star Son Heung-Min for sharing the Premier League Golden Boot as Salah and Son both scored 23 league goals this season, and the race for the accolade ended with both winning the trophy.
The 29-year-old South Korean forward has made an even bigger impression than usual as he signed a new four-year contract with Tottenham last year, giving the north London club a boost heading into the 2021/22 season. Son Heung-min scored twice in Tottenham’s 5-0 win over Norwich City, ensuring his team’s qualification for the Champions League next season as they beat Arsenal in the top four race.
Salah was humble and took to social media to congratulate Son. The Egyptian King liked the tweet and added: “Congratulations Sonny!” in a photo that showed the Tottenham star returning to his birthplace with the Golden Boot in hand.
Son has been one of the most underrated players as Harry Kane makes the headline most of the time though their relationship never affected their on and off-field chemistry which helps Tottenham qualify for UCL next season.
Salah led Spurs midfielder, Son, for the majority of the season, but his brilliant run in the final ten games helped him close the gap. This season, the 29-year-old scored 23 goals in the league while also contributing nine assists. What’s more impressive is that none of the goals was scored on penalty kicks.
Tottenham midfielder Son Heung-Min is the first Asian footballer to win the Premier League Golden Boot
Son scored 23 goals which made him the first player from Asia to receive the award of the most goals scored in a PL season. After Mohamed Salah scored an 80th-minute goal in Liverpool’s final match of the season, the South Korean midfielder was forced to share the accolade with him with 23 goals each.
Son Heung-min returned to his homeland after receiving the prestigious award of the Golden Boot and he was showered with love and praises as he is the first-ever Asian footballer to get his hands on the trophy after the ending the season with a joint- leading goal scorer in the premier league 2021/22 season.
