Premier League was always the Goal — Son



Premier League was always the Goal -- Son

Money is important, but playing in the Premier League cannot be traded for another league, Son says on turning down lucrative Saudi Arabia move.

Tottenham Hotspur football star Heung-min Son has revealed his reasons for rejecting a lucrative offer to join a Saudi Arabian club this summer.

The South Korean forward expressed his preference to stay in the English Premier League, where he dreams of continuing his football career for several more years.

While several high-profile players have made the switch to the Saudi Professional League (SPL) in a notable exodus from the Premier League this summer, Son remains committed to playing in the English top flight.

In an interview with talkSPORT, Son stated,

“If I wanted to go there, I would not be here. I love playing football. Obviously, money is also important, but I dream of playing in the Premier League.”

Son acknowledged the current trend of players moving to the Middle East, finding it interesting. However, he emphasized that the Premier League remains his ultimate aspiration, emphasizing his love for the game and the significance of fulfilling his dreams in one of the most prestigious leagues in the world.

The South Korean international has been a key figure at Tottenham Hotspur since joining the club in 2015. Known for his exceptional skills, versatility, and goal-scoring ability, Son has become a fan favorite and an integral part of the team’s success.

Son’s decision to prioritize his ambitions in the Premier League over a potentially lucrative move to Saudi Arabia highlights his dedication to his craft and his desire to continue making a significant impact in one of the world’s most competitive football leagues.

As the new season approaches, fans eagerly anticipate witnessing Son’s continued performances and contributions to Tottenham’s success.

His commitment to the Premier League serves as a testament to the league’s global appeal and the allure it holds for both players and fans alike.
