Seventh consecutive year, winning the Ballon d'Or

Tottenham Hotspur said on the 17th (Korea time), "Son Heung-min won the Best Footballer in Asia award, beating Kim Min-jae and Cristiano Ronaldo."

Asia, a best footballer also called the Asian Ballon d'Or, is an annual award given by the Chinese media "Titan Sports," and players from Asian nationalities and other continents who play in Asian leagues will be eligible.

Therefore, players such as Ronaldo and Karim Benzema, who play in Saudi Arabia's professional league, also competed in this award.

"Son Heung-min has been named the best player in Asia for the seventh consecutive year. In this poll, Son received 22.9 percent of the votes, beating Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), who came in second with 19.54 percent, and Ronaldo (Al-Nasr), who came in third with 17.06 percent. This is Son's seventh consecutive award and ninth in his career," Tottenham said.

"Son Heung-min has had an unforgettable year in 2023. Our No. 7 team, which led Korea to the round of 16 at the World Cup in Qatar last winter, made the Premier League's "100 Club" and scored the 150th goal for Tottenham. He also became our captain," the club said, announcing Son's club achievements.

Tottenham said, "After a difficult time in 2022, Son Heung-min started to regain his form by scoring nine goals in the second half of the season and became the first Asian player to score his 100th Premier League goal with a goal against Brighton and Hove Albion in March."

"Son Heung-min was appointed as the first team captain by new coach Enzi Postecoglou and scored a hat-trick in an away match at Burnley in September. He also scored his 150th goal at the match against Arsenal," the club said, announcing Son's achievement.

Tottenham said, "Sonny has continued his scoring streak with 12 goals and five assists in 20 league appearances this season. Currently, he has 157 goals in his career for Tottenham, the fifth-highest total in history. He also ranks 23rd with 115 goals in the Premier League, the most ever scored."

The club added, "Son Heung-min is currently serving as the South Korean representative at the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup Qatar 2023."
