Meet Son Heung-min, The Greatest Asian Soccer Player of Our Time

The rise of Son Heung-min in 2018-2019 has been nothing short of scintillating.

A goal-scoring machine with wicked pace and a deft touch, the South Korean winger has soared above expectations for Tottenham Hotspur this season. He’s led his injury-ravaged side to both a third place standing in the English Premier League (as of this writing) and a UEFA Champions League semi-final berth (farther than his team has ever made it in the tournament), accomplishments that have earned him a London Premier League Player of the Year award — as well as the now incontrovertible distinction of being amongst the very best in the world.

Korean Pro Footballer Harassed By Racist Fan in the U.K.

South Korean footballer Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur was lambasted with a tirade of racially-demeaning insults by a racist man who identified as a West Ham fan. Video of the man’s verbal assault was circulated on social media and has angered both Son’s team as well as West Ham United.

In the video, the man was heard yelling, “Can you get us a new copy of the new ‘Planet of The Apes’ film?” from a nearby car while pointing a camera straight at Son’s vehicle. Another fan was seen approaching Son’s vehicle to take his autograph but the verbally abusive man continued his insults and persistently told the South Korean footballer “you do DVD’s.”
