Son Heung-min and Kim Min-jae ranked 6th among the best players in the world.
British media ’90min’ revealed the 25 best soccer players in the world selected in the ‘Welcome to World Class’ series on the 13th (Korean time). In the list of 25 players divided by position, Son Heung-min ranked 6th in the raft wing category and Kim Min-jae ranked 6th in the center back category.
Son Heung-min is already in his 8th year as a Premier League player. After making a mark on the German stage, he joined Tottenham Hotspur in 2015. As he continued to grow, his skills blossomed in the 2021-22 season. He was tied as the top scorer with Mohamed Salah with 23 goals in the season, and also played a major role in helping Tottenham, which had been sluggish, rise to 4th place. He is now called the ‘Sonke Duo’ with Harry Kane, who left for Munich, and has scored 43 goals together, the most goals in the Premier League.
Expectations for him this season are also high. He inherited the captain’s armband from Hugo Lloris, Tottenham’s longtime ace. He was the first non-European captain in Tottenham history. Tottenham formed a new team of captains as his colleagues James Maddison and Christian Romero became vice-captains. Son Heung-min, who has already demonstrated leadership as captain of the Korean national team, is leading the team with his expertise and unique friendliness.
They are being praised as a ‘resurrected Tottenham’ under coach Anger Postecoglou, who took office last summer. Tottenham is currently cruising in second place in the league. They drew with Brentford in the opening game, and have continued their undefeated streak with consecutive wins over Manchester United, Bournemouth, and Burnley.
The media said of Son Heung-min, “As soon as he won the Golden Boot, Son Heung-min suffered his worst season in the 2022-23 season. The pain of injury could have brought unbelievable frustration, but Son Heung-min was appointed captain and pledged to overcome it. He has been a world-class player for Tottenham for a long time. There is no goal he cannot score with both feet, and his partnership with Kane has helped him develop into a tremendous player. Even when Tottenham are in difficult situations, what Son Heung-min brings to his team is his He explained the reason for his selection by saying, “You shouldn’t be someone else in your career.”바카라
Kim Min-jae also ranked 6th in the center back category. The media explained about Minjae Kim, “Fans across Europe paid attention to Minjae Kim, the star of the Naples defense that won the 2022-23 Scudetto. Bayern now has one of the best players in the world.”
Kim Min-jae, who was recently named among the 30 Ballon d’Or candidates, is the best central defender in Korea. Kim Min-jae’s name, who headed to Naples via Fenerbahce, was unfamiliar to Europeans at the time, so there were doubts, but he was recognized as the key player for Napoli, which won Serie A for the first time in 33 years.
During the summer, several big clubs sent love calls to Kim Min-jae. Manchester United was particularly active, but Bayern Munich jumped in at the last minute. Kim Min-jae chose ‘Geoham’ Munich and confirmed his move to Germany with a transfer fee of 50 million euros (about 72 billion won). Kim Min-jae joined Munich and has appeared as a starter in all three league games played so far, and Munich is comfortably in second place with three consecutive wins.
Matthais de Ligt, competing in the same position as Minjae Kim, ranked 17th, and Dayot Upamecano ranked 23rd. Ruben Diaz took first place, followed by David Alaba and John Stones. Kylian Mbappe took first place in the raft wing category. Additionally, Vinicius and Marcus Rashford ranked second and third, respectively.
