Son Heung-min (Tottenham), who received thorough left-footed instruction from his father Son Woong-jung, also wrote a new Premier League history.
On the 12th (Korean time), the Premier League Secretariat posted a picture on the official SNS, writing, “Yakbal? No problem!”
In the photo, the five players who scored the most goals with the opposite foot in Premier League history are listed in order.
Son Heung-min and Harry Kane, members of Tottenham’s so-called ‘Sonke Duo’, tied for first place.
Both Son Heung-min and Kane, whose main foot is right-footed, have scored 40 goals with their left foot in the league so far.
He became the most successful player in Premier League history with a weak foot.
The dignity of Son Heung-min and Kane can be felt better through the players pursuing them.
The first player to score 39 goals and rise to third place with a difference of one goal is none other than Dutch legend Robin van Persie. 온라인바카라
Van Persie, who played for Arsenal and Manchester United in the past, scored a lot of goals with weak feet as a former Premier League scorer, but as a retired player, he cannot break the Sonke duo’s record.
4th place Romelu Lukaku (34 goals) is an active player unlike Van Persie, but he is currently playing for Inter Milan in Serie A while having a big conflict with his original team, Chelsea.
In fifth place is Leicester City legend Jamie Vardy (32 goals).
Vardy, who was born in 1987 and is 36 years old, has not overcome the passage of time and scored only one goal in the league this season, and his active retirement is not far away.
It is estimated that the two players will fiercely compete for the sole top spot, as the contenders who can break the record written by Son Heung-min and Kane are already retired or likely to leave the Premier League soon.
The education of his father, Son Woong-jung, is indispensable to the background in which Son Heung-min became the player who scored the most goals with his weak foot in the history of the Premier League.
Son Woong-jung appeared on tvN’s ‘You Quiz on the Block’, which aired last month, and said, “When I wash my feet, I start with my left foot, and when I put on socks or kick a ball, I have them start with my left foot. I made them use their left foot 1.5 times more when practicing shooting.” Son Heung-min told an anecdote about how he wanted to use his left foot as skillfully as his right foot.
Son Heung-min, who faithfully followed his father’s education, became a world-class two-footed striker while engraving his name in the history of the Premier League.
