Son Heung-min and Kim Min-jae tied for the sixth spot on the list of the world’s best players.
On March 13 (KST), British media outlet 90min revealed the 25 best soccer players in the world as part of its “Welcome to World Class” series. In the list, which was divided into 25 players by position, Son Heung-min was ranked as a left winger and Kim Min-jae was ranked sixth as a center back.
Son is now in his eighth year in the Premier League. He joined Tottenham Hotspur in 2015 after making a name for himself in Germany. As he continued to grow, his form blossomed in 2021-22. His 23 goals that season tied him with Mohamed Salah for top scorer in the league and helped Spurs climb to fourth place in the standings. He and Harry Kane, now at Munich, have been dubbed the ‘Sonke Duo’ and have combined for 43 Premier League goals.
There are high hopes for this season. He takes over the captain’s armband from longtime Tottenham ace Hugo Lloris. He was the first non-European captain in Spurs’ history. With teammates James Maddison and Christian Romero as vice-captains, Spurs have a new captaincy. Son Heung-min, who had already provided leadership as captain of the South Korean national team, leads the team with seasoned experience and a unique affinity for the game.
Spurs have been hailed as a “resurgent Spurs” under manager Enze Postecoglou, who took over last summer. Spurs are currently cruising in second place in the league. After drawing with Brentford on the opening day of the season, they went on to beat Manchester United, Bournemouth, and Burnley in consecutive games to remain unbeaten. In the last game against Burnley, Son scored a hat trick, his fourth hat trick in the Premier League.
The publication said of Son, “Shortly after winning the Golden Boot, Heung-min suffered his worst season in 2022-23. The pain of injury can be incredibly frustrating, but Heung-min vowed to fight through it when he was named captain. He has long been a world-class player for Tottenham. There isn’t a goal he can’t score with both feet, and his partnership with Kane has helped him develop into a tremendous player. What he has brought to Tottenham, even when they were in a difficult situation, should not be forgotten at this stage of his career.”
Kim Min-jae was also ranked sixth in the center back category. “Fans across Europe have taken notice of Kim, who was a key part of Napoli’s defense that won the 2022-23 Scudetto. Bayern now have one of the best players in the world,” the publication said of Kim.
Recently named one of the top 30 candidates for the Ballon d’Or, Kim Min-jae is South Korea’s best central defender. His arrival from Fenerbahçe to Napoli was met with skepticism as his name was unfamiliar to Europeans at the time, but he proved to be a key part of Napoli’s first Serie A title in 33 years.
Over the summer, a number of big clubs were interested in Kim, with Manchester United being the most active, but Bayern Munich swooped in at the last minute. Kim chose Munich as his ‘home’ and confirmed his move to Germany for a transfer fee of €50 million. Since joining the club, Kim has started all three league games so far, and the Bavarians are sitting comfortably in second place with three straight wins.카지노사이트

Kylian Mbappe took the top spot in the Raftwing category. He was followed by Vinicius and Marcus Rashford in second and third place, respectively.
