Son Heung Min won the Best Player award in Asia 2023

Thus, despite playing brilliantly in the Al Nassr shirt in 2023, Ronaldo still could not win. The Portuguese scored 54 goals in the last calendar year, making him the world’s top scorer at professional level. He scored 44 goals for Al Nassr Club in Saudi Arabia, along with 10 goals for the Portuguese national team in the EURO 2024 qualifiers.

However, Asian experts assess that the achievements Son Heung Min achieved at Tottenham and the English Premier League are much more difficult than what Ronaldo achieved in Saudi Arabia. In the 2022/23 season, Son Heung Min only scored 10 goals in the Premier League.

However, since Harry Kane left, the Korean star has shined as a leader in the North London team’s attack. To date, Son Heung Min has scored 12 goals in 20 matches in the new Premier League season. Thanks to that, he had an impressive breakthrough to win the title of Best Player in Asia in 2023.

The Asian Footballer of the Year award is open to any player representing a country affiliated with the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) or playing for a team under the jurisdiction of the AFC. In the past year or so, the Saudi Pro League has welcomed a series of “blockbusters”, starting with Cristiano Ronaldo, followed by Karim Benzema, N’Golo Kante, Sadio Mane, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic… However, All were unable to “overthrow” Son Heung Min’s empire.
