Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham), the ace of the Korean national soccer team, was selected as Asia’s best soccer player by Chinese sports media for six consecutive years.
China’s Titan Zhou Bao (English name Titan Sports) announced on the 6th that Son Heung-min was selected as the winner of the ‘2022 Asian Golden Globe Awards’.
With this, Son Heung-min has won the award for six consecutive years since 2017. He previously won awards in 2014 and 15 as well. Since 2013, when the award was first established, 10 winners have been announced. Among them, Son Heung-min swept the award eight times. In 2013, when Son Heung-min did not receive the award, Keisuke Honda (Japan) and Shinji Okazaki (Japan) won the award in 2016.
This award was established in 2013 by Titan Zhoubo based on the Ballon d’Or, which is awarded to the best soccer player of the year by the French media, France Football. It is awarded to players who are active in countries or teams belonging to the Asian Football Confederation (AFC). Asian football reporters and soccer experts vote on the 1st to 5th ranking (6 points for 1st, 4 points for 2nd, 3 points for 3rd, 2 points for 4th, 1 point for 5th) to determine the winner. 슬롯사이트
