This is the latest TOTTENHAM News with Son Heung-Min Couldn’t believe what happened to him after tying down with Salah to receive golden boot award.
Antonio Conte’s side won a Champions League spot away at Norwich City on Sunday, making it a memorable day for all Tottenham fans.
Spurs understood that with a two-point lead over Arsenal coming into the last day, a draw would be enough to win fourth place due to their superior goal difference.
Dejan Kulusevski converted from Rodrigo Bentancur’s assist to soothe any pre-match concerns in the Tottenham away end, before Harry Kane doubled the lead with a header in the 32nd minute.
After adding a third run on a Kulusevski screamer just after the hour mark, Son Heung-min got in on the act with a double to cap the 5-0 victory.
Going into the game one goal behind Mohamed Salah in the Premier League Golden Boot competition, things didn’t look to be going Spurs’ way after a string of wasted chances to open the second half.

Tottenham news: Son Couldn’t believe what happened after trying with Salah to receive Golden Boot award
After watching Tim Krul deny him, Son made no mistake with his third shot, finding the bottom corner before sprinting over to celebrate with the ecstatic away fans.
After curling in a superb shot that gave Krul no chance, he was one up on the Egyptian five minutes later. Son was once again carried aloft by his ecstatic teammates, this time with the prize firmly in his grasp.
Salah pulled level with Son six minutes from the finish after putting the Reds ahead, maybe assisted by Jurgen Klopp’s decision not to play his key man in their important championship match against Wolves.
With time running out, the couple were unable to add to their total, therefore they were forced to split the trophy after outstanding 2021/22 campaigns.
According to SportEarly prior of kick-off, Son had a Golden Boot award ready for him at Carrow Road in case he won. After celebrating with Tottenham fans after the game before returning to the locker room, Son reappeared soon after 6 p.m. for his trophy presentation.
Even though there were just a few people remaining inside Carrow Road, the 29-year-old was met with a standing ovation from a group of fans who had gathered near the tunnel.
It was a very lovely touch on what could have been a fairly subdued presentation considering the great majority had departed from the stadium, and one he appreciated as he waved and thanked the few onlookers.
When Son received his prize, a handful of away fans lingered inside rather than walking for the exit door, so his Tottenham cheer could be heard from the away end.

After Kane’s late double in East Anglia, the trophy will remain at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for another 12 months after Kane got hold of it a year ago.
Conte was questioned about Son again in his pre-match press conference, this time questioning whether he would be on penalty duty at Norwich with the award on the line.
While the South Korean international will take home the prize after scoring 23 league goals, the manager stressed the significance of the squad in assisting his man to victory.
“But you’re perfectly aware of what I stated in my news conference. I said okay, but first and foremost, we need to qualify for the Champions League, and if there is any way to assist Sonny in being the league’s top scorer, we would be overjoyed. He also scored twice and had the opportunity to score more “described the Italian.
At the same time, I want to emphasize the tremendous work the team put in for Sonny. Seeing this, I was impressed by the team’s willingness and ambition to assist him in becoming the top scorer.
“It indicates that the dressing room has a pleasant ambiance. It implies that the players are not just terrific players, but also nice people.
We did well tonight to meet these two objectives: qualifying for the Champions League and Sonny winning the Golden Boot.”
Son, and Kane for that matter, might score for fun again next season with Conte’s club after scoring 12 goals in his final 10 league matches for Tottenham, tying Salah for the season’s most goals with 23.
In a year’s time, might the Premier League Golden Boot return to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium? You wouldn’t rule it out completely.
