Less than a fortnight into the job and Jose Mourinho is in love with Heung-Min Son.
Sonny’s performances both here and for South Korea have been recognised again by the Asian Football Confederation who named him Asian International Player of the Year for a record third time on Monday.
Always such a positive force around the Club, always smiling, Sonny scored the first goal and set up the second under Jose’s stewardship in the 3-2 win at West Ham on 23 November, assisted another in the 4-2 win against Olympiacos and then provided another two assists in our 3-2 win against Bournemouth on Saturday. He’s scored 19 goals for us so far in 2019.
“I want to congratulate Sonny, Asian (International) Player of the Year, fantastic, amazing, deserved,” said Jose ahead of training on Tuesday.
“I’m in love with him and I’m here for how many days? 10, 12? I imagine the people who have worked with him for years and everyone in this Club is so happy and so proud of Sonny.”
