Tottenham Hotspur fans raised their hands to Harry Kane instead of Son Heung-min. Kane has been named the Tottenham Fans’ Player of the Year.
England’s ‘Football London’ reported on the 19th (Korean time), “After a very impressive year at the club, Kane was selected as the 2022 Tottenham Fans’ Footballer of the Year.”
For Kane, this year will be memorable. Kane, who had been sluggish until the first half of the 2021-22 season, began to score excellent goals from the second half. Kane’s performance allowed Tottenham to finish fourth in the English Premier League (EPL).
The new season is showing an unprecedented pace. Contrary to his usual nickname of ‘slow starter’, he has scored 12 goals in 15 games this season, unlike his slow start in the top scorer race. Although it is second in scoring behind Elling Haaland (18 goals), it is a great performance. As such, Kane has played a pivotal role at Tottenham once again this season.
Tottenham fans were moved by this performance. He was selected as the final winner in the Tottenham Player of the Year voting selected by the fans. Kane took first place with a total approval rating of 36%, beating Rodrigo Bentancur (27%), Dejan Kulusevski (26%) and Pierre-Emile Hoivier (11%).
Unfortunately, Son Heung-min was also excluded from the rankings. Son Heung-min showed off the best condition of his career, scoring 23 goals in the 2021-22 season and winning the EPL top scorer. However, due to the sudden slump in the 2022-23 season, he has not been able to escape his goal drought so far. He is looking for a turnaround since the EPL resumed, with a hat-trick he scored against Leicester City but not scoring a single goal in another game.토토
Still, he was nominated for the final 9 players in the entire EPL. Newcastle United’s Bruno Guimaraes was selected in the 2022 EPL Player of the Year fan vote, which included Kane and Son Heung-min. After joining the winter transfer market in the 2021-22 season, Guimaraes made a huge impact, receiving more than 32,000 votes (27%) and becoming the final winner.
