Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur has been named the Premier League Player of the month for September by WhoScored.com.
The website, which collects statistics on English, French, German, Italian and Spanish leagues, said Monday that Son finished as the highest rated player in England's top-tier with a score of 8.1 out of 10, commenting "September was a sensational month for Son."
Son scored four goals and registered one assist in three league games in September. His team won all the games of the month, ranking second in the league with 17 points.
Former national football manager Guus Hiddink also picked Son as one of the top Korean players following Park Ji-sung.
In an interview on Tuesday Hiddink said Son is now "leading" the premier league. He had watched with interest Son playing while he was in Chelsea and could see he has become a great player.
The Dutch coach is in Korea now to attend the opening of a futsal field funded by him and other former footballers he coached in the 2002 World Cup.
