South Korean Heung-min Son has revealed why he turned down a lucrative job offer in Saudi Arabia this summer.
The Tottenham Hotspur attacker stated that he would love to remain in the English Premier League, where he hopes to play for a few more years.
The Premier League has lost a number of high-profile players to the SPL this summer, but Son still wants to play in England’s top flight.
According to talkSPORT, son stated:
“I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t want to go there.” Football is my favorite sport. Obviously, money is essential, but I want to play in the Premier League.”
He found it intriguing that most people are already relocating to the Middle East, but he noted that playing in the Premier League remains an ambition for him.
