Tottenham Hotspur star Son Heung-min is the face of South Korean football. However, the winger is 31 and only has a few years left in his prime years, so who is next in line?
Son eventually took the baton from Park Ji-sung, and who will take it from the Spurs winger? Well, all eyes are on Paris Saint-Germain’s Kang-in Lee to become the next face of South Korean football.
A Korea Herald reporter told French media outlet L’Equipe that now, with Lee at PSG, everyone in the country is really convinced that after Park and Son, he will be the next star of Korean football.
