Tottenham star Son says he would trade Golden Boot for Champions League

Tottenham forward Son Heung-min says he would take qualifying for the Champions League over winning the Golden Boot.

The South Korean has scored 21 Premier League goals this season, with Liverpool’s Mohamad Salah currently leading the race with 22.

Tottenham are fifth in the league, just one point behind rivals Arsenal with two games remaining.

“It would be nice but for us it is important to finish in the top four,” the 29-year-old said.

Son scored his 21st goal in Spurs’ 3-0 thrashing of Arsenal in the North London derby on Thursday.

He has scored 10 goals in his last eight games, including a hat-trick against Aston Villa.

Asked if he would trade scoring more goals for a Champions League spot, Son said: “Yeah, 100%.

“Obviously it’s a good thing that you are racing, but I have said a few times that it is important to finish in the top four [more] than anything else.”

Spurs host Burnley on Sunday before ending their season at Norwich on 22 May.
