Son Heung-Min impressed the world with his stunning solo goal against Burnley in Tottenham’s 5-0 demolishing at home.

The great atmosphere is thriving since Mourinho arrived, and Son’s goal just boosted it.

Everyone was stunned by what the South-Korean did when he scored the Spurs’ third goal of the match.

Mourinho is one of the impressed ones, as he noted after the match.

“Even before the goal, my son calls him Sonaldo after Ronaldo Luís Nazário,” he said, as quoted by Football London.

He went as far as comparing Son’s goal to Ronaldo’s legendary one in 1996.

“The only thing that comes to my mind is the goal when I had the honour of being next to Sir Bobby Robson in 1996 when Ronaldo scored.”

Good spirits prevail as Tottenham are nearing the Champions League spots in the Premier League.
