A couple of goals from Son Heung-min against Norwich City on Sunday helped Tottenham Hotspur win 5-0.
Tottenham knew one point would be enough to qualify for the Champions League.
But Antonio Conte’s side rocked into Carrow Road in a ruthless mood, opting to re-enter Europe’s elite competition rather than limp.
The South Korean scored a second-half brace to take his tally to 23 Premier League goals this season.
In so doing, Son finished the pinnacle of the Golden Boot race with Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, with both of them winning the award.
Nobody was happier for the Tottenham attacker than loanee Lilywhites goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini, who was photographed abusing his team-mate in the dressing room after the game.
Dele Alli, who left the north Londoners for Everton in January, said on Instagram he was “proud” of his former team-mate after the success, while Son himself admitted it He had fulfilled a childhood dream with the Golden Shoe.
As for Gollini, it’s nice to see the Italy reserve goalkeeper feeling so at ease with the rest of Conte’s squad, as evidenced by the way he celebrated those two Son Heung-min goals against Norwich.
The problem is that he is returning to Italy this summer.
Tuttomercatoweb reported earlier this month that Fabio Paratici – who brought him to north London – had planned talks with Gollini about re-signing the 27-year-old for next season.
However, Conte is now reported to have told the former Aston Villa stopper there is no place for him in his Tottenham squad.
During his loan spell this season he managed 10 appearances in all competitions but none came in the Premier League.
