He finally decided new team.
Bayer Leverkusen announced new scout that the team contracted with Son Heung-min for five years in 13th June 2013. And Leverkusen payed 1000 euros atransfer fee to Hamburg. Son Heung-min hereby was Leverkusen's player.
Leverkusen has intermarried with Korea. 'Cha Boom' Cha bum-gun has played for 6 years.(He retired in 1989 at Leverkusen) Cha transferred team from Eintracht Frankfurt to Bayer Leverkusen in 1983. And his son Cha Du-ri contracted Leverkusen in 2002.(As soon as he contracted Leverkusen he was lented Arminia-Bielefeld. So he played any game by Leverkusen's player.)
Especially, Cha Bum-gun recorded 52 goals by Leverkusen's player for 6 years and conduced UEFA Cup(It is ex name of Europa League) Champion in 1987-88 season. It is only Champion trophy of European club competition. Cha recorded 3rd goal of 2nd game of 1987-88 season UEFA Cup final. (At that time, Leverkusen lost 0-3 first game to Español, and leaded 3-0 within 90 minutes. So Champion was decided to penalty shoot out. Leverkusen won 3-2 by penalty shoot out.)
Now Leverkusen's fans are remembered Cha Bum-gun as legend because of remarkable activities for 6 year. It is seen that his photos are hung at anywhere of Leverkusen.
After 30 years when Cha Bum-gun contracted with Leverkusen, Son Heung-min contracted Leverkusen who passed similar process as Cha Bum-gun. Then, Why does Leverkusen choose Son?
Most important thing is his qualified ability in Bundes Liga. Son Heung-min has recorded 20 goals for 3 years in Hamburg. Especially, he recorded 12 goals in 2012-13 season in Hamburg. Because this ability, he received love call from many European big club.
But this thing does not explain to reason of his contract perfectly. So I can find other thing. Other thing is that Leverkusen's star player Andre Schurrle contracted with Eng lish Premier League club Chelsea in 6th June in 2013. Schurrle's transfer had left a vacuum in Leverkusen's striker and Leverkusen payed attention to Son.
Leverkusen also qualified 2013-14 season EUFA Champions League Group Stage as result of 3rd place of 2012-13 season Bundes Liga. It is very important thing of Son.
Last season, We felt nostalgia of Cha Bum-gun from Son because he recorded 12 goals in Hamburg. Son Heung-min contracted with Leverkusen that Leverkusen's fans are remembered Cha Bum-gun as legend. Son's transfer, he contracted with Lverkusen will vibrate with joy. On the other hand, he will feel uncomfortable that he will show remarkable activities like Cha Bum-gun.
However Son Heung-min is 21 years old. he is young. So We want to show remarkable activities like Cha Bum-gun.
