Tottenham Hotspur have really embraced the ‘Welsh Mafia’ this season.
At the end of last term, Ben Davies was the only Welsh international in the first-team squad, but he was joined by two pals.
Firstly, Tottenham brought Gareth Bale back to the club on loan for the season, luring him from Real Madrid in a huge deal.
Spurs then added another one as Joe Rodon came in from Swansea City back in October, bolstering Jose Mourinho’s defensive options.
The trio have formed ‘the Welsh mafia’, celebrating with hand gestures that show the letters W and M.
There has been a surprise addition though, as Son Heung-min has become involved in the celebrations despite being South Korean.
Son is often spotted celebrating with the Welsh Mafia gestures, as seen in the photo with Bale below.
Now, Rodon has admitted to The Mirror that he thinks Son is ‘the best guy ever’, so a non-Wales exception is made for him.
Rodon added that Bale is a ‘big kid’, and the group has been great to be a part of since joining forces at Tottenham.
“The main thing is you have to be Welsh but there is an exception for Sonny because he’s the best guy ever,” said Rodon. “Having Gareth and Ben is a great balance. Gareth is a big kid as well.”
“It escalated with the celebration but we’re all just very good friends. It’s a great group to be a part of,” he added.
