Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham),온라인카지노 who has been sluggish this season, has accepted criticism towards himself. He also expressed his apologies to the fans and the club.
In an exclusive interview published by the British Daily Mail on the 18th (Korean time), Son Heung-min said, “I know that the fans want more from me, and I do too. “I feel it,” he said, “as much as I’ve done well over the past few years, I can’t help but have high expectations. I have to do it again.”
Son Heung-min scored 23 goals in the English Professional Football Premier League (EPL) last season in the 2021-22 season, becoming Asia’s first EPL scorer. However, after only one season, his performance plummeted. He only scored 4 goals and 3 assists in 21 EPL games in the 2022-23 season. Even including cup competitions such as the UEFA Champions League, he scored 8 goals and 3 assists in 30 official games.
In November of last year, he suffered an orbital fracture during the UEFA Champions League group match against Marseille (France) and even underwent surgery. However, Son Heung-min gave a cold evaluation of his performance. “I don’t blame the injury. I’m just very frustrated,” he said. “I have a chance to help the team, but I can’t do it as well as last season.”
With Son Heung-min sluggish, the team is also having a difficult season. Tottenham is currently 5th in the EPL (39 points). The goal is to leapfrog above the 4th place, where the qualification for the UEFA Champions League is given next season. The gap with 4th place Newcastle United (41 points) is 2 points. To make matters worse, Tottenham manager Antonio Conte will be away for a while to recover from cholecystitis surgery. The revival of Son Heung-min, the main gun, is an urgent situation. Son Heung-min said, “We need faith. We have experienced this before.”
“The coach has been having a hard time personally, so we have to give something back. He gave me everything, and I want to give everything back too. I always want to give my best,” he said. “We have a good squad, so it’s difficult We have to come together as one and show unity at the right time. That is the most important thing,” he emphasized.
Son Heung-min wore a Tottenham uniform in 2015. He has risen to the ranks of world-class strikers in the EPL. Son Heung-min said, “This league has changed my life. It’s a privilege to play here,” and said, “Sometimes it’s unbelievable that I’m living that dream.” “I always look back at my games and try to improve and see what I can do better. The past few years have been incredibly good, but sometimes the hard times make us stronger. Now “I’m trying to speak positively,” he said.
Son Heung-min also talked about the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, where he participated wearing a face shield. “Honestly, I wasn’t 100 percent fit to play in the World Cup,” he said. “But I’ve been captain of the national team for five years and I’ve played all the qualifiers with my teammates, so missing the chance would have been a nightmare. They need me.” “I thought I would do everything,” he said.
