Sad and disappointing.”
Tottenham Hotspur striker Son Heung-min (31) of the English professional football Premier League (EPL) bowed his head due to sluggishness.
Tottenham lost 1-4 in an away game against Leicester City in the 23rd round of the 2022-2023 EPL held at King Power Stadium in Leicester, England on the 12th (hereinafter Korean time). It is a red flag for Tottenham, who was enjoying a winning streak and seeking 4th place in the league.
Heung-Min Son was the starting pitcher. There was hope that he would reproduce his memory of scoring a hat-trick in a direct confrontation with Leicester in this round. Although his performance has rebounded recently, his sense of goal is still not as good as in previous years. 먹튀검증
Son Heung-min, who showed light movements enough to become the league’s top scorer last season, is having a hard time this season. Fans are debating between ‘short sluggishness’ and ‘aging curve’. Before the game, Britain’s ‘Daily Mail’ pointed out that Son Heung-min maintained a dribble success rate of at least 50% from the 2017-2018 season, but only 36% this season. Although his teammates’ support has decreased compared to last season, he pointed out that individual performance has also declined.
Coincidentally, if you look at this Leicester game alone, the atmosphere is really close to the aging curve. A representative scene is the 8th minute in the second half. Son Heung-min intercepted the opponent’s mistake and penetrated into the box. In the past, Son Heung-min would have exchanged one-two passes with his teammates with his unique winding kick or quick timing, but he missed the timing on this day. Afterwards, he passed Kane, but the decision wasn’t good either.
The local media also did the same. England’s ‘Football London’ harshly criticized Son Heung-min, saying, “Heung-Min Son, who has shown good form in the last two games in a row, showed a scene of hesitation in his decision, such as not being able to beat the opponent’s defense.”
The player himself promised a rebound. Son Heung-min said, “It is very sad. I do not know what to say. “I have to learn (looking back at the defeat that day). It will be a big lesson for us.
