Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham), who has become the new captain and is recognized by his teammates, is now challenging the team’s second consecutive win with a beastly goal this season.
Tottenham will play the third round of the 2023-2024 English Premier League (EPL) against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium in Bournemouth, England at 8:30 pm on the 26th. It is a game in which Son Heung-min is once again hunting for the first goal of the season.먹튀검증
Son Heung-min took over the captain’s armband from goalkeeper Hugo Lloris before the season. When Harry Kane (Bayern Munich), who was originally trying to take over the captaincy, transferred, Son Heung-min became the new leader of the team. Coach Enze Postecoglu, who took over as Tottenham’s new head coach, took over the captaincy without consulting Son Heung-min. It shows trust in Son Heung-min.
Now that he has played two games since the opening, ‘captain’ Son Heung-min is receiving good reviews from his teammates. Defender Mickey Van de Pen, who moved to Tottenham before the season, said, “Son Heung-min knows what message he is conveying. When he speaks out, the players start to listen. He is lovely off the pitch, but when he catches the ball, it changes.”
Coach Posteco Glu also said, “Son Heung-min, who is also the captain of the Korean national team, is a player who is respected by both his teammates and opponents. He trains hard every day and leads by example.”
What Son Heung-min needs now is a goal. Son Heung-min is Tottenham’s captain and striker who will be responsible for the team Kane left.
Son Heung-min played as a left-sided striker in both games after the opening. In the match against Brentford, he only scored two shots and was replaced in the second half because he did not perform well, such as overlapping the movement with Destiny Udogi, the left fullback.
While playing full-time, instead of leading the attack, he took on the role of a ‘helper’ and focused on creating chances for Hischarlisson in the front line and Dejan Kulusevski, who played as a striker on the right flank. Tottenham beat Manchester United 2-0 to claim their first win of the season.
Son Heung-min is the ‘Bournemouth Killer’. He scored 6 goals (2 assists) in 10 career games against Bournemouth. Even last season, which was the most sluggish after moving to Tottenham, he scored a goal in the last confrontation. Even in his objective power, Tottenham is far superior to Bournemouth.
Son Heung-min has scored 103 goals in his career in the EPL. He is tied for 32nd in EPL career goalscoring with Cristiano Ronaldo (Al Nasr). If you add one goal against Bournemouth, you will be tied for 31st with Didier Drogba, ahead of Ronaldo.
