Reporter Kwak Him-chan = When English Premier League (EPL) legend Michael Owen praised Kaoru Mitoma (Brighton), the Japanese media made a fuss.
Japanese media ‘Soccer King’ reported on the 22nd (Korean time), “Owen, who played for Liverpool, Real Madrid and Manchester United, praised Japanese national team midfielder Mitoma.”
Mitoma has been active as a mainstay for Brighton this season. He serves as the starting point of the attack against Liverpool and also leads Brighton’s 3-0 victory, and is the most ‘hot’ midfielder recently. In recognition of these performances, it is also receiving good reviews locally, including being included in the EPL Round 20 Best 1111 selected by Alan Shearer.
Recently, he scored the opening goal against Leicester City and helped Brighton earn a point. Mitoma enjoyed the joy of being selected as MOM, recording the highest score of 9 on Sky Sports in the UK. Owen also gave a thumbs up to Mitoma’s performance. 스포츠토토
According to ‘Soccer King’, Owen praised through his Twitter, saying, “Today Mitoma scored a very nice goal. It should be said that it is the most valuable contract.” He added, “If Elling Hollan (Manchester City), who is running at the top of the EPL scoring list, is the best signing, then Mitoma is the best cost-effective signing in terms of money.”
