Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham), who has been sluggish this season, has accepted criticism towards himself. He also expressed his apologies to the fans and the club.
In an interview with the British Daily Mail on the 18th, Son Heung-min said, “I know the fans want more from me. I agree 100% with the criticism directed at me. I feel sorry for the team, the fans, and the club,” he said. We have to do well again.”
Son Heung-min scored 23 goals in the English Professional Football Premier League (EPL) last season, becoming the first Asian player to become the top scorer. However, he has only 4 goals and 3 assists in 21 games this season. He has scored 8 goals and 3 assists in 30 games, including cup competitions such as the UEFA Champions League.
It is also affected by surgery after suffering an orbital fracture injury during the UEFA Champions League group match against Marseille (France) in November last year. However, Son Heung-min said, “I don’t blame the injury. He was just very frustrated,” he said. “I have a chance to help the team, but I can’t do it as well as last season.” 슬롯사이트
As Son Heung-min fell into a slump, Tottenham was also pushed out of the league title competition. Newcastle United and Fulham are fighting for fourth place. The realistic goal is to finish in fourth place or higher, which will qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season. 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, “Since the coach had a hard time, we have to give something back. We have to come together as one in difficult times and show unity. That is the most important thing,” he stressed.
“The Premier League changed my life. “It’s a privilege to play here,” he said. “I’ve had unbelievably good seasons the past few years, but sometimes it’s tough. Hard times also make us stronger.”
