Son Heung-min, who has a particularly difficult season, “I agree 100% with the criticism… I’m sorry”

Son Heung-min (30, Tottenham Hotspur), who is having a hard time this season as the toxic sluggishness has been prolonged, said he humbly accepts criticism. At the same time, he also conveyed his sincere heart that he was sorry to the club and fans.

Son Heung-min said in an exclusive interview with the British media ‘Daily Mail’ on the 18th (Korean time), “I know that the fans want more from me. I agree 100% with the criticism towards me. I feel sorry for the club and the fans.” After honestly confessing, “I think the expectations are bound to be high as we have done well over the past few years. We have to overcome it well like before.”

This season, Son Heung-min, unlike his previous years, has not been able to break away from the toxic sluggishness. In fact, he only scored 4 goals and 3 assists while playing 21 games in the English Premier League (EPL). Considering that he was the first EPL scorer in Asia last season, this is a difficult result to understand.

Even in all competitions, including the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) and the English Football Association (FA), Son Heung-min is recording 8 goals and 3 assists in 30 official matches. He has yet to break through double digits in scoring. The scoring pace has dropped noticeably.

Of course, Son Heung-min underwent surgery due to an orbital fracture in November last year, and his sense of game and condition fell for a while. In the meantime, he showed his fighting spirit from injury and took the lead in advancing to the round of 16 for the second time in history by forcing himself to participate in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Son Heung-min, however, said, “I don’t blame the injury. I’m just very frustrated.” “Always looking back at the game and trying to improve, analyzing what we can do better. The past few years have been incredibly good, but sometimes the hard times make us stronger. We are working in a positive direction,” he added. 스포츠토토

Tottenham had a good pace at the beginning of this season, but as time went on they fell out of the title race. It is also behind the competition for the top four. To make matters worse, coach Antonio Conte (53, Italy) is currently taking a break in Italy due to gallbladder removal surgery, so it is unknown when he will return.

Son Heung-min said, “(Coach Conte) personally had a difficult time, so the players have to reciprocate. I always want to do my best.” It’s first. That will be the most important.”
