After Leicester’s ‘Horror Show’… Son Heung-min warns Tottenham
I paid attention to Son Heung-min’s interview in the UK.
Tottenham Hotspur lost 1-4 to Leicester City in the 23rd round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at King Power Stadium in Leicester, England at 0:00 am (Korean time) on the 12th. Tottenham, who did not win points, remained in 5th place in the league.
It is no exaggeration to say that the match against Leicester was the worst match Tottenham has played this season. Tottenham took the lead with Rodrigo Bentancur’s goal in the 14th minute of the first half, but soon allowed Leicester an equalizer and a come-from-behind goal. In the first half extra time, an extra goal was conceded, and the score was 1-3 in the first half only.
In the second half, nothing changed. Tottenham put weight on the attack through a replacement card, but there was no additional goal. Rather, he conceded a key goal to Harvey Barnes and tasted the humiliation of a crushing defeat with a disastrous score of 1-4. With consecutive victories against Fulham and Manchester City, Tottenham’s dream of winning three league victories in a row for the first time in the season was also dashed.
After the game, local media paid attention to Son Heung-min’s interview. Britain’s ’90min’ said, “After the horror show against Leicester City, Son Heung-min warned Tottenham. Son Heung-min learned lessons through the horror show held at Leicester ahead of Tottenham’s UEFA Champions League (UCL) match against AC Milan. He said that he had to gain and learn,” he said in Son Heung-min’s interview. 바카라
In an interview with the media after the match, Son Heung-min said: “I could talk all day here, but the important thing is on the pitch. With only a few days left before the game, we will focus on recovery and do everything to achieve our goal in the away game against Milan. I have to give it,” he said, adding that he should prepare well for the first leg of the round of 16 against Milan.
Heung-Min Son continued, “We learn more from bad matches than good matches. Our performance was really poor. The match against Milan will be an important match. This match (against Leicester) can teach us a big lesson. And this shouldn’t happen in Milan,” he said, saying that if something like the Leicester match is repeated, we can’t win.
Meanwhile, Tottenham are experiencing great difficulties in squad composition due to injuries to Rodrigo Bentancur, Yves Bisuma and Hugo Lloris. In particular, the biggest problem is the composition of the midfield union, which is scheduled to miss even Pierre-Emile Hoivier due to accumulated warnings.
