“Conte was right” Son Heung-min-Without Kane, Tottenham is just ‘mid-level’

Director Antonio Conte is being re-evaluated.

Tottenham Hotspur lost 1-2 to Aston Villa in the 36th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Villa Park in Birmingham, England on the 13th at 11:00 pm (Korean time). Tottenham, who failed to score points, could not achieve their dream of advancing to the UEFA Champions League (UCL).

There was nowhere to delay any longer. Tottenham, who was confirmed to be unranked this season, needed a win in the remaining games even to advance to the UCL, which is the minimum goal. Of course, the situation was not good. Even if they won all their remaining three games, Tottenham had little chance of finishing fourth. Three wins are required to equal points with Manchester United, which is in fourth place, because Manchester United has three games left in the remaining schedule. ‘Third place’ Newcastle United could not be surpassed because they were so far apart on goal difference.

The opponent was formidable. It was a villa that was on the rise under manager Unai Emery. Under coach Steven Gerrard, they struggled in the relegation zone, but coach Emery took the baton and rose to the position of watching메이저사이트 the European competition. Although the flow was somewhat cut off with consecutive losses in the previous two games, it was still a tough team to deal with.

Against such Villa, Tottenham couldn’t help but struggle. Although they had a slight advantage in possession, they only shot 5 times in 90 minutes. Villa’s offside trap was not properly attacked, and the attack failed every time.

The result of the battle was defeat. Tottenham, who allowed Jacob Ramsey the lead in the 8th minute of the first half, gave up an additional goal to Douglas Lewis in the 27th minute of the second half. At the end of the second half, Harry Kane scored a goal from a penalty kick, but that was it.

As a result, Tottenham’s dream of advancing to the UCL collapsed. Looking at the current situation, it is unclear whether they will advance to the UEFA Europa League (UEL). This is because Brighton won 3-0 against Arsenal to move up to sixth place, overtaking Tottenham.

Tottenham, which is having its worst season, was criticized by the British media ‘Telegraph’. The media strongly criticized it with the title, “Director Conte was right. Tottenham will never change until Daniel Levy ends his excuses.”

Conte was re-evaluated. The media said, “Director Conte has received a lot of criticism for his tactical style, but even after entering Ryan Mason’s acting manager, Tottenham has not changed at all.” “Before leaving Tottenham, Conte criticized the attitude and spirit of the players and warned that if this trend continued, Tottenham would be fighting for 7th, 8th and even 10th place. And two months later, these words It has become a reality,” he added.

He even directly criticized Chairman Levy. ‘Telegraph’ argued, “Without Kane and Son Heung-min, Tottenham would have been only in the mid-table. If Levy does not stop making excuses regarding inside and outside the club, Tottenham will face the same problem no matter what manager comes.”
