Can Heung-Min Son (31, Tottenham) stand shoulder to shoulder with Cristiano Ronaldo (38, Al Nasr), whom he chose as his idol? Jurgen Klinsmann (59), coach of the national soccer team, is also cheering.
Tottenham Hotspur will face Bournemouth in Round 31 of the 2022-2023 Premier League (PL) held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England at 11:00 pm on the 15th (hereinafter Korean time). Currently, Tottenham is 5th with 56 points (17 wins, 5 draws, 7 losses), and Bournemouth is 15th with 30 points (8 wins, 6 draws, 16 losses).
Tottenham, who dreams of entering 4th place, needs 3 points. Currently, the difference between Manchester United (56 points), which has played one less game in 4th place, is 3 points. In order to win the right to advance to the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League, it is no longer possible to slip.
Son Heung-min’s toes should explode once again. Although he has been slowing down with 7 league goals this season, he improved his condition by scoring with a fantastic kick from the so-called ‘Son Heung-min zone’ against Brighton on the 8th. At the same time, he became the first Asian player to score 100 PL goals, setting a record메이저사이트.
Now, Son Heung-min is trying to score double digits in the league for 7 consecutive seasons. He has scored more than 10 league goals since the 2016-2017 season without missing a single one. In his last season, he scored a whopping 23 goals and became the top scorer. He still has 3 goals left, but the chances are good as he has 8 games waiting, including the match against Bournemouth.
In particular, Son Heung-min is expected more because he showed a strong side by participating in 9 games against Bournemouth and recording 5 goals and 2 assists. As much as he is good at driving, the possibility of scoring 10 goals with one hat-trick cannot be ruled out. If Son Heung-min adds 3 goals on this day, he will stand shoulder to shoulder with Ronaldo, who scored 103 goals in the PL career.
A special guest appears to help Son Heung-min. That’s director Klinsman. Starting with captain Son Heung-min, he is scheduled to watch the matches of European faction Oh Hyun-kyu (Celtic), Kim Min-jae (Napoli), Lee Jae-seong (Mainz), and Jung Woo-young (Freiburg) in turn.
Manager Klinsman is also a Tottenham legend, so he plans to have a meeting with the Tottenham club. He was short-lived at Tottenham in the past, but played twice (1994-1995 season, 1997-1998 season), scoring 30 goals in 56 games. In particular, in the 1997-1998 season, he joined in the middle of the season and prevented relegation from the second division, becoming a club legend.’
Meanwhile, acting coach Christian Stellini also announced that he would use Son Heung-min more aggressively. He said ahead of the game, “Son Heung-min needs to find space like he did well in the last game, but it’s not something we can fully control,” he said. “We try to give him as much space as possible.”
Will Son Heung-min be able to show the power of ‘Son Heung-min Zone’ in front of the senior coach Klinsman? It is a game that depends on a lot, from the team’s hopes for fourth place to the possibility of scoring double-digit points for seven consecutive seasons.
