Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham) could not avoid harsh criticism.
Tottenham lost 1-4 in an away game in the 23rd round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at King Power Stadium in Leicester, England at midnight (Korean time) on the 12th.
Son Heung-min, who started as a left wing forward on this day, did not perform well. He played full-time but only hit one shot. 안전놀이터
Football London, a British media, gave a rating of 4, saying, “Son Heung-min, who showed good performance in the last two games in a row, showed hesitation on this day.”
A scene that could change the atmosphere once came to Son Heung-min. Son Heung-min intercepted the ball without missing a pass miss by the Leicester defense in the 9th minute of the second half. Son Heung-min dragged a defender around and tried to hit a shot, but missed the timing and eventually passed it to Kane, who was next to him. He had the timing to hit the shot, but hesitated. As a result, Kane’s position was offside.
In the end, Son Heung-min played for 90 minutes and recorded one shot. He even came out at the end of the second half and missed his goal by a large amount. The key pass, which usually stood out within the team, did not come out that day. The pass success rate (70.6%) also dropped significantly.
