Ahead of the Champions League match against AC Milan (Italy), Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham Hotspur) made up his mind to “pour and dedicate everything”.메이저사이트

At 5 am (Korean time) on the 9th at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England, Tottenham will play AC Milan in the second leg of the round of 16 of the 2022-2023 European Football Association (UEFA) Champions League (UCL).

Last month, Tottenham lost 0-1 in the first leg away from San Siro in Milan, Italy. At that time, Tottenham lost as it was silent after giving up the winning goal to Brahim Dias in the 7th minute of the first half.

At a press conference ahead of the match against AC Milan, Son Heung-min said, “Tomorrow is the most important game of the season. To make the fans, club, and ourselves proud, we have to give everything.”

He said, “We started sloppily in the first leg and conceded a goal early,” he said. “Another game will be played tomorrow. We play at home, with positive energy and great fans. We have to get better and have confidence.”

Son Heung-min, who recently went back and forth between selection and substitution, said, “I don’t know if he will start in the second game. You should ask the director about that. You must have a better answer than me.”

“Of course, every player wants to play as a starter. However, in most games, especially in high-level competitions like this, changes occur in the second half when everyone gets a little tired.” Soccer can be played for 90 or 120 minutes, and every moment can give an ‘impact’. Nothing changes because I am always ready to help the team.”

Son Heung-min said, “I do what the team needs. My personal stats don’t really matter. The most important thing is teamwork, team spirit and everyone coming together as one. Whatever the team wants, I will always be there. I want us to score a lot and win.”

Coach Antonio Conte, who was resting after undergoing surgery for cholecystitis, will return from the match against AC Milan, and Son Heung-min said, “Coach Conte’s return is very important. I’m happy that the coach is sitting next to me.” When the manager is on the touchline, the players will feel more comfortable, and he will give us incredible strength and energy.”

In the last 3 games, Son Heung-min is experiencing sluggishness, not only not scoring goals, but also failing to raise attack points, overshadowing the title of top scorer last season. Son Heung-min, who scored 23 goals last season and became joint top scorer with Mohamed Salah (Liverpool), is in contrast to his recent performance with Salah. Salah scored two goals and two assists in the match against Manchester United on the 6th and made a great contribution to a 7-0 victory.
