Many words came out about Son Heung-min’s sluggish performance, but it was confirmed that the biggest problem was former coach Conte’s ‘how to use Son Heung-min’.

Son Heung-min proved the destructive power of the scorer by scoring the 8th goal in the English Premier League (EPL).

Son Heung-min scored the opening goal in the 14th minute of the first half in a home game against Bournemouth in the 31st round of the 2022-2023 EPL held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 15th.

It was the first two goals scored this season. 카지노It is the first time that Son Heung-min scored in two consecutive games, not only in the league, but also in the entire official schedule.

Son Heung-min also scored in the match against Brighton in the 30th round earlier, becoming the first Asian player to score his 100th personal EPL goal.

Son Heung-min, who had not recovered his skills in the first half, began his goal march at an important moment when the team’s fight for the top 4 was fierce.

Son Heung-min only scored 3 goals in the first half. He scored a hat-trick against Leicester City in just one match in the 8th round, then fell into a long goal silence.

It was a poor report card compared to last season, when he scored 22 goals and became the joint top scorer.

On November 1 last year, it was fatal to suffer an orbital fracture injury in a match between Marseille (France) and the European Football Association (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) group stage.

He entered the World Cup in Qatar with an imperfect body and led Korea to the round of 16. He did not have time to recover.

Some pointed out that Conte’s tactics this season did not properly utilize Son Heung-min’s talent.

Son Heung-min’s long-term skill is an elaborate shooting that shoots freely from left to right in the so-called ‘Son Heung-min Zone’ near the box.

However, former manager Conte took down Son Heung-min and even erased the burden of defense.

He was more of a midfielder rather than an attacker.

Conte’s favorite pupil, left wingback Perisic, entered Son Heung-min’s territory and was confused by overlapping traffic lines.

Son Heung-min began to revive as manager Conte was sacked and acting manager Christian Stellini took over the helm.

He reduced his defensive burden and scored a goal against Brighton with his original attacking moves.

He was helped by Perishi Chi, who was considered an ‘uncomfortable cohabitant’.

Acting coach Stellini predicted a full-fledged change ahead of the match against Bournemouth.

He emphasized at a press conference held the day before the game, “We have to play attacking football.”

He said, “We need to understand the characteristics of the players to maximize their abilities. We have to do it like Son Heung-min showed against Brighton.”

In the match against Bournemouth, Son Heung-min was deployed as a left striker as usual. As in the past, he was virtually two-top with Kane

Son Heung-min, who showed sharp movements from the beginning, shook the net with a left-footed shot at the cutback that Perisic broke through and passed the left side in a counterattack situation.

And he smiled brightly and held a ‘click’ ceremony.

Perisic, who only seemed to be incompatible with Son Heung-min, assisted Son Heung-min’s goal in two consecutive games and was reborn as a ‘good neighbor’.

In the end, it was right to trust and entrust Son Heung-min to the role he was originally good at.

In other words, former coach Conte’s clumsy tactics reduced the ability of not only the players but also the team.

Tottenham is recovering its offensive power with the change in Son Heung-min’s position and role.

Tottenham’s defense ended up losing 2-3 that day.

It remains to be seen whether Tottenham can stabilize the defense and win a ticket to the UEFA Champions League (UCL), which is given up to 4th place.

Tottenham are currently in 5th place (53 points), 3 points behind 4th place Manchester United.
