After the top scorer… Heung-Min Son returns to Korea at the end of the season of ‘Blue Manchuria’ amid bad news and slopes

After last season, when he became the top scorer in the English Professional Football Premier League (EPL), Son Heung-min (Tottenham) returned to Korea after another eventful season with unexpected bad news and ups and downs. .

Son Heung-min returned home through Incheon International Airport on the afternoon of the 30th.

Son Heung-min, wearing a checkered short-sleeved polo shirt unique to Burberry, a brand he serves as a global ambassador (public relations ambassador), appeared at the arrival hall with a smile on his face and about 200 people including reporters and fans.

Son Heung-min, who waved his hands and greeted the fans, bowed his head in all directions as he headed for the airport exit, expressing his gratitude.

With shouts such as “Son Heung-min is cool” erupted from fans, Son Heung-min, who exited the arrivals hall, immediately boarded the prepared vehicle.

Son Heung-min, who stayed in the car for a few minutes without leaving the airport, came out for a while and did not forget the ‘fan service’ by shining his face in front of the remaining fans and greeting them repeatedly.

The EPL round 38 match against Leeds United, which Tottenham won 4-1 on the 29th, was Son Heung-min’s last official match of the 2022-2023 season.

Son Heung-min, who started as a starter and assisted Harry Kane’s goal in the 2nd minute of the game, ended his turbulent season by leaving the ground as a substitute for Hischarlisson in the 31st minute of the second half.

Son Heung-min, who became the first Asian player in the 2021-2022 season to become the first EPL scorer and proudly returned home with the ‘Golden Boot’ trophy, had a curve this season.

The total number of goals scored in the official match last season was 24, but this season it has been reduced to 14 goals. He recorded 6 assists and achieved 20 offensive points (14 goals and 6 assists) for the entire season.

Son Heung-min, who had been silent for a while after the opening of the season, was awakening his sense of scoring starting with a hat-trick against Leicester City in the 8th round, but he was hit with a big bad news when the opening of the FIFA World Cup in Qatar was less than three weeks away.

In early November of last year, he was diagnosed with an orbital fracture due to a collision with an opponent during the group stage match of the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) and was put on the operating table.

Heung-Min Son was impressed by his participation in the World Cup wearing a face shield and contributing to the national team’s advance to the round of 16.

At this time, Son Heung-min, who returned to England after being praised by the British BBC as a ‘superhero who transcended football in Korea’ for his ‘fighting spirit’, faced confusion inside his team, Tottenham.

With the dismissal of head coach Christian Stellini, who took over after the sacking of manager Antonio Conte at the end of March, Tottenham’s ranking, which was in the fourth place, fell to eighth, making it impossible to participate in the European club competition next season.

In the second half of Tottenham’s ups and downs, Son Heung-min also came as a player.

On the 8th of last month, in the 30th round (2-1 win) against Brighton, he set a milestone of his 100th EPL goal.

It is a record that only 34 players have achieved throughout EPL history, and it is the first Asian player.

He scored double-digit points in the league for seven consecutive seasons, proving that he was a ‘steady goal scorer’ like Wayne Rooney (Manchester United, season 11) and Sergio Aguero (Manchester City, season 9, retiring).

Now, Son Heung-min’s eyes are on the national team.먹튀검증

Son Heung-min, the “longest-serving captain in history,” who received the captaincy under Jurgen Klinsmann’s coaching system, prepares for the call for an A-match (match between national teams) in June while resting in Korea.

Klinsman, scheduled to be summoned on the 12th, will play domestic evaluation matches against Peru on the 16th and El Salvador on the 20th.
