Criticism toward Tottenham Hotspur Son Heung-min is growing.
Aston Villa legend Gabriel Agbonlaher appeared on the ‘Talk Sports’ broadcast on the 15th (Korean time) and insisted that Son Heung-min be seated on the bench.
“I think Tottenham need to get Son Heung-min back in shape,” Agbonlaher insisted. “Son Heung-min is not like Son Heung-min this season.”
Agbonlaher raised his voice saying that Son Heung-min should be given a break and that Arnaut Danjuma and Richarlisson should be guaranteed more playing time.
Agbonlaher advised Tottenham manager Antonio Conte: “Newly signed Danjumana Richarlison, who has yet to score in the Premier League this season, needs a chance.”
He went on to add, “We need a change of mood. We have to put Son Heung-min on the bench and write the Danjuma and Hisharli songs.”
Son Heung-min started in the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16 against AC Milan that day, but did not perform well.
Not only Son Heung-min, but also Harry Kane and Dejan Klusevski, the entire attacking line was tightly tied to AC Milan’s defense. At least Kane struggled to solve the game in the center, but it was not enough.
The arrow was focused on Son Heung-min, who had been sluggish throughout the season.
The British media ‘Mirror’ criticized 토토사이트Son Heung-min at the level of ridicule, saying, ‘Poor old Son Heung-min is 1 million miles away from his prime’.
HITC pointed out that Son Heung-min is incapable of breaking down the opponent’s defense with his personal skills, saying, ‘Son Heung-min confirmed again that he could not penetrate the opponent’s fullback.’
In the 2022-2023 season, there is only one game where Son Heung-min sits on the bench in the Premier League. It was against Leicester City on September 18 last year. Son Heung-min scored a hat-trick in this game as a substitute. Three of the four goals scored in the Premier League this season were scored on this day.
Another point to watch is how long Conte will trust Son Heung-min. Conte seems to think that Tottenham can go even higher only when Son Heung-min comes back to life. Conte has consistently used Son Heung-min as a starter no matter how slumped he is.
