Liverpool legend anger at Son Heungmin injury…
Liverpool legend Carragher blasted FIFA for concerns over Son Heung-min’s absence from the World Cup.
Son Heung-min started in the sixth Group D match of the 2022-23 UEFA Champions League against Marseille in Marseille, France, on the 2nd (Korea Standard Time), but was replaced due to injury in the 29th minute of the first half. Son Heung-min collapsed after being hit in the shoulder by Marseille defender Mbemba in the 23rd minute of the first half and was later replaced by Vissuma. Son Heung-min left the stadium amid concerns over injuries such as concussions and fractured cheekbones.
Liverpool legend commentator Carragher expressed concern about Son Heung-min’s injury through CBS Sports on the 2nd. “There are many reasons why it is shameful that the World Cup will be held in winter during the season,” Carragher said. “Everyone knows that corrupt Qatar has attracted the World Cup. The World Cup is held in the summer, but considering Qatar’s temperature, it is impossible to hold the World Cup in the summer. “I’m going to play the World Cup during the season,” he said.
In particular, “There are players around the world who dream of playing in the World Cup for the rest of their lives like Son Heung-min.” Varane cried as he left the ground against Chelsea, stressing, “There should be no situation where a player cannot play in the World Cup due to an injury that requires rehabilitation for 10 days or two weeks.”
Carragher, who expressed regret over Son Heung-min’s injury, played more than 500 games in the Premier League from 1996 to 2013, and played as a leading player in the 2004-05 UEFA Champions League. Carragher, who represented Liverpool during his active career, has been a commentator since retirement.
The British Metro said, “Son Heung-min has emerged as a player who could fail to participate in the World Cup due to an injury,” adding, “Manchester United’s French defender Varane had a crisis of missing the World Cup due to a hamstring injury.” Liverpool’s Portuguese striker Diogo Jota said, “He failed to play in the World Cup due to injury,” referring to players who are on the verge of missing the World Cup due to injury during the season.
Regarding Son Heung-min’s injury against Marseille, The Sun of England said, “Son Heung-min may have been more seriously injured than concussion.” He said, “If Son Heung-min has a concussion, he cannot play for at least six days under the rules of the English Football Association (FA).”
Chief coach Stellini, who defended Tottenham’s bench against Marseille instead of Conte due to UEFA disciplinary action, said, “We don’t know about Son Heung-min’s injury in the current situation. We have to wait until tomorrow for the medical staff’s judgment. Son Heung-min has improved. I saw Son Heung-min in the locker room. I celebrated the victory with my colleagues. I have to wait until tomorrow. Also, “It is not clear whether Son Heung-min has a concussion. He added, “I’m injured in my face and my eyes are swollen.”
