Son Heung-min who is in position with Conte is eliminated from the FA Cup
Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham Hotspur) expressed his determination to play in the Champions League, reflecting on the pain of being eliminated from the FA Cup.
Tottenham will face AC Milan in the second leg of the round of 16 of the 2022-23 UEFA Champions League, which will kick off at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London on the 9th (Korea time).
Tottenham, which lost 0-1 in the first leg of the away match against Milan, Italy, must win the second leg at home by two goals to win a ticket to the quarterfinals. A draw is also a failure. AC Milan is not as strong as they were when they won the Serie A trophy last season, but it is expected to be a very difficult game for Tottenham, which has lost the first round.
Fortunately, coach Conte will also return. Conte, who left the team for about three weeks due to health problems, attended an official UEFA press conference alongside Son Heung-min.
Son Heung-min said, “I struggled with losing points early in the first game,” adding, “The second game with cool fans at home will be a different game,” adding, “It is really painful to be eliminated from the FA Cup. But the Champions League remains. This game could be a turning point. “I will pour everything out,” he said.
Tottenham’s recent mood is not very good. He lost to Sheffield United in the second division and was eliminated from the FA Cup, and also lost 0–1 to Wolverhampton in the EPL.
Son Heung-min, who became the EPL’s top scorer with 23 goals last season, has scored five goals (3 assists) in the EPL this season and two goals in the Champions League. He is physically exhausted due to an orbital fracture injury and the aftermath of his participation in the 2022 FIFA Qatar World Cup, and has not shown as sharp movements as last season 토토놀이터
While coach Conte was absent, he played as a substitute rather than a starter.
In response, Son Heung-min said, “Individual records are not that important. I hope the team wins and scores as many goals as possible,” he said. As for whether he will start against AC Milan, he said, “I don’t know. “The coach must have a good answer,” he said with a smile, “All players want to start, but in high-quality games, the players get tired in the second half and the flow changes.” I have to be ready all the time,” he said.
