A re-evaluation of Son Heung-min is being made. It is argued that Antonio Conte’s tactics have put Son Heung-min into a slump this season.
England’s ‘Boot Room’ said on the 3rd (Korean time), “Last March, Tottenham Hotspur sacked coach Conte, but failed to achieve a turnaround. However, Son Heung-min regained form close to the peak. He scored 4 goals in 5 games after Conte’s sack. He is recording 1 assist.”
“Considering that Heung-Min Son won the ‘Golden Boot’ under manager Conte, the reason for his recent resurgence cannot be limited to the hardship. However, it is no coincidence that Heung-Min Son was revived after Conte left. All of the flanks below have suffered from a lackluster performance, and Tottenham will hope Son Heung-min continues to score.”
Tottenham also failed to escape the military this time. After taking over as manager Conte, outstanding players were recruited, and expectations were raised by refining the team from the preseason, but it did not come to fruition. In particular, it was painful to be knocked out in the round of 32 by Nottingham Forest in the English Football League Cup (EFL Cup) and knocked out in the round of 16 by Sheffield United in the English FA Cup.
In the end, coach Conte stepped on the sack process. Head coach Christian Stellini took over the baton and took over as acting manager, but he was also chased away. Currently, he is playing the rest of the season as acting coach Ryan Mason. 메이저사이트
Amid this trend, Son Heung-min recently launched a signal flare of revival. He has recorded 4 goals and 1 assist in 5 games from Brighton in the 30th round to Liverpool in the 34th round. The advantages that disappeared under Conte’s managerial system are reappearing one by one.
‘Boot Room’ highlighted the recent performance, saying that Son Heung-min’s revival cannot be directly linked to coach Conte’s hardship, but it is a factor that can never be ignored. In addition, he added that all side resources in Tottenham suffered from sluggishness under manager Conte.
For the rest of the season, Tottenham desperately needs Son Heung-min. Expectations are also high for breathing with ‘soul partner’ Harry Kane. In the next round, Tottenham seeks victory against Crystal Palace, and Son Heung-min will challenge for his 11th goal in the league, a goal in three consecutive matches.
