Pepe Sarr welcomes Son Heung-min back to the club.
Tottenham Hotspur released a video on their official social media account on the 9th (KST), saying, “Welcome back, Son Heung-min.” In the video, Sarr welcomed Son Heung-min back to Tottenham and got to know him.
Saar is known to be a favorite player of Son Heung-min. “He’s ‘Little Sonny,’ and when I see him, I remember when I first came to Tottenham. He always has good energy and is always smiling,” he said.
Son Heung-min left the team for a while due to being called up for the Asian Cup. It looked like he would be gone for an extended period of time. South Korea was considered a strong favorite to win the Asian Cup. The team was loaded with players who were at the peak of their powers in Europe, including Son Heung-min, Kim Min-jae, Lee Kang-in, and Hwang Hee-chan. It was a squad that many called the best of all time. South Korea had never won the Asian Cup in 64 years.
However, they struggled in the group stage, finishing second in the group with one win and two draws. As second in the group, South Korea advanced to the round of 16, where they met Saudi Arabia in a penalty shootout, and won in dramatic fashion over Australia in the quarterfinals. In the quarterfinals, they faced Jordan, whom they had beaten in the group stage, but fell to their knees.
The South Korean national soccer team, led by Jürgen Klinsmann, lost 0-2 to Jordan in the Asian Cup quarterfinals on Sunday at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan, Qatar.
South Korea was expected to win, but Jordan came out aggressively and the South Koreans struggled. There were several missed passes in the back areas and the threatening moments were more often created by Jordan. Cho Hyun-woo made some brilliant saves to keep them in the game. The first half ended scoreless at 0-0.
Jordan scored the first goal. In the eighth minute of the second half, Park Yong-woo’s backpass was intercepted by Al Naimat. Al Naimat was one-on-one with the goalkeeper and calmly beat the keeper with a shot that rattled the net. Jordan extended their lead. In the 21st minute of the second half, Al Tamari beat his defender on the right flank, cut into the center and scored with a left-footed shot. The match ended with a 0-2 loss for South Korea.
With Klinsmann’s elimination from the Asian Cup, Son Heung-min returned to Tottenham. After the game, Son said, “I really don’t know what to say. I’m sorry. The players did their best, and I’m so sorry that it ended in a mistake. I’m so sorry that we didn’t do as good as we could have done,” he said after the game. Shortly after the 토토사이트 game, Son boarded a flight to London.
“Son Heung-min’s return to Tottenham Hotspur is contingent on the outcome of the Asian Cup in South Korea,” reports Football London. Son Heung-min will return to Tottenham ahead of the Brighton game. Son’s return will be a big boost for Tottenham manager Enze Postecoglou. Everyone will be hoping he can play his part against Brighton and lift the team to the BIG 4,” the report said.
Tottenham brought in Timo Werner on loan when Son departed for the Asian Cup. Spurs played five games without him. The results were not good. In those five games, they won two, drew two, and lost one. They lost to Manchester City in the FA Cup and drew with Manchester United and Everton in the league.
Son Heung-min has been a key part of Tottenham’s core this season. He’s been outstanding up front and on the left wing. He has scored 12 goals in the league, making him the top scorer in the league. He is two goals behind the top scorer, Elling Holland. Son is, unsurprisingly, Tottenham’s top scorer. With him back, Tottenham’s offense will only get better.
It’s unclear if Son will start for Tottenham now that he’s back. Alasdair Gold, who covers Tottenham, expects Son to start alongside James Maddison, Dejan Kuluczewski, Rodrigo Bentancur, Sarr, Destiny Udogie, Micky van der Vaan, Christian Romero, Pedro Foro, and Guglielmo Vicario.
