Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham), the first Asian player to score 100 goals in the English Premier League (EPL), promised to take a step forward. In an interview with the British media Evening Standard on the 10th (Korean time), “I am not a perfect player yet. He can develop further,” he promised.
It’s a particularly difficult season. Last season, he was the top EPL scorer (23 goals), but the scoring pace in the 2022-2023 season is low. In the midst of this, the league’s 7th goal was a sweet rain amidst the drought. In the home game against Brighton at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London on the 9th, Son Heung-min completed his 100th EPL goal with a fantastic right-footed kick, leading the team to a 2-1 victory. 안전놀이터
A shot of a beautiful trajectory plugged in your favorite area, in your favorite way. A local relay broadcaster also praised it as “the most Son Heung-min-like goal.” In fact, this kind of scene came out often until the 2021-2022 season. It was as if the opponent’s goal net would shake if he touched the ball with his foot. Son Heung-min also said, “Last season was really fantastic. Becoming the top scorer was a magical moment that gave me tremendous confidence.”
However, a terrible goal drought came under pressure beyond imagination. Son Heung-min said, “When the new season started, people expected another performance, saying, ‘Sonny (Son Heung-min’s nickname) is the top scorer. But it was not an easy matter. As he got a lot of attention, the pressure increased,” he confessed.
