Tottenham Hotspur is expected to re-sign Son Heung-min.
On June 26 (KST), The Athletic listed the contract situations of all 20 Premier League (PL) teams. Regarding Tottenham, “The biggest deal for Tottenham is a one-year extension for Son Heung-min, whose contract expires in the summer of 2025. However, there is an option for a one-year extension in the contract.”
Son joined Tottenham from Leverkusen in 2015. In his debut season, he struggled somewhat. He scored just four goals in 28 league appearances and didn’t quite live up to expectations. This led to speculation of a return to the German Bundesliga. However, Son was determined to stay at Tottenham and prove himself once again.
His first season was really just an adjustment period. He quickly became a key player for Tottenham. Starting with 14 goals in 34 PL games in 2016-17, he consistently scored double-digit goals in the league until last season.
The highlight came in 2021-22. From the league opener against Manchester City, Son began to find the back of the net on a consistent basis, eventually breaking the 20-goal mark. He eventually shared the PL top scoring honors with Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) with 23 goals. He also became the first Asian player to win the Golden Boot.
After his moment of glory, last season was a bit of a mixed bag. Son Heung-min started the season on a high note with an assist in the first game of the league, but soon fell silent. Offensive points were hard to come by. There was even talk of him being left out of the starting lineup. To make matters worse, he suffered an orbital fracture ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Towards the end of the season, things started to pick up, and Heung-min scored 10 goals in the PL last season, his seventh consecutive double-digit goal-scoring season. He also reached a significant milestone. Heung-min scored his 100th league goal against Brighton in April. He was the 34th player in PL history to do so, and the first Asian. 짱구카지노 주소
After the season ended, it was revealed that Son was playing with a sports hernia injury. It’s amazing that he scored 10 goals in the league despite a series of injuries, including an orbital fracture and a sports hernia. So, last season is over, and he’s going into this season with a different team.
Tottenham underwent major changes this summer. First, there was a change of manager. Enze Postecoglou was appointed to the full-time managerial position that had been vacant since Antonio Conte’s departure. Postecoglou arrived at Celtic in 2021 after coaching in Asia, including Australia and Japan. It was his first European job, but he immediately proved his leadership skills.
