Harry Kane and Son Heung-min insisted on a two-day vacation in the locker room after catching defending champion Man City. It was reported that manager Antonio Conte also readily agreed.
Tottenham Hotspur won 1-0 against Manchester City in the 22nd round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 6th at 1:30 am (Korean time). Tottenham먹튀검증, who won three points, maintained 5th place in the league, closely following Newcastle United in 4th place.
Along with the victory, a historical record was also created. Kane, who scored the winning goal that day, became Tottenham’s all-time leading scorer. He scored 267 goals, surpassing Jimmy Greaves’ previous club record of 266. In addition, Kane, who even scored the 200th EPL goal, became the third player in history to have that record.
After the game, Conte called Kane to congratulate him. “You make me proud,” Conte said. He also congratulated the victory through his personal SNS, saying, “I am always with you even from afar. I am proud of our team.”
Son Heung-min’s performance was also impressive. Son Heung-min did not record an attack point in the match against Man City, but he made several threatening scenes, such as breaking through a fairly long distance with a dribble, and chilled Man City’s heart. It is Son Heung-min who showed a good figure again following the multi-goal against Preston last time.
Britain’s ‘The Athletic’ also highlighted Son Heung-min’s performance. The media said, “Son Heung-min, who lost his confidence and performance this season, showed a return to the past, such as carrying the ball at high speed and penetrating Man City. If they recover, Tottenham will be a different team.”
There was also an interesting back story. In Conte’s phone call, Kane indirectly insisted on a two-day vacation, saying, “See you on Wednesday,” and Son Heung-min was also delighted by shouting “two days off.” In the end, coach Conte also agreed to the vacation and was happy with it.
