Head coach Christian Stellini opened his mouth about Son Heung-min’s ‘bench departure’.
Tottenham Hotspur will face Chelsea in the 25th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 26th at 10:30 pm (Korean time). Tottenham are currently 4th in the league (42 points) and Chelsea are 10th (31 points).
Son Heung-min came off the bench in the last game against West Ham United. It was the first time since the match against Leicester City. Son Heung-min’s place was filled by Richarlison, who returned from injury.
As a result, it became a ‘win-win’. For Richarlison, it served as a good opportunity to improve his senses in practice. Son Heung-min also played as a substitute and scored a key goal for the team, scoring a goal in the league in about a month and a half메이저놀이터. It brought back good memories of him scoring a hat-trick as a substitute against Leicester.
At the same time, it was also worrisome. Son Heung-min scored 5 goals in all competitions in the game he started this season, but he showed a monster-like scoring ability by scoring 4 goals in just 2 games as a substitute. In response, some jokes say, “Son Heung-min must continue to be used as a replacement.”
Still, it’s still the top option Tottenham can choose. Speaking at a press conference against West Ham, assistant coach Stellini said: “We had to make this decision. We want our players to put a lot of energy into it. Heung-Min Son has played a lot and he will start off the bench today. I hope you will change it,” suggesting that he sat on the bench to arrange Son Heung-min’s physical strength.
This time, the interest of the local media was Son Heung-min. At a press conference ahead of the London derby against Chelsea, Stellini was again asked about the selection debate between Richarlison and Son Heung-min.
Head coach Stellini responded with vague remarks. “The decision is about the condition of the players. Richarlisson is 100% recovered, Son Heung-min has had problems he has had for a while. Players who have problems sometimes need time to recover and need to be well prepared for the next period. “He implied that Son Heung-min could be excluded from the selection once again.
He also urged all players to be 100%. “There are four games in 10 days and every game is going to be tough. We need every player 100 percent. If one player is 100 percent and another is 70 percent, we’re 100 percent a player,” said head coach Stellini. will choose”
