There is a course that Tottenham Hotspur new players must go through immediately after joining. Getting to know Son Heung-min, the ‘ace’ who is in charge of ‘mischief’ and ‘smile’ in the team.
Previously, Son Heung-min finished the 22nd round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-2023 season with Man
City held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 6th with a 1-0 victory, and was caught exchanging jokes with side defender Pedro Poro. The prisoner is a player who transferred from Sporting CP to Tottenham only on the last day of the winter transfer window after long negotiations. It’s only been a week since I joined the new team, but I’ve already become a joke with Son Heung-min, the core of the team.
Former Villarreal winger Arnau Danjuma, who transferred in the same transfer market, also seems to have already become close to Son Heung-min.
Tottenham’s recently uploaded social media video features Tottenham players huddled together for a group photo shoot at the training ground.
Danjuma is standing next to the right side of Son Heung-min, who is standing on the left in the back row. Danzuma stretched out his arm and tapped the left side of Son Heung-min’s head with his hand while pretending to be shoulder to shoulder with Ben Davis, who was sitting next to him.
The reaction that followed was interesting. Rather than looking for the culprit (?), Son Heung-min taps the back of Richarlison’s head sitting in front of him. Then, Danjuma increased the intensity this time and hit Son Heung-min on the head again. ‘Head hitting’, which I used to do a lot in my childhood, was being done among world-class players.
Sohn Heung-min has been creating an atmosphere where he can joke around, laugh and talk like this when a new player arrives. I think it is his own way to help adapt to the new face. It doesn’t seem to matter even if the target is a position competitor.
