Reporter Lee Geon Sports Chosun.com] Son Heung-min (Tottenham) regretted the defeat.
Tottenham lost 2-3 in the 31st round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-2023 season against Bournemouth held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the afternoon of the 15th. Son Heung-min scored the opening goal. However, in the second half, the defense collapsed and eventually lost. Before the game started, the news came that Newcastle, who competed for 4th place, had lost. If Tottenham wins, it could have surpassed Newcastle. However, it failed to add victory points.
After the game, Son Heung-min expressed disappointment, saying, “I can’t express it in words.” He scored goals in two consecutive matches, but said that it did not mean much, saying “team performance is more important than individual records.”
◇ The following is Q&A with Son Heung-min
– There was a lot of hardship. The result is disappointing.
▶ Can you express it in words? In a 2-2 situation, taking a little more risk for victory seems to have led to a loss in the game in a way. I think we should have played a little more comfortably in the first half, but I think it’s a pity that we didn’t.
-2 goals in a row.
▶Actually, I talked about it even after the last game, but for me now, how to make the team finish better is more important than my personal record. There are really only a few games left now, and during that time I think more about how to finish better.
I think about how I could have given more help to my teammates. If I can continue to help the team, I think I should continue to show that. It seems like a day with a little more responsibility.
-There are important games left to finish in 4th place, such as the away to Newcastle and the home game against Man Utd.
▶Every game is really, really important. To be honest, I don’t think there was anything more important than today’s game. 카지노사이트
Because Newcastle lost the game and we went on the pitch knowing the result, I think today’s match is quite disappointing. Regardless of whether it’s Newcastle or any opponent, I think the most important thing is to pour everything I have now and get three points. There are only a few weeks left until the end of the season, but we poured all our energy into it. We always believe in the possibility of finishing in the highest position and want to finish like that.
-Director Klisman came.
▶I couldn’t see you separately after it was over, and I didn’t talk about anything special. I asked him a little about how he was doing and where he was going after the game today. Just a personal story, the coach said to have fun in the game. I think I was able to play a goal scoring game because the coach came and gave me good energy. It would have been better if I had clearly shown the victory to the coach, but I feel very regretful about not being able to do that. I hope the director enjoys watching it.
