Son Heung-min and Hwang Hee-chan go side by side… ‘Grand welcome’ to Klinsman
Son, ‘two goals in a row’ in the match against
Bournemouth, ‘intuitive’ Show off performance in front of Klinsman
The day Korean national soccer team coach Jurgen Klinsman came, Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham) and Hwang Hee-chan (27, Wolverhampton)’s toes flashed once again. was As if there were no players to replace them in the national team, they roamed the ground endlessly and greeted each other with goals.
Son Heung-min scored the opening goal in the 14th minute of the first half in the match against Bournemouth in the 31st round of the 2022-2023 English Premier League (EPL) held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the night of the 15th. Although the team lost 2-3, Son Heung-min, who became the first Asian player to score 100 goals in the EPL career in the previous game, succeeded in scoring two goals in a row. He also left just two goals in double digits in the league for seven consecutive seasons.
Hwang Hee-chan Hwang also reported a goal on the same day as
the scorer was activated in the 5th minute after replacing the second goal of the season against Brentford .
Hwang Hee-chan, who played the 31st EPL match against Brentford, led the team to a 2-0 victory by scoring a goal 5 minutes after being substituted in the 19th minute of the second half when the team led 1-0. It is the second goal in the league after two games after his return from injury.
The performance of the two on this day had a great meaning in its own way. This is because coach Klinsman, who was on a business trip to check the European faction, came after stepping on English soil.
Manager Klinsman watched the match between Tottenham and Bournemouth on the field that day. Manager Klinsman played an active part in Tottenham in the 1994-1995 season and 1997-1998 season during his active career. He scored 29 goals in the 1994-1995 season, and in the 1997-1998 season, he was loaned to Tottenham in the second half and scored 9 goals, leading the team to remain in the first division. Manager Klinsman, who came down to the ground during halftime and even greeted the fans, said in an interview with British PA, “I am happy to be back home. Sonny (nickname of Son Heung-min) is a very special player in Korea. He said, “I am really happy to receive the opportunity to coach Son Heung-min for several years until the next World Cup.”
Watching the game from the point of view of coach Klinsman is expected to be of great help in terms of ‘how to use Son Heung-min in the national team’. Son Heung-min, who has been playing mainly as a left-sided striker in Tottenham, kept this position even after Antonio Conte took over, but in actual play, he played a lot of central midfielder roles behind Harry Kane. This was the result of coach Conte’s adjustment to save Perisic, who dribbles from the side and crosses. Because of this, Son Heung-min suffered from pressure from the opponent at a low position during the attack, greatly reducing his power, and there was a lot of burden to participate in the defense. 메이저놀이터
However, things changed when Conte left and acting manager Christian Stellini took over.
Acting Stellini gave Dejan Kulusevski the role that Son Heung-min had played in the match against Brighton on the 8th, and raised Son Heung-min’s position to play a more aggressive role by setting up a two-top with Kane. Son Heung-min, who was burdened with defense, scored two goals in a row, and Perisic, who caused the problem of coexistence and incongruity, also assisted Son Heung-min’s goal for two consecutive games and caught two rabbits at once.
Hwang Hee-chan, who missed last month due to a hamstring injury during the call for an A-match, was also put in as a substitute and announced that his physical condition had returned to normal by scoring a goal with active movement.
