‘Captain Son Heung-min’ is not going to Saudi Arabia, Tottenham made a big decision! ‘Great re-signing’ is rapid… He will play in the EPL until 2026

British media ‘Team Talk’ reported on the 15th (Korea time), “Son Heung-min wants to end his career at Tottenham. Tottenham is preparing a proposal that includes a huge salary increase.”

Fabrizio Romano, a reporter who is well versed in European soccer, agrees. “Coach Anze Postecoglou (58) and Son Heung-min are enjoying immense popularity at Tottenham. Captain Son Heung-min is satisfied with Postecoglou’s leadership. After signing a contract with Tottenham, Son will be able to realize his dream,” he explained.

Son already signed a contract with Tottenham. In 2021, Son extended his contract with Tottenham until the summer of 2025. According to England’s Team Talk, Tottenham can trigger an extension option. The media reported, “Tottenham may use the option, but they are about to sign a new contract with Son.” It is understood that they are trying to ensure the treatment of their key player and captain. 바카라사이트

The weekly wage increase is also definitive. An unconventional amount of money is expected. “He is paid 190,000 pounds (about 310 million won) per week by Tottenham Hotspur. There will be an unconventional increase in the new contract,” the media said.

He was once rumored to be moving to Saudi Arabia. The Saudi Arabian Professional League (SPL) has recruited a large number of superstars with massive funds. When he visited Korea for the A-match in July, Son said in the mixed zone, “Korea’s captain does not go to Saudi Arabia.” His answer was Ki Sung-yueng (FC Seoul) quoted that “Korea’s captain does not go to China.”

In fact, SPL has brought in a large number of big names based on state funding. Cristiano Ronaldo, Sadio Mane, Aymeric Laporte (Al-Nasr), Neymar, Huweng Neves, and Sergey Milinkovic-Savic (Al-Hilal) are all playing in Asia. Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kante (Al-Itihad) are also starting their teams.

In September, local fans in the U.K. noted the possibility of Son renewing his contract. “Tottenham is discussing a long-term contract with the club’s new captain Son Heung-min. According to sources, the contract will be finalized before Christmas.”

Son has achieved many things in the Premier League. He has played for nine seasons since joining Tottenham Hotspur in 2015. He played in 389 matches and scored 155 goals. He is fiercely chasing Cliff Jones (159), who is ranking sixth in the club’s history in terms of scoring.

He also made history. Son became the first Asian player to receive the Golden Boot. He scored 23 goals in the 2021-2022 season, tying with Mohamed Salah (Liverpool). Son became the dramatic top scorer as he scored multiple goals in the final match of the 38th round of the Premier League.

Last season, he overcame negative injury and scored in double digits. Son Heung-min suffered an orbital fracture during a match against Marseille in the UEFA Champions League. He recovered quickly to play in the 2022 Qatar World Cup, and scored 10 goals in the Premier League. It was a double-digit score for the seventh consecutive season.

He is especially fast in scoring this season. This matches Postecoglou’s signature offensive soccer. Son has already scored 10 goals, scoring double digits for eight consecutive seasons. He is fiercely chasing after leading scorer Erling Holan (14 goals) and runner-up Salah (11 goals) of Liverpool.

Son displayed stellar performance in the match against Newcastle United, the previous match. Son recorded two assists in the first half alone. Destiny Udogi (21) received Son’s pass and scored his debut goal for Tottenham, and Hissarlisong (26) scored the first time in about a month. Son scored his 10th goal in the second half by himself completing the penalty kick he had won.

If Son renews his contract, he will challenge another milestone. Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney has scored in double digits for 11 consecutive seasons. Frank Lampard (10 seasons), Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero (9 seasons above). Son Heung-min, Thierry Henry, and Sadio Mane have scored in double digits for eight consecutive seasons.

He has continued to leave his footsteps in the Premier League. With 113 goals in the Premier League, Son ranks 23rd with Arsenal legend Ian Wright (113 goals). He is trailing Raheem Sterling and Steven Gerrard (120 goals). Son has 56 assists in his career, tying for 29th with Trent Alexander Arnold (Liverpool) and Eric Cantona.

He is continuing to make history. Son took over as captain of Hugo Lloris (36) under Postecoglou. He is the first Asian captain in Tottenham’s history. Harry Kane, who was highly likely to be the next captain, left for Bayern Munich. Son’s shoulders felt heavy. Postecoglou appointed new midfielder James Maddison and defender Christian Romero as vice captains.

Son, wearing the captain’s armband, flew wildly. While mostly playing on the sidelines, Son moved to the central striker position due to his poor performance by his rival Hissarlisong. He adjusted perfectly, leaving his concerns behind. Local media also commented that Son completely filled Kane’s absence.

He also has the best relationship with Postecoglou. He especially gives high praise to Son. “He is a fantastic player. Everybody knows that,” Postecoglou said at an event at the Tottenham fan forum. “Coaches spend a lot of time searching for a team leader. It is a very important part. That is why they chose him as the captain.”

Postecoglou had a lot of information on Asian players. He once coached the Australian national team and the Yokohama F. Marinos in Japan. “Other teams knew Son well. I’ve been watching Son for a long time,” Postecoglou said. “I’m a leader from Asia. I know Son’s status in Asia well. I respect him. Both my teammates and opponents highly appreciated him.”

He expressed great satisfaction with the captaincy. Tottenham Hotspur led by Postecoglou won eight games and two draws in its first 10 matches, showing its triumphant performance. Watchers say that Son played a big role. In his first away match, Son displayed a new culture of approaching and greeting the fans. “Son Heung-min, Madison, and Romero are doing their job as captains,” Postecoglou said. “He feels comfortable as if he had been with Tottenham for 10 years. They are great players personally as well.”

Son’s role did not end in the locker room. His presence at the stadium is also immense. Son scored a hat trick in the match against Burnley to announce the race for the top scorer. Son scored a goal with a sensational chip shot in the first half. In the second half, he added one goal each with his left and right feet. The game clearly showed the strengths of two-footed strikers.

In the subsequent Arsenal and North London derby, Son scored multiple goals to become the hero of the match. Son scored an equalizer with his sensational left footed shot in the 41st minute of the first half. In the second half, Tottenham struck a balance again after losing a point. Son tried to shoot at a superb timing and penetrated the opponent’s goalkeeper. The match ended 2-2 after fierce competition.

He built his 200th goal in his career. Son scored his 200th career goal in a match against Liverpool, where he started as a striker, by pushing Hissarlison’s pass in the 14th minute of the first half. Tottenham was able to take the lead thanks to Son’s goal. Since then, Son has displayed several sharp shots and threatened Liverpool’s goal.

Postecoglou’s accolades continued. According to the British BBC, Postecoglou said, “He showed an excellent performance. He is a leader who leads by example in training as well. Thanks to his excellent leadership of the pressure line, Tottenham scored a goal. He is a striker who saves chances well. I’m glad to be with Son.” He added, “He can play anywhere. He can be a striker.”

Son’s scoring spree continued in October. At a home game against Fulham, Son scored one goal and one assist by himself, leading his team to a 2-0 win. In the first half, Son scored a goal near the penalty box to send the ball into the net. Son, who scored the first goal, also helped Madison score the goal in the second half, and was named the MOM of the match.

He scored the winning goal again in the match against Crystal Palace. Tottenham was leading by an own goal from its opponent team’s defender. Thirteen minutes later, Son effectively sealed the match. He scored his eighth goal of the season by sending a cross in a sensational way. He has made a remarkable achievement in extending Tottenham’s unbeaten run to 10 games.

Tottenham, which had been on a roll, has been reeling since November. Major players suffered severe string injuries. Defenders Mickey van der Penn and Madison were injured and their vice-captain Romero could not play for a while due to injury. Tottenham lost consecutively to Chelsea, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Aston Villa. Son Heung-min was not good enough either.

The team made a triumphant comeback against difficult opponent Manchester City. Again, it was Son who unleashed Tottenham’s frustrating attack. Early in the first half, Son penetrated the back of Manchester City and penetrated the goalkeeper Ederson with a strong right footed shot. Three minutes later, he had an own goal misfortune, but he survived by helping Giovanni Lo Celso (27) score in the second half. Tottenham tied Manchester City 3-3 after a difficult battle of six goals each.

Afterwards, Tottenham was hit again by West Ham United. Romero’s first goal was not kept. In the second half alone, he gave up two goals. Son Heung-min tried to save his teammate’s opportunity by focusing on the connection, but failed to score in the end.

In the match against powerhouse Newcastle, Son played a full-score game. He started as a flanker for the first time in a long time. Hisarlisong was a striker. Son had a complete victory in a side match against his former teammate Kieran Trippier. In the first half alone, Son beat him twice to score a assist. His sharp cross hit Udogi and Hisarlisong’s feet perfectly.

Son continued to display stellar performance in the second half as well. He induced the opponent’s foul by making a quick breakthrough. He himself finished the penalty kick, giving his team a fourth goal. Tottenham succeeded in turning the mood around with a landslide 4-1 victory.

Son will likely start in the next match as well. Opta, a statistics magazine, also has high hopes for Son’s performance. “He assisted Udo Ki and Hisharlison in the match against Newcastle. He also scored a penalty kick at the end of the second half,” the media said. “He has scored 10 goals and four assists in 16 matches. He is particularly strong in away matches. He has scored seven goals. Holan is the only player who has more goals in away matches than Son this season.”

“The revival of Hisharlisong is a boon for Tottenham. He scored his first multi-goal goal since the game against Everton in May last year,” the media said. “Tottenham’s three top players will be Son Heung-min, Hisharlisong, and Brennan Johnson. Son is likely to play as a flanker. Hisharlisong will play as a striker following the last game.”

For now, Tottenham will play this match without any key players. Additional injuries have been confirmed. Postecoglou told Football London that Rossellso felt uncomfortable during training and could not play at the match against Nottingham Forest. Rossellso had an 8.6 and 7.3 rating for his “foot mob” in his two matches. He is considered a likely replacement for Madison, who will return next year.

In addition, Van de Pen, Ivan Perisic and Ryan Sessegnon are on the injured list. Rodrigo Bentancur also entered a long-term injury due to a tackle he suffered in the match against Villa. In the meantime, Son Heung-min is playing steadily without injury. It is one of the main reasons why Postecoglou gives full trust.

For this reason, Tottenham is likely to come up with a lineup similar to the last game. As Opta predicted, Son Heung-min, Hisharlison and Johnson are expected to play as three-top players. In the last game, Klusevski was behind. Pape Mata Sarr and Yves Bissouma are likely to guard the midfield, while Udogi, Ben Davies, Romero and POW are likely to take charge of the four-back. The goalkeeper will be taken by Gugliemo Vicario unless there is a big upset.
