Son Heung-min scored 23 goals in the last English Premier League (EPL) and tied for the top scorer with Mohamed Salah. However, this season is not living up to expectations with 4 goals and 3 assists in the league. Son Heung-min, who wore a Tottenham uniform in 2015, scored double-digit league goals in six consecutive seasons from the 2016/17 season, his second season, to the 2021/22 season. Concerns are emerging that he will only score in single digits for the first time in 8 years since his debut season.
Son Heung-min said, “I don’t want to blame the injury. I was just very frustrated at the time of the injury. I had a chance to help the team, but I couldn’t do it as well as last season.”
“I’m looking back at the games and trying to improve things. I’ve had incredibly good years over the past few years, but this season is not easy. But these hard times make me stronger. I think positively and I try to talk.” said.
He also revealed the situation at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, where he participated wearing a protective mask. Son Heung-min said, “I wasn’t in 100% physical condition. But I was the captain of the national team and I was with my colleagues from the World Cup qualifiers. It would have been a nightmare if I couldn’t participate. If my colleagues needed me, I said I would do everything.”
