Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur) reflects on his disappointing 2022-2023 season.
“I just got back to Korea after the season, and I had time to reflect on the past season. The season was far from what I thought and expected, both as a team and as an individual, and I was disappointed.”
Son’s 2022-2023 season was a roller coaster.
After being the joint top scorer in the English Premier League with Muhammad Salah (Liverpool) in 2021-2022, expectations were high, but then he faltered. Before the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, he suffered a fractured orbital bone. He was ruled out for the tournament, but played with a face mask and helped South Korea reach the round of 16. He then struggled again in the Premier League, but since April, he’s been on fire, reaching 20 attacking points for the seventh consecutive season.
The same was true for Tottenham. They maintained a top-four finish until midway through the season. However, after the resignation of Antonio Conte, they sacked manager Christian Stellini. They finished the season under Ryan Mason, but their fourth-place finish at the time of Conte’s resignation dropped to eighth. They also failed to qualify for the European club competition.토토사이트
Son did not forget to thank the fans.
“However, I would like to thank the fans for their support during this difficult time and difficult season. I am very grateful to each and every one of you who supported us day and night in Korea, came to the stadium, and supported us online around the world,” he said. “I promise that we will make up for what we lacked this season and come back better and stronger next season, Sonny,” he concluded.
