After becoming the new captain of Tottenham Hotspur, Son Heung-min is trying to communicate more closely with his fans 토토사이트

Tottenham drew Brentford 2-2 in the opening match of the first round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2023-24 season held at the G-Tech Community Stadium in Brentford, England on the 13th at 10:00 pm (hereinafter Korean time).

This match was the place where Son Heung-min officially made his first appearance wearing the captain’s armband. Son Heung-min has recently become Tottenham’s new captain. Hugo Lloris, who served as captain until last season, was confirmed to part ways with Tottenham, and vice-captain Harry Kane also left for Bayern Munich. The vacant captaincy went to Son Heung-min.

In this regard, Tottenham said on the club website on the 13th, “Son Heung-min has been appointed as the captain of our team. Son Heung-min inherited the captain’s armband from Hugo Lloris. Son Heung-min, who is also a member of the team, is now ahead of his 9th season after joining Tottenham.”

At the time, Son Heung-min said on Tottenham’s official channel, “It is a real honor to be the captain of this huge team. I have already told all players that they must feel the responsibility of being captain, both on and off the pitch. A new season is coming, and now This is a new beginning. I will give everything for this uniform and captain’s armband.” 

Coach Enze Postecoglu, who appointed Son Heung-min as the new captain, said, “Son Heung-min has already shown great leadership on and off the pitch. That’s why he is a very suitable player as our team’s captain. Everyone knows that Son Heung-min is world-class, “He already has a lot of respect in the locker room. He gets along with all the groups in the team. It’s not just because he’s a popular player, it’s because he’s accomplished so much as captain of Tottenham and the Korean national team.” revealed 

The results of the ‘captain debut match’ were not good. Tottenham took the lead by scoring the opening goal in the 11th minute against Brentford. Another vice-captain Romero finished with a header from Madison’s free kick, who became a freshman and vice-captain. However, Tottenham conceded an equalizer when Son Heung-min allowed a penalty kick in the 23rd minute of the first half, and even dedicated a reverse goal in the 36th minute of the first half.

Fortunately, we managed to balance again before the first half ended. In the 4th minute of added time in the first half, the ball flew sideways as Madison broke through. Emerson Royal finished this with a shot and shook the net. Tottenham continued to attack in the second half, but drew without scoring. 

The result itself was disappointing. Son Heung-min also personally swallowed regret when he was replaced in the 30th minute of the second half. However, there is a topic that is separate from the results. Before the kick-off against Brentford, the players usually gather in a circle in the center of the field and shout fighting. This is called a hurdle, but this time the location was different.

The players, including Son Heung-min, went to the area where Tottenham away fans were located and hurdled together. Tottenham fans, as well as Brentford home fans, and the media watching the match paid attention to the different hurdles. 

The reason has been revealed. ‘Vice-captain’ Madison told the behind-the-scenes story on the club’s homepage on the 14th. He said, “Last night, Son Heung-min contacted me. He said he had a good idea. Son Heung-min suggested that we go near the expedition table and do hurdles so that the fans could feel that they were with the players.” 

Madison continued, “Son Heung-min had a team conversation on the away side and breathed fighting spirit. And we could definitely see the fans’ reaction to our actions. We are really grateful to the fans who always support us. They too You must have felt that kind of heart through this opportunity. These are exactly what we need. We are all always together.” 

Tottenham, led by ‘Captain Son Heung-min’, will challenge for the first win again after a draw in the opening game. Tottenham will have their first home game of the season against Manchester United on the 20th.
