The British media were again beaten by Tottenham manager Antonio Conte.
They predicted that Son Heung-min would be left out of the starting lineup against Fulham and wait on the bench. There was also pressure to send Son Heung-min to the bench.
But Conte didn’t even pretend to hear. He put Son Heung-min as the starter.
Son Heung-min added one assist, but he could not make an impact.
Then, the media excluded Son Heung-min from Tottenham’s best 11 expected to play in the FA Cup round of 32 against Preston.
A football commentator said that if he were Conte, he would drop Son Heung-min and use Richarli Song.
However, coach Conte appointed Son Heung-min as the starter this time as if nothing happened.
Son Heung-min scored two goals and played a big role.
The media, which clamored to remove Son Heung-min, became embarrassed. He gave Son Heung-min a rating of 9 and quietly fell behind.
They also made a fuss about Son Heung-min appearing as a competitor when Tottenham recruited Arnaut Danjuma.
However, strictly speaking, Danjuma is not Son Heung-min, but Richarlison’s backup. Richarlison is a ‘glass body’. He brought Danjuma because he did not know when he would be injured again.
While recruiting Danjuma, he must have also aimed for the effect of expecting Son Heung-min to step up.
The more backup players there are, the wider the player’s range of operations.
However, Tottenham’s main left wing is Son Heung-min.
World class is not something that can be achieved in a few games. This is why it is absurd to compare Danjuma with Son Heung-min.
However, there may be situations where Son Heung-min is absent several times for rest.
Even if Conte wants to write Richarlison, he has concerns about not being able to use it full-time. 스포츠토토
