Korean football star Son Heung-min (Tottenham) takes on the important role of ‘captain’ in the newly launched Cleansman.

An official from the Korea Football Association said on the 21st, “Coach Jurgen Klinsmann has decided to entrust Son Heung-min as captain.” Coach Klinsman decided to captain Son Heung-min prior to the day’s training.

Son Heung-min’s captaincy was no different from an established fact even before the official announcement. Son Heung-min, who was first selected for the national team at the age of 18 in 2010 when coach Cho Kwang-rae led the national team, wore the captain’s armband from the evaluation match against Honduras held at Daegu Stadium on May 26, 2018. At the time, Ki Sung-yong (FC Seoul), who was the original captain, dropped out of the game due to poor physical condition, and Son Heung-min took over as temporary captain.

At the Russia World Cup held a month later, Son Heung-min again wore the temporary captain’s armband. Ahead of the final match against Germany in the group stage, head coach Shin Tae-yong entrusted the captaincy to Son Heung-min in place of captain Ki Sung-yueng, who was out of action due to injury.

At the time, there was vice-captain Jang Hyun-soo (Al-Hilal). However, it was difficult for Jang Hyun-soo to play the role of captain normally, as he was caught up in criticism due to a mistake in the previous game. Son Heung-min, who served as temporary captain, scored a key goal in the match against Germany, creating the ‘Miracle of Kazan’.

Son Heung-min, who was recognized for his qualities as a ‘captain’ through the match against Germany at the Russia World Cup, took on the official captaincy in earnest under the former coach Paulo Bento system, which was launched afterwards. He led the team admirably, demonstrating leadership by example. At the World Cup in Qatar last year, despite undergoing orbital fracture surgery, he showed his fighting spirit and led the national team to the round of 16. 온라인카지노

Born in 1992, Son Heung-min became a senior in the national team. Among the 25 players named on the list for this call, the older players than Son Heung-min are Lee Gi-je (Suwon), Jo Hyun-woo (Ulsan, Lee Sang-i, born in 1991), Kim Young-kwon (Ulsan), Kim Seung-gyu (Al-Shabaab, Lee Sang-i, born in 1990), Kim Tae-hwan ( Ulsan) and Jung Woo-young (Al Sadd Lee Sang-i, born in 1989). Hwang Eui-jo (Seoul), Son Jun-ho (Shandung Taisan), Kwon Kyung-won (Gamba Osaka), and Kim Jin-soo (Jeonbuk) were born in 1992 like Son Heung-min.

In particular, among the representative players, Son Heung-min has the most appearances in A matches with 108 matches. He has no other choice as a captain considering all aspects such as age and experience, as he has also stepped on the World Cup final stage three times.

Director Klinsman also has high expectations for Son Heung-min. After watching the K-League 1 match between FC Seoul and Ulsan Hyundai held on the 12th at the Seoul World Cup Stadium, he said, “I am a big fan of Son Heung-min.” .
