“Nice One” Sonny is saying “I hate it” to the team… “I shouldn’t have slowed down the tempo.”

Tottenham Hotspur Captain Son Heung-min made an unusual “no-nonsense” towards the team. Son Heung-min, who has a reputation for his warm leadership, not his usual charisma, has instilled tension in the team that has lost consecutive games.

Tottenham lost 1-2 against Aston Villa in the 13th round of the Premier League in the 2023-2024 season at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 26th (Korea time).

After the game, Son Heung-min pointed out that the players could not maintain the tempo of the game in the previous situation, so they dedicated the initiative.

Son said in an official interview, “Especially when we are leading 1-0. We have to admit our opponents. I made a few mistakes when I was leading 1-0 this season. I started to play a little slow.”

Tottenham has lost three consecutive games from the 11th round. Coincidentally, they scored the first goal in all three games and suffered upset losses. According to Sky Sports, Tottenham is the fifth team in the history of the Premier League to lose three consecutive games after scoring the first goal. It is the first time in nine years since Leicester City in December 2014.

Son Heung-min admitted that it was difficult for Tottenham players to maintain their concentration due to delays in the game, such as injuries and VAR readings. Nevertheless, he stressed that Tottenham should not have slowed down the tempo in order to show its strengths.

“Scenes like the set piece loss just before halftime were something we should not see in order for us to become strong. If the game stops like this, it is not good for our play. We need to deploy the ball as fast as possible,” Son said. We could not blame only the external environment.

Son Heung-min said, “The game has been suspended continuously. The game has been suspended, but it’s actually our fault. We should have dominated the game more so that such a situation does not come out. There was a lot to learn. I am so sorry to the fans.” 토토사이트

Tottenham played against Aston Villa without five key players due to injuries and disciplinary actions. Backup players’ performance cannot be the same as them. Son Heung-min seems to have emphasized this responsibility on the players who came out on behalf of the main players.
