Son Heung-min

Son Heung-min, captain of Tottenham Hotspur, who lost by three goals to Fulham FC, a bottom-ranked team in the English professional soccer Premier League (EPL), bitterly said that all team members should reflect on themselves.

Tottenham lost 0-3 in the 2023-2024 EPL 29th round away game against Fulham held at Craven Cottage in London, England on the 17th (Korean time).

If they had won that day, they would have been able to advance to the top 4 and advance to next season’s UEFA Champions League (UCL), but the team lost due to an unexpected loss.

Tottenham, ranked 5th, was behind overall, falling behind 14 to 16 in the number of shots fired against Fulham, ranked 12th.Looking at the score, it was a virtually one-sided game, with two goals conceded in the first half alone.

In an interview with Sky Sports after the game, Son Heung-min said, “This is an unacceptable result. Everyone has to look in the mirror and say, ‘It’s my fault.'”

He continued, “It wasn’t that good. I wasn’t able to put in the effort I showed this season in this game,” and added, “Both my performance and attitude were unsatisfactory.”

At the same time, he urged awareness, saying, “Everyone must come to their senses.”

Son Heung-min also expressed his apologies to the fans.He said: “It’s very sad to see this situation. Fans should not be shown games like this.”

According to Football London, coach Anzhi Postekoglou also expressed his disappointment at the post-game press conference, saying, “It was a really disappointing game.

This is the first time that Tottenham, who started the 2023-2024 season under coach Postekoglou, lost without scoring a goal in the league.

“There were plenty of opportunities to score,” said Coach Postekoglou, who reflected, “It’s no different from any other game. Continuous improvement is important,” and added, “Now that the turning point has passed, we must try to bounce back.”

Coach Postekoglou said he believes the team’s downturn in performance is temporary and that he is not immediately worried.

He said, “If it had been like this for five games in a row, I would have been worried, but I am just disappointed. We are analyzing both the positive and negative aspects.”

He said, “I don’t think that achieving 4th place is something to be rewarded for. This team has even advanced to the UEFA Champions League final. It’s okay if no one believes me. If the team itself does not improve, we will finish the season in 4th place. “I don’t even want to,” he emphasized. 스포츠토토
