A survey showed that Son Heung-min (Tottenham) is the player who participates the most in defense among professional soccer strikers in the world.

On the 8th (local time), the International Institute of Sports Research (CIES), a research institute under the Federation of Football Associations (FIFA), announced that Son Heung-min received the highest score as a result of analyzing the degree of defensive participation of attackers playing in 30 professional soccer leagues around the world. 안전놀이터

CIES evaluated the degree of participation in defense based on the distance sprinted at a speed of more than 25 km per hour during the defense process and the number of times pressure was applied to the opponent even without physical contact or touching the ball.

As a result of adding up the two factors, Son Heung-min ranked first overall.

Son Heung-min took first place (100 points), boasting outstanding activity, especially in the distance covered at high speed during the return to defense. 슬롯사이트

Son Heung-min ranked 7th overall (86.6 points) in the number of pressures. When limited to the top five European leagues (Spain, Germany, Italy, England, and France), not only was the sprint distance ranked first, but also the number of pressures was ranked first.

Son Heung-min’s Tottenham teammate Richarlison ranked second overall after Son Heung-min in sprint distance (89.9 points) and number of pressures (76.8 points) when limited to Europe’s top five leagues.

CIES analyzed that Son Heung-min and Richarlison ranked first and second next to each other because “Tottenham coach Anzhi Postekoglou demands a high level of defensive involvement from attackers in defensive situations.” 토토사이트 추천
