Son Heung-min, who was the top scorer in the Premier League last season, was included in the world’s 100 best players for five consecutive years, but ranked somewhat lower.
On the 26th (Korean time), the British Guardian selected and revealed 100 players who performed outstandingly in 2022. While most of the players play in Europe’s five major leagues, Son Heung-min, who was the top scorer in the Premier League last season, was also on the list.
The media ranked Son Heung-min in 26th place. Compared to 2021, the ranking has risen by 13 steps, but it is somewhat disappointing that young players such as Bukayo Saka (Arsenal), Rafael Leang (AC Milan), and Enso Fernandez (Benfica) are ranked higher than Son Heung-min, the top scorer. It’s an evaluation.
The media pointed to the sluggishness in the first half of this season as the reason for selecting Son Heung-min in 26th place. 메이저놀이터
“Son Heung-min climbed 13 steps, but it was based on his performance in the first half of last year. From the first day of 2022 to the end of the season, he led Tottenham to 4th place with 15 goals and 6 assists. He won the top scorer with Mohamed Salah.” did.
However, he pointed out that his performance in the second half was poor compared to the first half, saying, “I couldn’t show the same appearance as usual after wearing a mask due to an orbital fracture injury.”
In fact, Son Heung-min is experiencing the worst slump in his career. Aside from his time as a promising player, he is suffering from the most extreme goal drought since the 2012/13 season when his talent exploded in earnest.
Most of all, it’s a pity that only 3 matches were scored. In a situation where other offensive resources such as Hisharlisson and Dejan Kulusevski were not in normal condition due to injuries, the sluggishness of Son Heung-min, who plays a key role in the team’s attack, is inevitable.
Recently, Heung-Min Son acknowledged, “There were ups and downs in my performance this season. It is true that I lost a goal or something else.” I promised to show an improved image.
