Son Heung-min (30), who entered the country with the shining ‘Golden Boot (Premier League Scorer Trophy)’ in the summer of 2022, unfortunately returned empty-handed this year.
Son Heung-min returned to Korea via Incheon International Airport at 4:30 pm on the 30th.
On this day, Son Heung-min entered the arrival hall in neat airport fashion with a Burberry check polo shirt as a point. He entered slowly and waved his hand at the fans.
On this day, about 200 people, including fans, visited the site of Son Heung-min’s return to Korea at the arrival hall.메이저놀이터
The crowd was still there, but Son Heung-min arrived empty-handed instead of the Premier League top scorer trophy, which was special last season.
Unlike the 2021/22 season, when he was the first Premier League scorer in Asia with 23 Premier League goals, Son Heung-min showed a disappointing performance in the 2022/23 season.
Son Heung-min fell into a slump in the first half of the season without scoring in eight consecutive games. He narrowly reported his first league goal, netting a hat-trick against Leicester City in round 9, but his slump continued.
Son Heung-min played the role of a left-sided attacking midfielder under Antonio Conte’s system, spending more time on defense than attack.
In addition, Son Heung-min suffered an orbital fracture in the final group stage match of the UEFA (European Football Federation) Champions League against Marseille held just before the 2022 World Cup in Qatar last November and had to undergo surgery. He was also goalless in the World Cup.
Son Heung-min faced a change after coach Conte was sacked after the match against Southampton on March 18. Son Heung-min, who scored only 6 goals in about 8 months, recovered his skills by scoring 4 goals in 2 months.
At the same time, Son Heung-min scored 10 league goals and succeeded in scoring in double digits in the Premier League for seven consecutive seasons.
He went on to become a Premier League legend by scoring the 100th Premier League goal, the first Asian player and the 16th in his career, during the season.
Son Heung-min, who has had an eventful season, is scheduled to enter the Paju NFC (National Training Center) on the 12th for an A match in June after taking a break.
The Korean national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, will have two warm-up matches against Peru at the Asiad Main Stadium in Busan on June 16 and against El Salvador at the World Cup Stadium in Daejeon on the 20th.
