By Lee Jae-sang = Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min, 31, has reflected on the 2022-23 English Premier League (EPL) season and promised to come back stronger.
Son shared his thoughts on the end of the season through his social media accounts on Feb. 2. He arrived in South Korea on the 30th of last month and has been recharging his batteries in the country.
After finishing as the joint top scorer with 23 goals in the 2021-22 season, Son Heung-min struggled with injuries and inconsistency this season, managing just 10 goals and six assists in the league. He suffered an orbital fracture before the World Cup in Qatar last year.
He still managed 14 goals and six assists in all competitions, including two in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) and two in the English FA Cup. Despite the setbacks, he scored double-digit league goals for the seventh consecutive season and netted his 100th career EPL goal.
“After the season ended, I came back to Korea and had time to think about it,” said Son. “It wasn’t the season I expected, and I was disappointed that we fell short as a team and as individuals.”
“I would like to thank the fans for their support during the difficult times. I would like to thank each and every one of our fans who supported us day and night in Korea, came to the stadium, and supported us online.” 안전놀이터
“We promise to recharge our batteries and come back better and stronger next season,” he added.
Meanwhile, Klinsmann’s captain Son Heung-min will join the squad in June ahead of the A-match trials after cooling off in Korea.
South Korea will face Peru in Busan on June 16 and El Salvador in Daejeon on June 20 for a two-game series.
