The British media criticized Son Heung-min’s skills this season by excluding him from the Premier League world class list.
British media ‘Give Me Sports’ reported on the 10th (Korean time), “Who is the world class in the Premier League?”
GiveMe Sports commented on the criteria for world class, saying “The term world class is subjective and varies from person to person, but we believe that a player must be among the top 3 or 4 players in the world at that position to be defined as world class.” . 토토
“At the start of the season, we named 19 world-class players from the Premier League. Now we think there are 15 world class players in the Premier League right now in January 2023.
The 15 players selected by Give Me Sports include Elling Halan, Kevin Debrawiner, Rodri, João Cancelo, Ederson, Ruben Dias (both Manchester City), Alisson, Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah (both Liverpool) and Bukayo. Saka, Martin Odegaard, Thomas Partey (both Arsenal), Casemir (Manchester United), Reese James (Chelsea) and Harry Kane (Tottenham) were named.
Heung-Min Son, Kalidou Koulibaly, N’Golo Kante (Chelsea), Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andrew Robertson, Fabinho, Thiago Alcantara (Liverpool), Bernardo Silva (Man City), Cristiano Ronaldo (Al Nasr), etc. Unlike the list last August, it was excluded from this list, and three Arsenal players who were not on the existing list were added to the list.
In Tottenham, Harry Kane was the only one named, but Son Heung-min, who was named last August, was excluded from the list due to the recent slump.
Regarding Kane, the media praised him, saying, “He scored 15 goals in 18 Premier League matches for Tottenham this season. It would be a shame for such a great player to finish his career without winning a trophy.”
On the other hand, regarding Son Heung-min, 토토 “We thought Son Heung-min was world class at the beginning of the season. But he has been disappointing this season, scoring just four goals in the Premier League, and ultimately lost the world class title.”
Since the beginning of this season, Son Heung-min has been sluggish in attack due to problems with Ivan Perisic and excessive defensive pressure.
Son Heung-min, who suffered an orbital fracture in a collision with the opponent’s defense during the final match of the 2022/23 season UEFA Champions League group stage against Marseille last November and has to wear a mask, is not easily out of the swamp of injury and sluggishness. .
Son Heung-min, who scored his first goal in the second half against Crystal Palace on the 5th, needs a clear rebound in the second half of this season in order to once again put his name on the Premier League world class.
