Tottenham also ‘Captain Thorn’… “I’ll give everything for the trophy”

South Korea national soccer team “captain” Son Heung-min, 31, will wear the captain’s armband at Tottenham Hotspur. Son becomes the second South Korean player in English Premier League (EPL) history to be named captain.

“We are pleased to announce the appointment of Son Heung-min as the club’s new captain for the 2015-2016 season,” Tottenham announced on its website on Wednesday (July 13), “taking over the armband from Hugo Llorente, who served as captain from the 2014-15 season.” Son becomes the second South Korean player to captain in the EPL in 11 years, following Jeonbuk Hyundai Technical Director Park Ji-sung. Park captained Queens Park Rangers in the 12-13 season, shortly after leaving Manchester United as an active player.

“It’s an honor to captain a big club like Tottenham. It’s an amazing and proud moment,” he said. “I have already emphasized to all the players that they should always act like a captain on and off the pitch,” he added, “and I will give my all for this shirt and the captain’s armband.”

With Joris likely to leave the club and striker Harry Kane joining Bayern Munich, Tottenham have chosen Son Heung-min as their new captain. His experience as a South Korean national team captain was also taken into account. Son has been the captain of the South Korean national team since September 2018.

Tottenham introduced Son as “the captain of Korea” and reviewed his past accomplishments. “Heung-min scored 23 goals and won the Golden Boot in the 21-22 season. Last season, he became the first Asian player to reach 100 goals in the EPL.” 메이저놀이터

Tottenham manager Enze Postecoglou said: “Sonny (Son’s nickname) has great leadership qualities on and off the pitch. It’s ideal to have him as our new captain.” “Everyone knows Son is ‘world class’. He has tremendous respect in the locker room and fits in with every group.”

Paris Saint-Germain’s (PSG) Lee Kang-in made his French Ligue 1 debut on Sunday, showing off his passing and breakaway ability. Lee started and played 82 minutes in the 23-24 season opener against Lorient. While he didn’t have an offensive point, he impressed with an 88% passing success rate and 75% dribbling success rate. He was also the designated kicker for set pieces, including free kicks from corners.

Despite the 0-0 draw, the Ligue 1 secretariat named Lee “The Player”. The Ligue 1 secretariat said, “Lee Kang-in enjoyed playing in the space of a great player in Lionel Messi (Inter Miami). The team may have been disappointed with the result, but they must have been pleased with his performance.”
