‘9 runs only for Son Heung-min’ Liverpool Klopp is afraid of SON… ‘Wolcle’s intimidation’

Even in Borussia Dortmund (Germany) and when he moved to Liverpool (England), Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham) was feared. Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp, who knows Son Heung-min’s intimidation better than anyone else, is still most wary of Son Heung-min.

Tottenham and Liverpool will face off in the 2022-2023 English Premier League (EPL) at Anfield, Liverpool, England at 0:30 am (Korean time) on the 1st. Tottenham (54 points) and 7th place Liverpool (53 points), who are aiming for the right to advance to the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL), which can go up to 4th place, are expected to fight without concessions.

At the official press conference held the day before the game, manager Klopp did not hide his wariness toward Son Heung-min.

Coach Klopp said, “Tottenham has shown the strongest counterattacking ability in Europe in recent years.” “When we lose the ball, Harry Kane appears. Then, in front of the goal, Son Heung-min faces a one-on-one situation with the goalkeeper,” he said. .

“Tottenham is such a team. The way to defend properly is not to lose the ball. That’s the most important thing,” Klopp said. “They have really good players. It showed. Tottenham could have won. It’s a team that creates great chances, and that team is the opponent we have to fight.”

Son Heung-min and Kane are the best attacking duo in EPL history. On the 28th, against Manchester United, Son Heung-min scored a goal after Kane’s pass, which was the 46th goal the two have ever combined in the league. With each other’s help, Son Heung-min scored 24 goals and Kane scored 22 goals.

After Son Heung-min moved to Tottenham ahead of the 2015-2016 season, this record of the two, who played hand-to-hand, far exceeds the 36 goals of Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard, who played for Chelsea, widening the gap.

However, it cannot be considered that Klopp’s remarks are only general remarks evaluated on this point. Klopp is one of the managers who knows the value of striker Son Heung-min, whom he met as an opponent, better than anyone else. Because he conceded more goals to him than anyone else.

During his time as coach of Dortmund, he scored 5 goals for Son Heung-min. Of these, multi-goals were scored twice. Dortmund lost all three games conceded by Son Heung-min. Unfortunately, at the same time, they moved to the EPL side by side, and Son Heung-min continued to bully Klopp. Wearing a Tottenham uniform, Son Heung-min scored four goals against Liverpool.바카라사이트

So, in an interview with KBS last November, Klopp said, “One of the biggest mistakes in my life was not signing Son Heung-min. He is an outstanding player. He is fantastic, a symbol of Korean football and one of the best strikers in the world.” was also evaluated.

Son Heung-min once again aims at Klopp. 3 points are desperately needed to secure the right to advance to the UCL. Attention is focused on the tip of Son Heung-min’s feet even in order to narrow the gap with Man United (60 points).
