“Tottenham Captain” specially managed by Enje Postecoglou, is more likely to play in the Luton Town match.
Tottenham will play Luton Town in the eighth round of the English Premier League in the 2023-2024 season at 8:30 p.m. on the 7th at Kenilworth Road Stadium in Luton, Bedfordshire County, England.
Son Heung-min is literally the most popular player in Tottenham this season. This is because Harry Kane is filling in the empty spot where he left for Germany’s prestigious Bayern Munich. He has scored six goals in seven league games, including a multi-goal against Arsenal on the 24th of last month and the first goal against Liverpool on the 1st after breaking through the goal that had been blocked by a hat trick since the match against Burnley, who played as a front-line striker instead of Hishalisson on the 2nd of last month.
However, coach Postecoglou’s recent concern was Son Heung-min’s physical condition. In the aftermath of the first ‘North London Derby’ blood fight of the season, Son Heung-min had a slight injury along with Jameson Mason. Fortunately, he erased the suspicion of injury when he started against Liverpool, but it can also be seen from the British media that coach Postecoglou pampered Son Heung-min.
The Athletic, a British media outlet, said on the 3rd, “The Tottenham captain’s physical condition is under strict management,” and “Son Heung-min, along with Madison, was carefully managed during the treatment of bruises.” He added, “Son Heung-min is expected to be able to move to Luton Town after making a smart decision against Liverpool.”
Postecoglou replaced Son Heung-min with Manor Solomon in the 24th minute of the second half against Liverpool. The media emphasized, “Coach Postecoglou rejected the urge to leave key players on the field when chasing an important victory against Liverpool.” He then said, “It will support Tottenham well in the long run.”
Fortunately, Tottenham finished eighth in the league last season and will not play European club competitions such as the Champions League or the Europa League or the Conference League. In addition, he lost to Fulham in the League Cup on August 30, allowing him to focus only on the league and the FA Cup. It is fortunate for Postecoglou, who manages Son Heung-min in a special way, that he is in poor physical condition and does not have a tight schedule.
Son Heung-min is also forced to play with an injury. Even if Hishal Song’s performance has improved, Tottenham absolutely needs Son Heung-min. British media ‘The Boot Room’ predicted ‘Central SON’ in the Luton Town expedition. The media said, “Tottenham’s early exit from the League Cup means that coach Postecoglou’s preparation throughout the season is much easier. Tottenham, of course, will certainly hope to have a much stronger squad by the time their return to the European club competition approaches. If everything goes well, coach Postecoglou will be able to have two transfers in his existing team. Reporter Kim Jin-hoe
