Reporter Lee Hyeong-joo = Son Heung-min (30), who put into practice what his father felt, became the best.
Tottenham Hotspur won 4-0 in a match against Crystal Palace in the 19th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022/23 season held at Selhurst Park in Croydon, Greater London, Greater London, England on the 5th (Korean time) . Tottenham won after 3 league games, and Palace failed to win 2 league games in a row.
Son Heung-min broke the scoring drought on this day. In the 26th minute of the second half, the ball hit the opponent’s defense and went to the left side of the opponent’s box. Son Heung-min connected it with a shot and scored. It was the moment when the long agony of the heart came to an end.
In fact, before the game, Son Heung-min was in a sluggish situation, scoring no goals in 23 out of 25 games, including his team and national team. It was the goal that ended it. Even if you simply look at the number of EPL matches, it was a goal scored in 11 games after the match against Leicester City in the last 8 rounds.
This goal, which will be a turning point for Son Heung-min, came from his left foot rather than his right foot. Set plays are handled with the right foot, but it is Son Heung-min who uses the left foot almost as much as both feet. This is an advantage once again.
Also on the same day, British gambler William Hill said on their social media, “(Started in 1992) in EPL history, only two players have scored more than 40 goals with a weak foot (not the main foot). Harry Kane (EPL 196 goals) and Son Heung-min (97 EPL goals).”
Among thousands of players who have gone through a long history of more than 30 years, only two players have scored more than 40 goals with a weak foot, so you can feel the greatness of the record. You can also see Son Heung-min’s ability to use both feet.
Son Heung-min’s fantastic ability to use both feet was influenced by his father Son Woong-jeong (60), Son Academy coach. This is because coach Son Woong-jeong, who raised Son Heung-min as a father and soccer teacher, a former K-League player, emphasized the use of both feet to him. 토토사이트
On the 14th of last month, coach Son Woong-jeong, who appeared on the TVN program <You Quiz on the Block>, said, “I felt that the ability to use both feet was important during my active career. . If I use my right foot, I’ll get stabbed,” he said, conveying what he felt during his active career.
Then, he said, “(Son) Heung-min had to wear both feet while raising him. Even if he wore socks or clothes, he had to start with the left side (on the other side of the bowl).”
Of course, there must have been Son Heung-min’s efforts and the help of other coaching staff, but his father’s teachings helped him to use his left foot like the right foot, the main foot. And that effort helped Son Heung-min escape from the difficult slump and set another record.
