Reporter Ahn Gyeong-nam = As Tottenham Hotspur’s midfield is devastated ahead of the top 4 competition in the English Professional Football Premier League (EPL) and the round of 16 of the European Football Federation (UEFA), fears that support fire towards Son Heung-min (31) will weaken. has been created
Rodrigo Bentancur ended up on the long-term injured list. It is in fact a season out decision because it is unclear whether he will return within the remainder of the season.
Bentancur injured his knee during an away game in the 23rd round of the EPL in the 2022-2023 season against Leicester City on the 12th and was replaced.
At the time of his injury, the situation was not serious, but as a result of a detailed examination, it is known that it will take at least 6 to 7 months to recover.
Fabrizio Romano, an Italian journalist who is proficient in European football, tweeted, “Bentancur is expected to take 6-7 months to recover from a knee ligament injury.”
With only about three months left until the end of the league, this season, as well as the beginning of next season, was inevitable.
Injury continues in Tottenham’s midfield. Earlier, Eve Bisuma injured her ankle and was on the operating table, and Bentancur collapsed, so difficulties in forming the midfield are expected.
In particular, Bentancur is an irreplaceable resource as a main midfielder.
In the match against Leicester, after Bentancur was missing, Papesar was sent out, but it was not enough. Oliver Skip has also suffered from injuries throughout the season and has lost his game sense.
The forward deployment of ‘multi-resource’ Eric Dyer is also an option to consider, but it is risky to change the defensive line.
The Bootroom, a British media outlet, also expressed concern over Bentancur’s departure.
The media analyzed that “Harry Kane and Son Heung-min are important, but Bentancur is another type of player who brings absolute decisiveness to the team,” and analyzed that quality passes toward the attacking team will be greatly reduced.
To make matters worse, defensive midfielder Pierre-Emile Hoivier cannot play in the away match against AC Milan (Italy) in the UEFA Champions League round of 16, scheduled for the 15th, due to accumulated warnings.
It looks like it will be a huge power loss as Tottenham have rarely played without both players this season. 카지노
There is also a high risk that Son Heung-min and Kane will be isolated. Son Heung-min, who was the top scorer in the league last season with 23 goals, has scored only 4 goals (3 assists) this season. 8 goals (3 assists) in the official match.
In fact, it will be more difficult for Son Heung-min to take a shooting opportunity if the two key midfielders, who are the beginning of the build-up and will lead the pass in the attack area, are missing.
If the back support disappears while the sluggishness continues like the last Leicester game, there is a possibility that Son Heung-min’s goal silence will be prolonged again.
