“Kane transfer → SON attack signboard → Lee Kang-in?” Rising star Alonso reveals Tottenham’s best 11
A change in the airflow is happening again.
Spanish legend Xabi Alonso, coach of Bayer Leverkusen, has emerged as Tottenham’s next manager. After the Dutch ‘Telegraf’ report, the British media are also putting weight on director Alonso.
England’s ‘The Sun’ released Tottenham’s predicted best 11 on the 3rd (Korean time) if manager Alonso takes the helm. Director Alonso’s first pending issue is, of course, the future of Harry Kane. His contract with Tottenham expires in June 2024. If he fails to renew his contract this summer, he may transfer.
Coach Alonso predicted that he would consider Patrick Schick, a Czech striker who is with Leverkusen, as an alternative to Kane. He scored a fantastic goal from the halfway line against Scotland at Euro 2020. Although he is not in his best form this season, his potential is being evaluated as limitless.
Another alternative is Adam Hlozek, a young man born in 2002. Having nested in Leverkusen this season, he has scored 7 goals in 38 appearances, and his potential is being recognized.
Tottenham’s defensive line reorganization is a must, not an option. Tottenham has allowed a whopping 15 goals in the last 4 matches (1 draw and 3 losses) and has fallen into an ‘automatic door’.
The Sun’s prediction is that coach Alonson can plan a ‘double sweep’ of Piero Incafie and Edmund Topsova, who belong to Leverkusen, who have already had their eyes on Tottenham. Jonathan Tahdo is also there. It is a ‘cheaper option’ than those who ride.
To bolster the attacking side, 20-year-old ‘wonderkid’ Florian Birz and Moussa Diaby are alternatives. ‘The Sun’ predicted that ‘one of the two will be able to help Son Heung-min score a goal’. However, there was no name of Lee Kang-in (Mallorca).
In the case of central midfielders, Daichi Kamada from Japan, whose contract with Frankfurt expires after this season, and Real Sociedad’s Mikel Merino are being discussed. Right wingback Jeremy Frimpong and Werder Bremen’s Jiri Pavrenka as goalkeeper are number one.
Alonso was expected to use the same 3-4-3 system as former manager Antonio Conte. In the first option, Son Heung-min, Schick, and Birtz stand at the three-top. Ryan Sessegnon, Merino, Pierre-Emile Hoivier and Frimpong were expected to stand in the second line.
In the three-back, Cristian Romero along with Incapie and Topsova are lined up, and Pavrenka is guarding the goal.
Son Heung-min’s name was not erased even in the alternative best 11. Son Heung-min, Hlozek, and Diaby were listed as three-top players, and Sessegnon, Kamada, Rodrigo Bentancur, and Frimpong were named as midfielders. The three-back follows Incapie and Romero, and Pavrenka puts on the goalkeeper’s gloves.
Coach Alonso, who led Spain’s Real Sociedad B until last season, took the helm of Leverkusen in October of last year. He took Leverkusen from the relegation zone at the beginning of the season to 6th place. He also led the Europa League to the semifinals 메이저사이트.
He played in 114 A-matches as a member of the Spanish national team during his active career, and is a ‘Wolcle’ midfielder who played for Liverpool, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.
