‘Tottenham Legend’ Klinsman celebrates Son Heung-min’s 100th EPL goal “Congratulations, Sonny!”
Tottenham Hotspur legend and South Korean national football team coach Jurgen Klinsman left a congratulatory message for Son Heung-min.
Director Klinsman wrote “Congratulations SONNY!!” on his personal SNS on the 10th.
Previously, Son Heung-min started against Brighton in the 30th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 8th. And he made history. In the 10th minute of the first half, Son Heung-min, who received Ivan Perisic’s pass, attempted a ‘proprietary’ kick in front of the penalty box. After drawing a fantastic trajectory toward the far post, the ball was sucked in with delight.
With this, Son Heung-min achieved ‘EPL 100 points’ in about 7 years and 7 months after making his debut in September 2015. This is a record that only 34 people have ever had, including Son Heung-min, and is the first Asian player. In addition, he joined the ‘100-50 Club’. Against Brighton, he played 260 EPL games and added one goal, joining the ranks for the 19th time.
It was more meaningful because coach Klinsman congratulated him. Manager Klinsman had a career playing for Tottenham during his active career. He is remembered as an eternal legend by Tottenham fans. He didn’t play a lot, but he made a huge impact.
Klinsman scored 29 goals and 14 assists in 50 official games in the 1994-95 season, the first season of Tottenham. And after one season, he moved to Bayern Munich and was regretful. After passing through Munich and Sampdoria, Klinsmann returned to Tottenham, which was in danger of relegation in the second half of the 1997-98 season. Then he saved the team dramatically by making a big success scoring 9 goals in 15 EPL matches. 메이저놀이터
After his retirement, he entered the leadership path and went through the German national team, Bayern Munich, the US national team, and Hertha Berlin, and took the lead of the Korean national team from this year. As a result, the former icon of Tottenham and the current legend will accompany them.
Coach Klinsman said at the inauguration press conference earlier, “I am from Tottenham, so I watch all of Tottenham’s games. I am also a big fan of Son Heung-min.” And against Colombia, which was his first A-match appearance in March, Son Heung-min scored multiple goals and drew 2-2.
