Son Heung-min (31) bowed his head even after winning the Tottenham Hotspur ‘Goal of the Year’ voted by the fans.

Tottenham lost 1-3 to Brentford in the 37th round of the Premier League in the 2022-2023 season held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 20th (Korean time). As a result, Tottenham fell to 8th place with 17 wins, 6 draws and 14 losses (57 points), and was in danger of failing to advance to the European competition next season.

The start was neat. In the 8th minute of the first half, from a free kick opportunity, Harry Kane scored a fantastic goal to give Tottenham the lead. However, in the second half, Tottenham was beaten by Brian Mbemo one after another, and in the 43rd minute of the second half, Oliver Skip took the ball by mistake and gave Yoan Wissa a key goal.

It was a disappointing come-from-behind defeat. In the end, Tottenham fell on its knees in the last home game of this season, conceding three goals with an uneasy defense. Tottenham fans who visited the stadium started to leave even before the final whistle blew.

After the game, Tottenham held awards ceremonies such as ‘Player of the Year’ and ‘Goal of the Year’. Kane won the Fans’ Player of the Year, Players’ Player of the Year, and Junior Players’ Player of the Year, and Son Heung-min was awarded the Goal of the Year voted by the official supporters.

The goal that gave Son the award was his 100th Premier League goal against Brighton last month. At that time, after catching the ball from the left outside the box in the 10th minute of the first half, he pierced the corner of the goal with a fantastic right-footed kick.

With this goal, Son Heung-min became the first Asian player to score 100 Premier League goals. It is only the 34th record in the history of the league. Among active players, only five are Son Heung-min and Kane, Mohamed Salah (Liverpool), Jamie Vardy (Leicester City) and Raheem Sterling (Chelsea).

Son Heung-min scored the 4th goal of the year in Tottenham’s career with a meaningful goal, but he could not laugh to his heart’s content. He didn’t even smile when taking his commemorative picture.

After the game, Son Heung-min said, “It was very important to the fans and the current team standings to win the last home game. Even though we played well in the first half, we made a lot of mistakes in the second half and seemed to be complacent. “It’s unacceptable, but it’s so disappointing that it’s being repeated. I’m really sorry to the fans for ending the last home game like this,” he bowed his head.먹튀검증

He continued, “We are facing the last game. The result of today’s match is quite unacceptable. The last match will also be difficult. (Opponent) Leeds is also in a difficult situation, so this is the moment we need to pay attention to. It’s good to recover well. I will do my best to prepare to show the game.”

Finally, Son Heung-min said, “I am always very grateful to the fans. Many Korean fans came to the stadium today. Also, I feel that many fans are cheering for me on TV every moment, every week, and every game. It may not be enough to say thank you, but everyone. This is the moment when I need your support the most. I have no shame, but I would be grateful if you could support me one more time. Thank you for supporting me and the players who were lacking throughout the season.”
