Tottenham manager Angie Postecoglou once again reiterated Son Heung-min’s “captaincy qualifications”.
Tottenham will face Chelsea at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England, on Saturday afternoon (local time).
It’s the 11th round of the 2023-2024 English Premier League (EPL) season. Tottenham currently leads the league with eight wins and two draws.
This makes the game against Chelsea a big deal for Mauricio Pochettino, who managed Spurs in their heyday.
After leaving Tottenham, Pochettino went on to coach Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
He was sacked from PSG.
He took over at Chelsea this season.
For Spurs fans, it’s the return of a top manager who led them to the UEFA Champions League (UCL) final.
Spurs have been led by the play of Son Heung-min.
Son has been the captain of Tottenham this season after the departure of Harry Kane.
In terms of form, he is second in the league with eight goals.
Against Chelsea, Spurs will need a big performance from Son.
Four days before the home game against Chelsea, Postecoglou held his official press conference at the Tottenham Hotspur Training Center.
He was asked to give his assessment of Son’s role as captain.
Postecoglou backed Son, calling him “the right choice.”
He added: “Heung-min and I knew each other indirectly, not directly. 카지노사이트
He was part of the world I came from (Asia & Oceania) and I knew him as a soccer player,” he explained.
“I love the way he plays for his club and national team, the way people talk about him, and the way we work with him here,” he said.
Postecoglou continued. “I have no doubt that Heung-min has all the qualities to be a great leader, whether it’s a captain or part of a leadership group,” he said. “
With the departure of Harry Kane, there was a huge void in terms of presence, both on and off the field.
We thought Son Heung-min was a really good choice to fill that void,” he said of the captain’s choice.
“He’s got a lot of support from a lot of senior players in the team, including Romero and Maddison,” said Postecoglou, “so I think he’s in a good place.
It could be an added responsibility.
But he really enjoys playing soccer and wants to make an impact.”
