Tottenham coach: “Johnson is out… Son Heung-min and Madison need to improve their condition.”
It seems like dark clouds are forming slightly over the challenge of ‘Sonsational’ Son Heung-min (Tottenham) to score his ‘200th career goal in Europe.’
On the 30th (Korean time), Tottenham, a member of the English Professional Football Premier League (EPL),
announced the EPL match between Liverpool and EPL in the early morning of October 1st under the title ‘Update from Australian coach Angie Postekoglou on Madison, Johnson and Son Heung-min’ on their website. 온라인카지노사이트
The team’s injured situation was reported ahead of the 7th round.
Tottenham said, “Son Heung-min and James Maddison, who were replaced early last weekend due to concerns about injuries during a 2-2 draw with Arsenal, trained this week,” and added, “Coach Postekoglou is checking the physical condition of Son Heung-min and Maddison ahead of the Liverpool match.
“I emphasized that we need to check once more,” he explained.
Son Heung-min and Maddison led the team to a 2-2 draw by scoring two goals in the away match against Arsenal in the 2023-2024 EPL 6th round on the 24th.
Madison assisted all of Son Heung-min’s multiple goals.
The two were replaced somewhat early in the 34th minute of the second half by Richarlison and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, respectively.
It was a preemptive measure due to concerns about injuries, and it is known that he did not complete training this week.
Coach Postekoglou said, “Son Heung-min and Maddison were not in good condition after the Arsenal game,” and added, “They trained today, and they exceeded the standard we needed.
However, both of them need to improve their condition,” he explained.
Accordingly, Son Heung-min, who is only one goal away from achieving his 200th career goal on the European stage,
is in a situation where he has to challenge for the record in less than perfect physical condition.
Last weekend against Arsenal.
Attacker Brennan Johnson, who injured his hamstring, was confirmed to be sidelined.
Coach Postekoglou said, “It is not a serious injury,
but we have decided not to play him in the game against Liverpool.”
