SON, aren’t you hot?Tottenham ‘breathes’ in Korea ‘breathing hard’

Except for Son Heung-min, Tottenham Hotspur players are experiencing South Korea’s “steam heat.”

Tottenham posted images of players training in the heat of Korea on its official Instagram on the 11th (Korea Standard Time). Tottenham players who entered Korea on the 10th are currently training at the Seoul World Cup Stadium.

Son Heung-min, who has not returned to the UK even after finishing his national team friendly schedule in June after returning home from the season, also joined his teammates and began Tottenham’s pre-season training in earnest. However, Tottenham players seemed to be struggling with the heat of Korea for the first time.

In Korea, the “steamed heat” with high temperature and humidity has been rampant every day. Striker Harry Kane, who is training in this heat, breathed hard and Dejan Kouloussky cooled off by spraying water on his head.

On the other hand, Son Heung-min was seen training with a somewhat reminiscent look on his face as he was used to training in this heat, causing laughter from domestic soccer fans. Before joining Tottenham’s teammates, Son Heung-min was spotted jogging every day on the bike path along the Han River near his residence.

Tottenham will hold an open training day and youth clinic at the Seoul World Cup Stadium today and play a friendly match against the team K League on the 13th. After playing a friendly match against La Liga powerhouse Sevilla FC at Suwon World Cup Stadium on the 16th, he plans to return to Europe after finishing his schedule in Korea.

Tottenham’s next destination after the Korean tour is Scotland. After a friendly match against Rangers FC in Scotland on the 24th, Tottenham will fly to Haifa, Israel, to finish the preseason with a showdown with AS Roma led by former Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho on the 31st.

Moura’s “Large Hanger” appears. “Amazing welcome! “Thank you for your love”

Lucas Moura, who helped Son Heung-min’s top scorer, also appeared. Moura thanked the fans for their welcome.

Tottenham arrived at Incheon International Airport at around 4 p.m. on the 10th by flight KE9918. A total of 28 Tottenham players boarded the plane to Korea. Ivan Perisic, Fraser Foster, Yves Bissuma and Hishalisson, who wore Tottenham uniforms through the transfer window this summer, were also included.

Major players were also included. Captain Hugo Lloris, Dejan Kulusevsky and Rodrigo Bentancourt also arrived at Incheon International Airport, including best friend Harry Kane. Some players appeared with the national flag. It’s Moura. Moura appeared at the arrival hall with Hishalisong holding the Korean flag.

For Korean fans, Moura is bound to be a grateful player. Moura assisted Son Heung-min’s 22nd goal in the final match of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2021-22 season against Norwich City in May.

At that time, Son Heung-min was competing with Mohamed Salah as the top scorer. When one goal was needed, Moura, who was substituted, passed Son Heung-min by a fantastic turn, and Son Heung-min calmly finished and shook the net.

Son Heung-min was able to ease the burden with the goal. Son Heung-min, who became lighter, scored a multi-goal and his 23rd goal of the season through a sharp wind kick in the so-called “Son Heung-min Zone” in the 30th minute of the second half. In the end, Son Heung-min became the joint top scorer with Salah and earned a golden boot.

South Korean fans welcomed Moura, who helped Son Heung-min become the top scorer. Moura released a video on her personal SNS story on the 10th. In the video uploaded by Moura, Korean fans were waiting with Moura’s large girdle.

Moura immediately approached her fans and signed her uniform. In the past, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) uniforms also appeared. Later, a fan handed Moura a shopping bag containing refreshments, and Moura gladly received a gift.

Meanwhile, the Tottenham squad will face the team’s K League for the first time in the pre-season at Seoul World Cup Stadium at 8 p.m. on the 13th. He will play Sevilla at Suwon World Cup Stadium three days later.


Tottenham’s future, which left, suggests a possibility of a return…”Manchester United – Arsenal’s talent”

Will they be able to reunite in two years?

“Arsenal wants to recruit South Hampton defender Kyle Walker-Peters (26),” said British media The Bootroom on the 11th (Korea Standard Time). Manchester United are also keeping an eye on his situation.

Walker-Peters was once the future of Tottenham Hotspur. Expectations were high for the right fullback. It was expected to fill the vacancy of Kyle Walker, 32, who left for Manchester City.

The debut of the adult stage was not easy. Walker-Peters made his first appearance in the 2018 UEFA Champions League match against Barcelona. At that time, he made a mistake seven minutes into the game and gave up a run to his opponent.

When I was sluggish in the first game, chances rarely came. Walker-Peters has made only nine starts in the English Premier League (PL) in two and a half years. He also lost in competition with Kieran Trippier (31) and Serge Aurier (29). Walker-Peters left Tottenham in the winter 2020 transfer window.

When he left the team, his skills were in full bloom. Southampton coach Ralph Hasen Whittle (54) used Walker-Peters as a key defender. After growing up, he even made it to the England national team. He was also a key player for Southampton last season. He scored two goals and four assists in 37 games.

Now he stands out as a big club player. According to “The Bootroom,” Tottenham’s North London rival Arsenal and traditional powerhouse Manchester United are aiming for him. The possibility of using Walker-Peters, which can play up to the left fullback, was greatly increased. British media ‘Sky Sports’ commentator Paul Merson once described him as “a completely outstanding player.”

It is also possible to return to Tottenham. The Athletic, a sports media outlet, said, “Tottenham can bring Walker-Peters back. When he moved to Southampton, he added a bye-back clause. The transfer fee is 30 million pounds (about 46.7 billion won).

Attention is focusing on whether to invoke the buyback clause in the summer transfer market. “Tottenham is aiming for Middlesbrough defender Jed Spence (21), but negotiations may drag on for a long time.” Antonio Conte, 52, said, “We may have to consider a new option.


Kim Yeon-kyung’s request to return to Korean National University → Kim Yeon-kyung’s answers are forsaken by the association…Why?

Volleyball Empress Kim Yeon-kyung has returned to Heungkuk Life. What about returning to the national team?

Among volleyball fans, Kim Yeon-kyung is eager to return to the national team. Even volleyball players say that Kim Yeon-kyung is the only one who can save the “crisis women’s volleyball.”

What does the Korea Volleyball Association think about Kim Yeon-kyung’s selection? For now, it has been confirmed that Cesar is not on the list of 16 national team members to be dispatched to the upcoming World Championships in September. I checked with multiple coaches who attended the meeting with Cesar on the 6th, but there was no name on the list of 16 players.

Then was the volleyball association letting go? No, it is said that he made secret contact with Kim Yeon-kyung. It is said that Kim Yeon-kyung was so busy that she couldn’t meet him and was connected after several phone calls.

In particular, the volleyball association’s women’s performance improvement director is Park Ki-joo, Kim Yeon-kyung’s teacher at Hanbom High School. Coach Park reportedly contacted Kim Yeon-kyung.

Coach Park recently said in a phone call with My Daily, “I officially asked Kim Yeon-kyung to return to the national team.”

However, Kim Yeon-kyung’s answer was firm. Director Park explained that Kim Yeon-kyung refused, saying, “It is a process that must be experienced once anyway.”

Kim Yeon-kyung has served the national team for 17 years. And after the last Tokyo Olympics, the national team announced that it would be no longer weird.

However, South Korea’s women’s volleyball team was the only one among the 16 participating countries in the VNL that ended earlier this month to suffer a loss of all 12 games and a draw.

That’s why the association begged Kim Yeon-kyung to help play women’s volleyball in crisis.

Kim Yeon-kyung will return to the national team againEven if you retire, you have to go through the process again, so if you are going to go through it anyway, it would be better to go through it as soon as possible.It means, “If you get hit, it’s better to get hit quickly.”

It is said that director Park Ki-joo gave up Kim Yeon-kyung’s return to the national team because Kim Yeon-kyung’s intention was so firm.

Meanwhile, Kim Yeon-kyung said at a press conference to return to Korea in Hongcheon, Gangwon-do, on the 8th, “It is positive that the national team has shown a good performance as it goes forward in the VNL,” adding, “We needed to go and practice.” I think if I supplement well and prepare well for the world championships, I will show better performance than VNL.”

As Kim Yeon-kyung said, I believe the national team will perform better in the world championships than in the VNL. Because it is the women’s national team that has no place to fall further, so of course, it has no choice but to show a “better appearance.” Of course, it is a separate matter from passing the qualifying round at the world championships.
