Son Heung-min signs life as Tottenham legend

It seems to be solidifying with Son Heung-min and mid- to long-term company.

It was argued that Son Heung-min’s English Premier League team Tottenham Hotspur’s activation of a one-year extension option under the contract with Son Heung-min is part of a suspension for future contract negotiations. They claim that although they will implement the option, they will be able to sign a long-term contract soon. As Tottenham highly recognizes Son Heung-min’s value as a global brand, it is imperative to sign a long-term contract with him.

“Spurs Web,” which reports Tottenham’s news, said on the 27th (Korea Standard Time), “The reason behind Tottenham’s implementation of the one-year extension option is to improve its negotiation position in the middle of discussing a new contract with Son Heung-min,” adding, “Tottenham expects to sign a mid- to long-term contract with Son Heung-min before the start of the new season.”

I won’t let Son finish his contract

It is a complete reversal of 180 degrees. Earlier, just two days after it was reported that Tottenham would invoke the option of extending one year to sell out Son, a “hopeful” opinion emerged, reversing this.

Football Insider, a British media outlet that continues to track Son’s contract renewal, said on the 25th, “Tottenham will implement a one-year contract extension attached to the contract to ensure that Son can receive a large transfer fee,” adding, “Defensive player Alan Hutton, who played for Tottenham and Scotland Rangers, insisted that he would not let Son finish his contract.”

Son has one year left before his contract with Tottenham ends this summer. He claimed that if the contract is not extended, he will enter the final season, preventing Tottenham from being at a disadvantage and activating the extension option with Son in order to “cash up Son Heung-min.”

“I think the club put a clause in their contract to protect themselves,” Hutton said. “If Tottenham chooses an option, (Son Heung-min) will be given two seasons. If someone else comes in for him during that period, he could receive a transfer fee that Tottenham feel is worth to him.”

The report seemed to clear up the debate between Tottenham and Son Heung-min’s contract.

The first report on a one-year extension option was made last month. “Tottenham has decided to invoke the option of extending its current contract with captain Son Heung-min until 2026,” global sports media 토토사이트 said, adding that the team will only invoke the option of extending the contract for one year, not the option for a long-term contract.

It appeared to extend the contract until the summer of 2026

Tottenham was expected to extend his contract until the summer of 2026, invoking the option of extending his contract by one year. Then, the interpretation that Son could even seek to break up with him next summer, when he turns 33.

The view that Son will be sold is not something that Tottenham cannot understand in terms of money. Son denied that he was willing to go even if he was offered an offer from the Saudi Arabian League, which he has been receiving since last summer. He even put out a quote that says, “The captain of the Korean national team does not go to Saudi Arabia.” However, unlike Son who gives up a large salary, if Tottenham sends Son Heung-min, 33, it is possible to recover a considerable amount of the transfer fee or annual salary that has been paid to Son Heung-min.

The Saudi league is aggressive in recruiting players around the same age as Son. It offered more than 100 million pounds to Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, who is the same age as Son, and Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne, who is a year older than Son. Some claim that Salah and De Bruyne are better performers than Son, but it is not strange to say that Son is also offered a total of 100 billion won from the Middle East.

However, a new opinion has emerged. Analysts say that the invocation of the option to extend one year with Son is a preliminary step for Tottenham to secure a stable new contract.

He proved to be Tottenham’s best player in leadership and skills.

Son was chosen as the club’s first non-European captain under newly appointed Australian coach Ange Postecoglou last summer. He has also proven to be Tottenham’s best player in leadership and skills.

Son Heung-min was almost as influential as the coach on the ground, setting a mental example for the players both in good and bad times for Tottenham.

He was also the best in terms of play. He erased the “Son Heung-min’s decline” that had been proposed during the 2022-2023 season. Son scored 17 goals and 10 assists in the 2023-2024 season, achieving his third “10-10” in the Premier League. This is a milestone achieved by only six players including Son in the Premier League.

In terms of pure goals, he added 17 league goals and scored 120 goals in the Premier League alone, ranking 22nd in all-time goals along with Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard.

He has also rewritten the club’s history. Son has scored 162 goals since joining Tottenham, ranking fifth in the club’s history of goals overall. He has narrowed his gap with fourth place to 12 goals. He has also set a new record of playing in 400 matches for the 14th time in Tottenham’s career against West Ham United in April, and he also became the third player in the club to play in 300 Premier League matches against Liverpool last month.

There is a possibility that he will score more than 10 goals in the season.

The mood has changed. If Tottenham, which missed out on Harry Kane last summer, pushes away even Son, it will inevitably face huge difficulties in forming a club identity that is larger than a certain amount of cash right away. If necessary, Legend could also face huge losses in the mid- to long-term, giving the impression that it is a “buckling” team.

According to Son Heung-min’s recent management, even if he signs a three- to four-year contract, he is likely to score more than 10 goals in the season as he is now.

It seems a realistic way for Tottenham to extend its contract with club legend Son Heung-min to find a replacement for Son Heung-min. Attention is drawn to Tottenham’s decision this summer.

Son Ho-young, Yang Seok-hwan, and Jang Sung-woo are first-time All-Stars…

Son Ho-young, who has become a key infielder for the Lotte Giants after being traded, will play in the ‘Festival of Stars’ All-Star Game.

The KBO announced on Thursday the 26 manager’s picks to play in the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO All-Star Game.

The Dream All-Stars, led by KT manager Lee Kang-cheol, include William Cuevas, Kim Min-woo, Jang Sung-woo and Mel Rojas Jr. (all of KT), Moon Seung-won (SSG Landers), Lee Young-ha and Yang Suk-hwan (Doosan), Park Se-woong, Kim Won-joong, Jung Hwa-geun and Son Ho-young (Lotte), Lee Seung-hyun (No. 57) and Kim Ji-chan (Samsung Lions).

LG outfielder Kim Hyun-soo was named an All-Star for the 15th time in his career, tying Yang Jun-hyuk for the record for most All-Star selections.

This year’s KBO All-Star Game will be held on July 6 at SSG Landers Field in Incheon.

Football Coaches Association launches…”South Korean coach takes backseat to national team manager”

Seol Dong-sik, the first president of the Korea Football Coaches Association (KFA), has criticized the lack of attention given to domestic coaches in the selection process for the national soccer team’s head coach.

“Achievements such as the third-place finish at the 2012 London Olympics and the runner-up finish at the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup are proof that Korean coaches have excellent abilities,” Seol said at the inauguration ceremony of the Leaders Association held at The K Hotel Seoul in Seocho-gu, Seoul on Thursday afternoon.

He then expressed his disappointment that only foreign coaches are given attention in the selection process.

“It’s unfortunate that Korean coaches are not recognized in the selection process,” said Seol.

“In Southeast Asia, they are taking our coaches,” he said, highlighting the excellence of Korean coaches such as Shin Tae-yong, who leads Indonesia’s national team, Kim Pan-gon, who leads Malaysia’s national team, and former coaches Park Hang-seo and Kim Sang-sik, who lead Vietnam’s national team.

“Even young players who are playing in Europe were taught by Korean coaches in Korea during their school days, and they are becoming world-class players overseas,” Seol said, adding that this also shows the excellence of Korean coaches.

“How long will we continue to look around the world for a coach for the Korean national soccer team?” he asked, adding, “Why are our coaches not being recognized in the process of selecting a national team coach, and why should they be in the sixth or seventh position (relatively speaking).”

While urging the KFA to work harder to nurture and promote domestic coaches, Seol said he would continue to work with the organization.

“The KFA should take the lead in discovering world-class players and developing world-class masters,” he said, adding, “The Leadership Association will be a strong partner and supporter of the KFA.”

Meanwhile, the KFA’s National Power Enhancement Committee considered more than 100 candidates over the course of several months, but decided that it would be difficult to find a foreign coach with the level of prestige and skill that fans wanted.

Kim Do-hoon and Ulsan HD head coach Hong Myung-bo, who led the team on an interim basis for two A-Match matches in June, are the favorites to take over. 메이저토토사이트 순위

Federation of Sports Organizations Regrets Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism’s ‘limitation theory’

The Federation of Sports Organizations of the Korea Sports Federation (KOF) has expressed regret over comments made by Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Yoo In-chon that aim to divide the KOF and sports organizations just one month before the 2024 Paris Olympics.

The 82 member sports organizations of the Federation released a statement on the 24th, claiming that Yoo’s remarks at a meeting between the Korea Volleyball Association and women’s national retired players four days earlier that “the sports system centered on the Korea Sports Federation has reached its limits,” and that “we will ensure autonomy for each sports organization to build a healthy ecosystem with its own mid- to long-term vision, and we will definitely reform the budget support system,” actually conveyed the intention of controlling sports organizations through budget support.

They also pointed out that Yoo’s remarks are in line with the National Sports Promotion Act, which mandates the KFA to provide guidance and support for the businesses and activities of affiliated sports organizations and sports organizations for living sports.

With no ceasefire in sight, the two sides, including the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the KOC, are heading for a predictable all-out war in the run-up to the Paris Olympics.

The two sides are expected to go head-to-head again over explosive post-Olympic issues, including the KFA’s request to amend its bylaws to remove the limit on consecutive terms for sports organization heads and the MOC’s refusal to approve it, and the debate over the establishment of the National Sports Commission as a sports control tower. 스포츠토토사이트

Hwang Hee-chan signs 5-year long-term contract with Wolverhampton

Hwang Hee-chan returned from a career-high season in the Premier League and held his first in-house event. I had time to communicate with many soccer fans through the ‘Hwang Hee-chan Football Festival’.
Last winter, he signed a new five-year long-term contract with his current team, Wolverhampton, but he also strengthened his determination to keep moving forward.

In an interview ahead of the ‘Hwang Hee-chan Football Festival’ held at the Bucheon City Hall lawn square on the 22nd, Hwang Hee-chan said that he would like to continue to have time to communicate with fans.
Hwang Hee-chan performed his best since transferring to Wolverhampton, recording a career-high 12 goals and 3 assists in the Premier League in the 2023-2024 season.

Hwang Hee-chan performed his best since transferring to Wolverhampton, recording a career-high 12 goals and 3 assists in the Premier League in the 2023-2024 season.
It was his first double-figure score since breaking into the Premier League, despite missing a month and a half due to a hamstring injury at the end of February.

Hwang Hee-chan held an event to communicate with fans for the first time, and on this day, over 2,000 fans gathered and had time to communicate with Hwang Hee-chan.

Meeting with fans at the Hwang Hee-chan Football Festival

In January 2024, he was called up to the Korea national soccer team and participated in the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar Asian Cup.
Hwang Hee-chan missed the first two games due to a hamstring injury, but showed his strength by appearing in the third game against Malaysia.

In particular, in the quarterfinals against Australia, when the team was down 0-1, he scored a penalty kick equalizer in the second half of extra time, sending the game into overtime and laying the foundation for advancing to the semifinals.
Hwang Hee-chan actively met with fans during this year’s pre-season by holding a festival where he could communicate with fans for the first time.

On this day, the event venue set up on the grass plaza of Bucheon City Hall was crowded with more than 2,000 fans, according to the organizers.
Despite the pouring rain from the morning, fans’ love for Hwang Hee-chan was very great.

Hwang Hee-chan said, “I am so grateful that so many people came to visit us despite the hot and rainy weather.
“I’m also very happy to be able to hold a big festival in Bucheon, the city I grew up in and love,” he said. “I hope I have the opportunity to continue communicating with my fans.”

How do you feel about hosting the Hwang Hee-chan Football Festival event?

First of all, I would like to thank you so much for coming so many times despite the hot and rainy weather.
And I am very happy to be able to hold a big festival like this in Bucheon, where I grew up and love.
We will do our best to share good times with as many citizens and fans as possible, so I hope you enjoy it together and make many good memories.

What do you want to show at today’s event?

I came with my national team friends (Baek Seung-ho and Lee Jin-hyeon), so I think you can look forward to it and I will do my best to show you fun soccer.

Looking at Hwang Hee-chan, what would you say to young prospects who dream of becoming soccer players?

When I was young, I dreamed of watching the national team players and K-League brothers, and today, seeing young people, I feel like I have come a long way. If young people see me and can dream like that, I would be very happy and glad.
I also went to Kkachiul Elementary School in Bucheon, and while playing soccer hard at Kkachiul Elementary School, I became a national team player and a Premier League player. I want to give young people hope that they can do the same.
If I learn hard and do well today, I think I will be able to become a national team player, a K-League player, and a great player in the future.

Preparing for the new season

First of all, I rested well for the first week after the national team game.
So, starting this week, I’m starting to prepare again for the next season and I’m working out, but I took the weekend off to prepare for the festival and it’s really fun to meet my fans while resting.

Now I’m training on the areas I was lacking in last season, and next season will of course be the best stage, so it won’t be easy, but I want to become a better Hwang Hee-chan than last season.
I am working hard because I have a strong desire to always show a good performance to the fans who support me until the early hours of the morning, so it would be nice if you continue to support me in the future.

Do you want to play Wolverhampton in Korea?

Many big companies invite other European teams, so other big clubs come to Korea and play preseason and games.
I think it would be great if various media outlets and companies invite our team and provide a lot of support, and it would be great to play in Korea in front of many fans. I hope we have a good opportunity.

Do you have any attack point goals for next season?

To be honest, I have no desire to score a few goals.
I want to show the best version of myself that I can, and of course I want to do better than I did last season.

Of course, it may be a burden, but rather than a burden, it’s something I’ve done naturally, and I’ve always done those things to get to this point.
That’s why I really want to overcome myself and show a better side of myself.
