Postecoglou names new captain to replace Kane
Son Heung-min interim captain for 2020 “I want to do it again”
With the departure of last season’s captain, Hugo Lloris, and vice-captain Harry Kane, 카지노사이트 there is speculation that Son Heung-min (Tottenham) could become the new captain of the English Premier League club.
With Harry Kane’s departure imminent, Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou was tight-lipped when asked about the new captain during his pre-match press conference before the Premier League opener on Nov. 11 (ET).
“It’s a decision. Of course, I’m not going to talk about it,” he said with a laugh, before revealing that “tomorrow we will go through the process of choosing the captain.”
“It’s not a leadership popularity contest. It’s not an election,” he said, adding, “We’re going to have a strong leader, and we’re going to have helpers with him.”
As such, the captain’s armband could be worn by a number of experienced Tottenham veterans, including Son, Eric Dier, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, and Ben Davies.
Son is a strong contender. Son wore the captain’s armband in the final preseason game against Watford on September 6, 2020. Heung-min wore the captain’s armband in the final pre-season game against Watford on September 6, 2020. At the time, he said, “I’m proud of it, and I want to be captain again someday.”
Like Son Heung-min, Lee Kang-in has also captained Valencia in La Liga. Lee wore the captain’s armband in a pre-season trial against Levante in August 2020. However, he didn’t get much playing time and moved to Mallorca the following year.
The first South Korean player to wear the captain’s armband on the European stage was Park Ji-Sung. 온라인카지노 While playing for Manchester United in the Premier League, Park wore the captain’s armband in the 2012 Europa League round of 32 against Ajax.
While he was an interim captain at United, Park was named full captain in 2012 when he moved to Queens Park Rangers. It was the first time a Korean player had ever captained a team in a major European league. However, Park was relieved of the captaincy following the sacking of Mark Hughes and the appointment of Harry Radnap as manager. Instead, Radnap handed the captaincy to Ryan Nelson, a white defender from New Zealand.
Current national team midfielder Hwang In-beom (Olympiacos) also served as an interim captain while playing for Rubin Kazan in the Russian League. In October 2021, when the captain went down with an injury and the vice-captain waited on the bench, 카지노사이트존 Hwang In-bum donned the captain’s armband and excelled in the defense.
