Son Heung-min, the ‘captain’ who broke his silence with a hat trick…”Thank you for your colleagues”
Son Heung-min, who started hunting for points in the new season by writing a hat trick, showed a special responsibility as the team’s captain.
Son Heung-min said in a local interview after an away match against Burnley in the fourth round of the Premier League (EPL) at Turf Moore in Burnley, England. We started with a pushback, but we fought back strongly.
In this game, Son Heung-min scored in the 16th minute of the first half, 18th minute of the second half, and 21st minute of the second half, leading the team’s 5-2 victory and 4 league unbeaten (3 wins and 1 draw) march.
Son Heung-min, who started on the front line, showed his scoring ability to his heart’s content while Hisharlisson, who was previously a front-line striker, was pushed to the bench due to sluggishness.
Son Heung-min, who said, “It’s hard to choose one of the three goals,” said, “The most important thing is that we got three points.”
He said, “I’m the captain, but there are a lot of great players around. They help me a lot,” he said, giving credit to his colleagues.
“My role is very easy. “I try to be an example, I try to smile, I try to be responsible both inside and outside the stadium,” he stressed.
Tottenham, which had been defeated by Fulham in the second round of the League Cup during the week, briefly cut off its unbeaten rise in the previous three league games, was encouraged by the captain’s great victory.
Son Heung-min stressed, “We want to move forward and still want to get better.”
After the game, Son Heung-min celebrated himself by posting a picture of his three fingers spreading out to commemorate the hat trick on his social media.
In an Instagram post, he said, “I’m proud of the amazing performance the players have shown in difficult stadiums. “We are having an A match break in a good atmosphere,” he said, expressing his gratitude for the fans’ support.
In the video posted on the club’s account, Son Heung-min said, “It was a difficult expedition, but I could feel your support. “I’m happy to win three points, and it’s special to write a hat trick,” he said, expressing his gratitude again.
