A British media got angry at Son Heung-min (31), who blamed himself for his teacher’s hardship.
Court Offside, a British media, reported on the 30th (Korean time), “Son Heung-min felt responsible for manager Antonio Conte (54메이저놀이터)’s hardship,” and reported Son Heung-min’s interview after the match against Uruguay.
On the 27th, coach Conte terminated his contract with Tottenham by mutual agreement and left the team. In response, Son Heung-min finished the game against Uruguay held in Seoul on the 28th and said, “As a player, I am very sorry. Coach Conte is a world-class leader and I think we had a really happy journey. I should have done better. I should have helped the team more. I feel responsible for Conte’s departure because I couldn’t give him an honest feeling.”
But the media thought differently. Considering what coach Conte had done, the position was that he was solely responsible for the hardship.
Court Offside said, “Son Heung-min only scored 6 goals in the league this season, but Conte’s actions after the Southampton match did not help either Son Heung-min or Tottenham. It is excessive,” he said coldly.
In fact, in this case, Conte has not received much advocacy. This is because of the interview with Southampton after the recent English Premier League (EPL) round 28 match (3-3 draw). At the time, coach Conte said, “Tottenham haven’t won any trophies in the past 20 years. 11 players have played, but there are selfish players. I do,” he said resolutely. There was no talk of his own mistakes or Yong-in’s technique that was repeatedly pointed out this season. However, this remark did not get much sympathy, and rather only raised rumors of discord.
In the end, Tottenham decided to dismiss manager Conte, and the companionship that started in November 2021 and lasted for about a year and four months ended like that.
