Villa check + absence of playmaker’ Son Heung-min’s reason for being offside 4 times in one game
This is Sports Chosun.com reporter, Bang 토스카지노Jae-won correspondent] Son Heung-min (Tottenham)’s main weapon is fast feet and shooting. He infiltrates the back space. The pass comes in and faces the goalkeeper. And shoot, shake the net. It is a world-class goal equation shown by Son Heung-min. As I dig into the back space, I have a close relationship with ‘offside’. A momentary difference can result in offside or onside. Last season, Son Heung-min was caught offside a total of 17 times. His record was equivalent to 10th in the league.
Such Son Heung-min was repeatedly caught offside in the 36th round of the Premier League between Aston Villa and Tottenham held at Villa Park in Birmingham, England on the 13th. He was offside on four occasions during the 90 minutes of play. Why?
First, Aston Villa’s response was good. From Aston Villa’s point of view, Son Heung-min was a ‘natural enemy’. Son Heung-min scored 6 goals and 1 assist in 6 matches with Aston Villa. In particular, he scored 5 goals at Villa Park. Aston Villa pondered over neutralizing Son Heung-min. It was judged that it would be difficult to block Son Heung-min’s speed head-on. I chose a detour. I decided to disrupt the pass to Son Heung-min as much as possible. McGinn and Douglas Lewis took on this task. Tottenham put a lot of pressure on his back. I tried to delay the timing of the pass. hit The pass to Son Heung-min was half a beat late. There were times when the pass didn’t go in.
There was no player to stab the right pass. Tottenham came out with a 3-4-3 model. Hoivier and Skip stood in the center of the waist. The forward pass of the two was disappointing. He also lacked confidence. Instead of passing forward, he gave the ball back or to the side. Son Heung-min, who ran forward, was only using his mind. It was frustrating, but Harry Kane came down himself. And sprayed the pass. However, as Kane stepped back, the direct check on Son Heung-min became more severe. Richarlison, who started as a striker, had to help from the side. However, Richarlison’s movement was not very good. In the end, he could not help either Son Heung-min or Tottenham.
Son Heung-min regretted this situation at a meeting with reporters after the game, saying, “I should have matched the running timing a little better.”
