Britain’s Metro reported on the 12th that Tottenham captain Son Heung-min will leave the country to play in the Asian Cup after the Premier League clash with Bournemouth on the 31st. 토토
He added, “He will potentially miss five games. The Asian Cup will be held from Jan. 12 to Feb. 10, and South Korea is one of the tournament’s favorites. Son may not return until his showdown with Wolverhampton on Feb. 17.”
The Korea Football Association guided the team on its upcoming schedule related to the 2023 Asian Football Confederation Asian Cup on Wednesday. Jürgen Klinsmann, who is challenging for the top spot for the first time in 64 years, will conduct a call-up drill near Seoul from June 26 for the main players of Korea. The training list will be announced on June 18.
The final roster will be announced in the last week of December. After that, the team will undergo off-season training in the United Arab Emirates on Jan. 2 and begin adapting to the local climate. An official warm-up match will take place on Jan. 6. The opponent is undecided. After completing domestic and UAE training, Klinsmann will enter Qatar on Jan. 10. Most overseas players will join from off-season training in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates.
There is also great interest in the UK regarding the timing of Son Heung-min’s joining. This is because Son Heung-min has a great influence on Tottenham. Son Heung-min has scored 10 league goals this season, changing to a frontline striker position. In the showdown with Newcastle United on the 11th, he played as a left wing forward for the first time in a long time, scoring one goal and two assists, leading his team to victory.
Of course, there is a possibility that the team will undergo a coordination process. During the 2019 AFC Asian Cup, Tottenham and the Korea Football Association agreed not to play the first and second group matches through collaboration. Son Heung-min joined the team from the third game and played the matches. He has ample potential in this year’s event as well.
If Son Heung-min starts the first round, he must leave Tottenham for Qatar before January 15. However, Tottenham only has to play the third round of the FA Cup in England against Burnley before January 15 after the match against Bournemouth. Assuming that he will join the team from the third round, he can even have a PL showdown with Manchester United on January 15.
If Klinsmann makes it to the finals of the tournament, he will miss as many as six or as few as three. Until the finals on Feb. 10, Tottenham could play the fourth round of England’s FA Cup third-round win over Brentford home, Everton away, Brighton home, and Burnley.
