‘Son Sessional’ Son Heung-min (Tottenham) wears the captain’s armband at Klinsman.
According to an official from the Korea Football Association on the 21st, Son Heung-min was confirmed as captain by national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann on the same day.
In an interview conducted at the Paju National Football Team Training Center (NFC) this morning, Son Heung-min said, “I don’t know yet” to the captain-related question.
However, it seems that coach Klinsman had Son Heung-min in mind as captain right after taking office.
Son Heung-min has been captaining the national team for the fifth year, replacing Ki Sung-yong (Seoul) right after the 2018 World Cup in Russia. He led the way to the round of 16 at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
If Son Heung-min wears the captain’s armband until the 2026 World Cup in North and Central America, he will serve as the team’s leader for eight years. 먹튀검증
Son Heung-min made his national team debut in a friendly against Syria in December 2010 and scored 35 goals in 108 A-matches until the World Cup round of 16 against Brazil.
In an interview that day, Son Heung-min said, “I have reached the finals and semi-finals in the Asian Cup, and I have been eliminated in the quarterfinals. It is a big dream to bring a trophy to Korea.”
