Football London, a British media, raised questions about the decline in physical strength of Tottenham Hotspur players in the second half.
Tottenham lost 1-3 in the 2022/23 season Premier League round 37 home game against Brentford held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 20th (Korean time).
Tottenham, who took the lead with Harry Kane’s free kick goal in the 8th minute of the first half, collapsed by conceding three goals in the second half. With 17 wins, 6 draws and 14 losses, they fell to 8th place in the league with 57 points. He was in danger of not being able to participate in competitions organized by UEFA (European Football Federation) next season.
After the game, British Football London raised questions about the appearance of the players who played poorly in the second half, unlike the first half.
Football London said, “Those who saw Kane and Son Heung-min collapse or vomit during physical training in Korea last summer are now having a hard time understanding why the players can’t play 95 minutes.”
Tottenham, who visited Korea to participate in the Coupang Play Series last year, collapsed due to intensive physical training by former coach Antonio Conte.
Tottenham players, including Son Heung-min and Kane, collapsed on the training ground due to the hot summer weather and hellish training in Korea, and photos were uploaded on the club’s official website.
But there was no hell training effect. Tottenham this season showed a lack of back heart. There were many matches where the opening goal was conceded, but there were also frequent matches where the performance was good in the first half but collapsed in the second half.
This match against Brentford was a representative game that showed a sharp dullness in the second half.
The media pointed out that “Tottenham had 22 shots, 8 shots on target, and 62% of possession, but it was useless. Brentford made 3 of 4 shots.”안전놀이터
He added, “All the Tottenham players who were impressive in the first half were not present in the second half. Even Oliver Skip, who had a good relationship with Yves Bisuma, had poor ball control.”
Then he took out the dishonorable record. The media criticized, “This is the second time I have scored 60 league goals and 60 goals in one season. The first, of course, was Tottenham in the 2007/08 season.”
