[스포츠서울 김용일기자] “It is inappropriate to mention in the current situation.”
Son Heung-min (29, Tottenham) was spared about the contract extension, one of the biggest concerns this season.
Son Heung-min and Wolfsberger attended a press conference held at the Tottenham Hotspur Training Center in London, England on the 17th (Korean time), one day ahead of the first leg of the European Football Federation (UEFA) Europa League round of 32 in the 2020-2021 season.
‘Would you like to renew the contract?’ was the first question. However, Son Heung-min replied with’no comment’. “It is inappropriate to mention renewal in the current situation. It is only time to focus on the game and the team.” He said, “I am currently happy in Tottenham. I am working hard as a player and a team member. It’s difficult to say about renewing the contract,” he drew.
Son Heung-min, who signed a contract with Tottenham until June 2023, is attracting attention from other league clubs with her’World Class’ performance this season. Tottenham, who has become urgent, has been negotiating a renewal contract since October last year, but it has been delayed due to financial difficulties arising from the aftermath of Corona 19. In recent years, he was courted by Son Heung-min’s role model, Cristiano Ronaldo, played by Italy’s Serie A Juventus, and his reign rose to the surface.
Son Heung-min showed his intention to focus solely on the game, leaving the’renewal issue’ behind. He has already achieved a tie record for the season’s most attacking points, achieved last season with 17 goals and 13 assists in all competitions so far this season.
