Son Heung-min has been named the best captain in soccer.
“In soccer, the captain has a special role and responsibility on and off the field. They must possess certain qualities, including leadership,” and listed the top five players who have been named club captains for the 2023/24 season.
Son Heung-min, who will lead Tottenham as captain from this season, was ranked third.
“With Hugo Lloris set to leave Tottenham, it was expected that Harry Kane would be the new captain,” says Sport Kida. However, his departure to Bayern Munich has left a void. Coach Enze Postecoglou has named Son Heung-min as captain.”
“He has been at Tottenham since 2015 and is a very popular player with both players and fans alike,” he said, noting that he deserved the captaincy.
“Tottenham will be relying heavily on Son this season,” he added, “and will be expecting Kane to score his usual goals. It will be interesting to see how he performs as captain,” he said.
Postecoglou will need to appoint a new captain, and he sees Son as the right man for the job.
After winning the Tottenham captain’s armband, Son said, “This season is important. As captain, it’s important for everyone to take responsibility and come to training sessions with a good thaw,” he said.
“Let’s stick together and take the same steps towards the same goal. Let’s move forward for our important season,” he said to the players.
Postecoglou’s appointment of Son as Spurs captain came as a surprise to some.
“Heung-min has not been a very vocal player at Tottenham,” said Football London. That’s why many people were surprised to see him named captain by Postecoglou.”
“The decision to make Son Heung-min captain was met with surprise among those inside Tottenham,” said British outlet The Boot Room. He hasn’t been part of the team’s leadership group in recent years,” and “they were baffled to see him relishing the responsibility.”
However, Son has made his presence felt as Tottenham’s captain. It’s only been two games, but he’s already made an impact by showing class.
Heung-min reportedly texted vice-captain James Maddison to suggest that he gather in a circle in front of the away fans to make them feel part of the team. 안전놀이터
“He talked to the fans and really got them going,” Maddison said in admiration.
He also thanked the away fans for their support in the opening game against Brentford by taking the players out to greet them.
With Son Heung-min making his presence felt as captain, Postecoglou was praised for making the right choice.
In addition to Son, Reece James (Chelsea/1st), Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United/2nd), Nacho Fernandez (Real Madrid/3rd), and Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool/5th) made the list.
