Tottenham in the English Premier League (EPL) this season are struggling.
In the league, it was pushed to 5th place, and the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL), FA Cup, and League Cup were all eliminated early. Eventually, manager Antonio Conte stepped down. And many media and experts pointed out that the reason for Tottenham’s sluggishness was Conte’s tactics and strategy.
However, it was also argued that it was not Conte’s fault. ‘ESPN Deportes’ emphasized the difference between the good last season and this bad season, saying, “It should not be concluded that Coach Conte failed. Last season, Coach Conte was good, and Tottenham was also good.” Coach Conte is still there, but the performance was not good.
This media found the reason from the players. Representatively, two strikers were pointed out as the culprits of the sluggish performance. It was Son Heung-min and Dejan Kulusevski.
The media said, “The decisive reason why Tottenham did not do well this season is Son Heung-min and Kulusevski. This is because the two players performed significantly out of their level this season. Son Heung-min and Kulusevski were Tottenham’s stars last season. However, this season, the two players did not even show the appearance of average strikers in the EPL.”
The media continued, “In other words, Tottenham’s failure this season is not a total failure of Conte. Conte made good use of Son Heung-min and Kulusevski last season. Considering what we saw last year, Conte’s performance was deteriorating. “There is no reason to be criticized for it. Conte did the same thing as last season.” 메이저사이트
In other words, coach Conte uses the same tactics and strategy as last season, but Son Heung-min and Kulusevski, who digest them, have fallen into sluggishness, and it is argued that this led to the decline in Tottenham’s overall performance.
In addition, the media pointed out, “The sluggishness of Richarlison also helped. Richarlison is not able to score a goal even if he scoops the ball.”
