‘Will Son Heung-min end up being irrelevant?” English media “Son Heung-min named Liverpool’s 6 most wasted players”
What would it have been like if the ‘Lord of the Flops’ Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham) had played for a big club?
Since joining Tottenham in 2015, Son Heung-min has been a non-factor. He has become a world-class player, leading the Premier League in scoring in the 2021-22 season, but he hasn’t won a title. Would it have been different if Son had moved to a big club?
The UK’s Mirror has published a list of six players Liverpool missed out on. Son’s name is prominent on the list. “Jürgen Klopp first tried to sign Son when he was at Dortmund in 2013. However, he joined Leverkusen. Klopp said: ‘SON is a fantastic player, world class. It was the biggest mistake of my life to miss out on him,” Klopp admitted.메이저사이트
In the Bundesliga, Son was so dominant for Dortmund that he was nicknamed the Beekeeper. He wouldn’t have gotten that reputation if he had moved from Hamburg to Dortmund. Even after Klopp’s arrival at Liverpool, Son was constantly being linked with a move away.
“According to the player’s agent, Tisse Blumeister, Liverpool have made several offers for the player. However, after joining Tottenham, the move did not materialize.”
In addition to Son, Jude Bellingham (20, Real Madrid), Aurélien Chouameni (23, Real Madrid), Alex Teixeira (33, Beşiktaş), Piotr Zielinski (29, Napoli), and Nabil Fekir (30, Real Betis) were also mentioned as players Liverpool missed out on.
