Tottenham said on the club’s website on the 13th, Son Heung-min has been appointed as the club captain. He took over the armband from Hugo Lloris, who had been captain since the 2014-15 season. 스포츠토토 James Madison and Christian Romero have been appointed deputy captains,” the official statement said. Coach Enje Postecoglou said, Son Heung-min has great leadership on and off the field and is an ideal choice as a new captain. We all know him as a world-class player and he has tremendous respect from everyone in the dressing room. Son Heung-min transcends the group. It’s not just because of popularity. I achieved it in the game, he said.
Along with captain Son Heung-min, vice captain was also announced. Ben Davis, Christian Romero, and Madison, who played for Tottenham for a long time, were appointed, not Eric Dyer. Medison drew attention by posting his name. Medison left relegated Leicester City and joined Tottenham this summer. The transfer fee was 46.3 million euros about 67.5 billion won, ranking fourth in the club’s history after Tanggui Ndombele 62 million euros, Hishalisson 58 million euros and Romero 50 million euros.
Medison was so good that he kept his England national team position even when Leicester showed its worst slump. Medison received full attention when he played for Norwich City. In The 2017-18 Season, when Norwich were in the English Championship Second Division, Madison appeared in 44 league games, scoring 14 goals and 8 assists, earning praise. When he moved to Leicester, he showed that it worked in the English Premier League.
Madison, whose main position is an attacking midfielder, used to play in the midfield, but he stepped up to the side to strengthen Leicester’s attack. He played more than 30 EPL games every season and steadily scored offensive points. He scored 12 goals and 8 assists in 35 league games in the 2021-22 season, marking a career high. Leicester also scored 10 goals and 9 assists in 30 league games last season when they were demoted.
Medison, who played 203 official games in Leicester alone, scored 55 goals and 41 assists. Medison, who has expanded his position in the English national team, pushed for a transfer after Leicester was demoted and joined Tottenham. Tottenham needed a player like Madison because their attack creativity was missing. Medison played in different positions during the pre-season and was expected to play in the upcoming season.
