English professional soccer Premier League player Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur) will join his club’s preseason schedule as they prepare for the new season after a break.
Son, who has been resting in Korea, departed the country on the morning of the 14th through Incheon International Airport.
A Samsung Galaxy ambassador, Son appeared at the airport 30 minutes before his flight took off in a white T-shirt, black jacket, and jeans with a Galaxy Watch on his wrist.
As his departure was a closely guarded secret, not many fans showed up at the airport with his uniform.
However, when a citizen at the airport shouted, “Oh, it’s Son Heung-min!”, dozens of people quickly gathered.
Heung-min signed the jerseys and said “thank you” with a smile on his face before hurrying to the departure gate.
“I hope he does as well as he did in the 2021-2022 season, when he was at his best without any injuries,” said Kim Mo, 38, an office worker who waited for him at the airport wearing a Tottenham jersey from early in the morning. “He has always adapted well even when the coach changes, so I believe he will adapt without any problems this time.”
“He’s so recognizable that I’m wearing his jersey to get his autograph,” Kim said, “I even brought my children’s jerseys to get his autograph,” she added, opening her shopping bag.
Na Ha-eun (20) and Lee Hwi-jae (20), who came to the airport to see Son Heung-min join Tottenham after looking up local articles in the UK, said they unexpectedly saw him off on his way out of the country.
They smiled broadly, saying, “In the next season, it’s important to perform well, but I hope you take care of your body first and play ‘happy soccer’ without getting injured.”
Son Heung-min boarded a plane to Singapore for the day. From there, he will connect to a flight to Perth, Australia, where he is expected to join the Tottenham squad.
The Spurs are preparing for the 2023-2024 season with a tour of Asia, 카지노사이트넷 starting in Australia, followed by Thailand and Singapore.
Tottenham will first play a friendly against West Ham (England) at Optus Stadium in Perth, Australia on August 18 at 7pm.
