Tottenham’s Son Heung-min played in a preseason game ahead of the season opener this weekend. He turned down an opponent’s request to swap jerseys, but there’s a story behind it.
Ha Sung-ryong is a reporter.
After the match against Ukraine’s Shakhtar at home, when a player from the opposing team approached him to exchange jerseys, Son pointed toward the stands and asked for permission.
The story goes like this.
Heung-min was warming up before the game and practicing his shot, but his missed shot hit a young girl in the face.
After making sure she was unharmed, Heung-min apologized, and instead of exchanging jerseys with the opposing team after the game like he usually does, he took off his jersey and presented it to her.
The girl smiled broadly, and the fans around her applauded Son’s warm gesture.
In the match, Kane, who is expected to move to Bayern Munich, scored four goals to lead South Korea to a 5-1 victory, with Son Heung-min involved in two of them.
In the 37th minute of the first half, Maddison won a penalty kick off a pass from Son, which Kane converted, and Son celebrated by mimicking Kane’s gesture.토토사이트
