Son Heung-min and Kevin the Brawiner once again showed off their best friend mode.
Tottenham Hotspur won 1-0 against Manchester City in the 22nd round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 6th (Korean time). With this, Tottenham succeeded in narrowing the gap with Newcastle United (40 points), 5th in the league (39 points), and 4th.
From the time the players on the starting list waited to enter the stadium before the game, Son Heung-min and The Bruiner seemed to be on good terms. De Bruyne started off the bench in this match due to a tactical change by Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.
Son Heung-min, who played as a starter, contributed to the Tottenham attack by showing off a clearly changed performance. Tottenham took the lead early with Harry Kane’s opening goal in the 15th minute of the first half. Man City, who had difficulties on the road, eventually put in The Bruiner in the 14th minute of the second half. It was the moment when the best friend confrontation was concluded.
With The Bruiner coming in, Manchester City’s attack was a little more breathless, but Tottenham’s defensive concentration was also great. Unlike usual, he showed a good appearance in anti-personnel defense. The final winner was Tottenham.
After the fierce match, Son Heung-min and The Bruiner became friends again from enemies. After the game, the two players once again hugged and chatted for a while. It was a moment of mutual respect.
Ever since Son Heung-min played in the Bundesliga, he often had conversations with The Brawiner on the pitch. The same was true even after the two players moved over to the Premier League and represented Tottenham and Manchester City respectively.
The friendship between Son Heung-min and The Bruiner has attracted a lot of attention from football fans. At a Q&A session with fans at Tottenham in 2021, when a question related to The Bruiner came up, Son Heung-min said, “There is nothing special. Many fans are curious, but they just shake hands or talk to support each other’s game. More Brawiner is a really great player.” 스포츠토토
