Vietnamese media pointed out that Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham)’s performance was disappointing.
On the 3rd (Korean time), Vietnamese media ‘The Tao’ said, “While Son Heung-min had a disappointing season, Kaoru Mitoma (26, Brighton) has emerged as a new Asian idol.”
In the English Premier League (EPL), where Son Heung-min is playing, the craze for Mitoma is strong.
Mitoma, who entered the EPL in the Japanese professional soccer J-League in August 2021, went on loan to Royal Winion Saint-Gilloise (Belgium) for a year and then moved on. 온라인카지노
In particular, after attending the World Cup in Qatar last year, he is raging like a fish in water. He has scored 6 goals and 2 assists in 19 official matches this season.
Last month, in the fourth round of the FA Cup against Liverpool, he scored a dramatic goal in extra time in the second half, revealing his presence. He started all 6 matches, including the recent league and FA Cup, scoring 4 goals and 1 assist.
His sensuous dribbling, focus, and goal-making ability are evaluated to be similar to Son Heung-min.
While Son Heung-min, who became the first EPL Asian player to score 23 goals last year, has been somewhat stagnant this season, Mitoma is receiving a lot of attention from big clubs.
