only Son Heung-min remained

and he wore the captain’s armband.

Head coach Ange Postecoglou said: “Sonny (Son Heung-min) has great leadership on and off the pitch and is an ideal choice as the new captain.

We all know him as a world-class player and he has a lot of respect from everyone in the dressing room.

Son Heung-min transcends the group.

It’s not just because of its popularity.

It’s something we achieved in the game.”

Son Heung-min

who wore the captain’s armband in the opening match, was unfortunate to concede a penalty kick (PK).

It’s time to cheer for Son Heung-min

who has to bear the weight of being a veteran and captain.
