Tottenham Hotspur of the English Professional Football Premier League (EPL), to which Son Heung-min belongs, is in an emergency. The main goalkeeper Hugo Lloris (37, France) suffered an injury and was unable to play for up to two months.
Major British media outlets, including the BBC, reported on the 9th (Korean time) that Tottenham’s captain and main goalkeeper Lloris injured his knee in the Premier League (EPL) match against Manchester City last weekend and will be out for up to eight weeks.
메이저사이트 According to local media reports, Lloris suffered a knee ligament injury in Tottenham’s 1-0 win over Manchester City. He doesn’t need surgery, but it will take six to eight weeks before he’s back on the pitch.
It can’t be a big bad news for Tottenham, which is currently in 5th place in the EPL and is fighting a tough ranking battle. To make matters worse, Tottenham has not only league matches but also AC Milan (Italy) and the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) Round of 16, England Football Association (FA) Cup 5 round matches, etc. There are piles of important matches to be played in the future.
For the time being, veteran backup goalkeeper Fraser Foster (35) must guard the Tottenham goal instead of Lloris. Foster, who joined Tottenham last summer, is a veteran with experience as a starting goalkeeper at Celtic and Southampton in the past.
However, after his transfer to Tottenham, he only played in one EPL game. He played against Brentford on Boxing Day and led a 2–2 draw. In addition, he only appeared in 4 matches this season, including 2 FA Cup matches and 1 League Cup match. It is homework to quickly raise the sense of the game.
Tottenham will play an EPL away game against Leicester City at 0:00 am on the 12th. On the 15th at 5:00 am at the San Siro Stadium in Milan, Italy, AC Milan will play an away match in the first leg of the ACL Round of 16.
Meanwhile, Lloris, who led the French World Cup victory in 2018, announced his retirement from the national team last month. Lloris has made 21 league appearances this season, keeping seven clean sheets.
