Correspondent Kang Dong-hoon = Tottenham (England) striker Richarlison (25) is still unable to score in the English Premier League (EPL) after joining. Aside from his frequent injuries, it is because of his prolonged sluggishness, such as not being able to create any threatening scenes every time he plays.
Richarlison started in the 2022-2023 season EPL round 24 home game against West Ham United held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England at 1:30 am (Korean time) on the 20th. However, he left the ground as he was substituted in the 23rd minute of the second half without leaving much of an impression.카지노
Richarlison, who left the lineup due to a hamstring injury after the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, focused on improving his game sense and condition while digesting a short time as a substitute from last month. Then, on this day, I seized the opportunity to be selected. It has been three months since last November.
As Hisharli Song was his first starter after a long time, he had to make his presence known while taking a ‘snow stamp’. But he had no significant influence. As an actual left-sided striker, he only had 2 effective shots and 1 opportunity creation.
In particular, he left a disappointing appearance by missing a decisive chance. Richarlison received a cutback from Dejan Kulusevski (22) in the 3rd minute of the second half and took a perfect open chance in the box. However, the shot was easily blocked as it went to the front of the goalkeeper with less power.
Head coach Christian Stellini (48, Italy) eventually took out Richarlison, who was sluggish overall, in the 23rd minute of the second half and made a change. And it hit perfectly. Son Heung-min (30), who came on as a substitute, scored an additional goal 4 minutes after stepping on the ground to lead the victory.
After the match, ‘WhoScored.com’, a media specializing in football statistics, gave Richarlison a score of 6.86. This was the third ‘lowest score’ among Tottenham players who started. He was the only 6-pointer on offense. British media ‘Football London’ gave a rating of 5, saying, “The movement was heavy, such as a bad touch in the first half. I struggled to find a solution.”
Like this, as his sluggishness, such as Hisharli Song’s failure to score in the EPL, has been prolonged, his expectations are slowly dropping. In particular, when he joined Tottenham, some fans are pouring out criticism because the transfer fee recorded a huge amount of 60 million pounds (about 94 billion won) including bonus clauses.
