Manchester City (Man City) striker Jack Grealish explained why he tackled Son Heung-min after defeating Tottenham Hotspur.
Man City, led by coach Josep Guardiola, won 4-2 against Tottenham in the 7th round of the 2022-2023 English Premier League (EPL) held at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England on the 20th (Korean time).
Even with the big win, Man City was troubled. The first half wasn’t perfect. Even though Tottenham scored two goals first in the first half to take the lead, Man City showed their concentration in the second half and completely turned the game around.
슬롯사이트 In the 25th minute of the first half, Man City faced a counterattack crisis with a long pass connected to Son Heung-min after a corner kick opportunity. While Son Heung-min’s touch wasn’t that perfect, Grealish quickly chased after him and kicked it off with a tackle.
After the game, Grealish told Sky Sports in the UK, “It had to be. Son Heung-min is good at running to break the line. So I tackled him. Anything could have happened, but it was fortunate that it worked.”
In addition, the gloomy atmosphere after the first half was also conveyed. “At half-time, the locker room fell silent. I didn’t think about the standings, only the game. Since I came here, I’ve lost everything against Tottenham,” Grealish said.
Grealish left Aston Villa in the summer of 2021 and moved to Manchester City for £100 million. He had a disappointing first season, but the 2022-2023 season is better than last season, with 2 goals and 3 assists in 13 league appearances, 26 appearances, 3 goals and 3 assists.
