I dreamed of a new Korean derby, but the possibility of it coming true is close to 0%.
Tottenham Hotspur will face Brentford in the first round of the 2023-24 English Premier League at the G-Tech Community Stadium in London, England on the 13th (Korean time).
This match is Son Heung-min’s first match as Tottenham’s new captain. And expectations were high for the first confrontation with Kim Ji-soo, who moved to Brentford this summer.
Kim Ji-soo left Seongnam FC and signed a 4-year contract with Brentford. Although he mainly played for the B team in the preseason, he often came up to the first team and showed good form.
However, Brentford excluded Kim Ji-soo from the list of uniform numbers for the 2023-24 season. Kim Ji-soo received number 36 throughout the preseason, but ’36’ went to Yehor Yarmolyuk.스포츠토토
Of course, if Kim Ji-soo plays an active part in Team B, he can always receive a call-up, uniform number, and expect to play in the Premier League, but it seems that his appearance in the opening game against Tottenham has been missed.
He need not be disappointed. Kim Ji-soo is a very young player and is now in the big leagues. Like other players, he played in other leagues and was not recruited immediately with a sense of power. He needs to grow slowly over time.
Meanwhile, Son Heung-min will wear his symbol number 7 and will also be active in the 2023-24 season. With Harry Kane leaving for Bayern Munich, only Son Heung-min is classified as a world class player in the team. He has to fill many roles as captain as well as ace.
