Tottenham is having its worst season in the English Premier League (EPL).
In the 2022-23 season, Tottenham was engulfed in various bad news. Antonio Conte has been sacked, and acting manager Christian Stellini has also been sacked. General manager Fabio Paratici also had to step down. Besides, the new director is still in the fog. Only numerous names go up and down, but the outline is not revealed.
Grades plummeted. The FA Cup, League Cup, and UEFA Champions League (UCL) were all eliminated early, and even the last hope to advance to the UCL next season was frustrated. Currently, Tottenham is pushed to 7th place in the EPL. It is in danger of not even advancing to the UEFA Europa League (UEL) next season.
Confusion Tottenham. Players are also in a state of confusion. Tottenham legend Harry Kane is rumored to be transferring to Manchester United. There is a steady rise in the possibility that Kane, who is tired of being irrelevant, could leave Tottenham. In particular, local media predicted that Kane would leave if he failed to advance to the UCL next season.
Son Heung-min, Kane’s soul partner and Tottenham’s key striker, is no different. It was Son Heung-min who had a lot of ups and downs this season. He suffered a facial injury, was in poor form and failed to show the explosive power of last season’s top scorer. Then, many experts poured out strong criticism throughout the season. The possibility that Son Heung-min could also leave Tottenham has been raised.
In this situation, Britain’s ‘BBC’ reported that “Tottenham has entered a transitional period of searching for a new manager, and there is uncertainty surrounding the future of Kane and Son Heung-min.”
While Tottenham, which reigned as the EPL’s Big 6, is on the path of decline, there is a rising powerhouse that can replace this spot. It’s Aston Villa.
‘BBC’ presented an analysis that Tottenham’s decline and Aston Villa’s rise are overlapping, and Aston Villa can leap forward as a new powerhouse beyond Tottenham. Aston Villa are currently 8th. The points with Tottenham are equal at 57 points.
The media said, “In the past 10 years, while Tottenham built a new stadium and enjoyed the UCL, Aston Villa had to go downhill. However, Aston Villa’s recent growth has been remarkable. Moving up will definitely be an important milestone, especially since Aston Villa won both of their matches against Tottenham in the Premier League this season, the first time since 1995-96.” 메이저놀이터
In addition, ‘BBC’ said: “Aston Villa now have real forward momentum. They also have strengthened team cohesion. No matter how the two teams’ competition for the UEL spot ends next season, Aston Villa can surpass Tottenham next season. It will give us a good opportunity,” he predicted.
