South Korea national team striker Oh Hyun-gyu (22-Celtic) has revealed that he has had conversations with seniors Son Heung-min (31-Tottenham Hotspur) and Angie Postecoglou (58-Australia) about the new Tottenham manager.
Oh, who was called up to the national team for two June A-match tournaments (Peru on the 16th and El Salvador on the 20th), held a press conference in front of Gudeok Sports Complex in Busan, where the team trained on the 13th.
He said, “Whether I play one minute or 90 minutes, I will always do my best. I will show my 100 percent,” he said.
“I wanted to play so badly at the World Cup in Qatar. I know only those who have been to the World Cup stadium,” he said, adding, “I feel even more eager because I’m a player who hasn’t played on the field and I have a hunger. If I go to the Asian Cup, I want to make the moments I’ve been dreaming about a reality.”
During the interview, Oh was asked if he had spoken to Son about Postecoglou’s time at Celtic. Postecoglou, who led Celtic to a triple (league, league cup, and Scottish Cup) in the 2022-23 season, officially joined Tottenham this month.
Oh, who joined Celtic from Suwon Samsung in January, scored seven goals in the half-season under Postecoglu’s guidance.스포츠토토
“Heung-min asked me a lot of questions (about Postecoglou),” Oh said, “like what kind of style he has, what he emphasizes, and so on.”
“To be honest, I’ve only been with him for half a year, so I don’t know him in depth, but he’s a tactically brilliant man. I believe he will be successful (at Tottenham).”
