“It is true that we recruited him because of the absence of SON.” → Why the ‘shocking return to the EPL’, Postecoglou said

Tottenham announced the signing of Werner on Thursday. Werner, who won the UEFA Champions League title at Chelsea but was considered a failure, will make his first appearance in the Premier League in two years after returning to Leipzig in 2022 due to his transfer to Tottenham. 토토사이트 추천

Tottenham faced Manchester United (hereinafter referred to as Manchester United) in an away match in the 21st round of the Premier League in the 2023-24 season at Old Trafford, Manchester, on the 15th, and Coach Postecoglou explained the reason for signing Werner in a press conference held before the game.

“With Heung-min’s long departure from the team, we felt that we needed another player who could play in the three-top. Werner was looking for some change in his current situation, and the transfer was one of those choices,” Postecoglou said. “I thought Werner would fit our style. Werner has the characteristics we want. Werner can play in all positions in the three-top and he is a player who adds depth to the offense.”

Werner has been sluggish at Chelsea, and has played mostly as a substitute for Leipzig this season, scoring only two goals in 14 matches. Postecoglou responded by saying, “It doesn’t matter what happened to Werner in the past. Werner is still at a good age, he has aspirations to play for the national team, and he wants to play at the highest level. We can provide Werner with opportunities.”

“It took little time for Tottenham to persuade Werner. In a telephone conversation with Postecoglou, Werner made the decision to transfer in just two minutes,” the British newspaper The Sun said, referring to the background of the move.

The British Daily Mail said, “Werner will have time to play with Son. Werner’s playing time will not depend on Son’s absence. Werner believes that if the situation improves at Tottenham, he will be able to regain his place in the German national team for Euro 2024.”

Werner joined Tottenham’s squad and participated in team training ahead of the match against Manchester United. Most local media, including the British Evening Standard, predicted that Werner would start as Tottenham’s three-top along with Hishalisson and Brennan Johnson in the match against Manchester United.

Werner said, “I want to be the best player at Tottenham. Those who have watched the Premier League know that I have the speed and can be a threat to my opponent. I want to bring that to my team.”
