“My favorite person” Sar, thanks to Son Heung-min, ‘adaptation helper’

Tottenham future Pape Sar (21) thanked his teammate and 10-year-old senior Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham). 

Born in 2002, Sar is a midfielder for the Senegalese national team. Sar, who joined Tottenham from FC Metz (France) in 2021, was immediately loaned back to Metz and spent last season. Sar, who returned to Tottenham this season, made his starting debut against Arsenal on the 16th of last month (Korean time). He also made his Champions League debut, playing full-time for AC Milan in the last 14 days, albeit in a 0-1 defeat.

Sarr is expected to start the match against Chelsea at 10:30 pm on the 26th in the 25th round of the 2022-2023 English Premier League. Rodrigo Bentancur and Yves Bisuma have been sidelined due to injuries, giving them a chance. Although he lost 0-1, he raised expectations by playing full-time in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 against AC Milan on the 14th. 

Sar has been on the bench for a while since joining Tottenham this season. Because of his competitors, it was not easy to play.  스포츠토토

In an interview with Sky Sports on the 25th (Korean time), Sarr said, “It’s the team’s decision. We have five central midfielders and the manager has to make a decision.” “I waited my turn. I trained every day for when the manager needed me and tried to make sure I was needed. So when the manager called me, I was not disappointed.”

It was not easy to face an unfamiliar atmosphere at a young age. I had to get used to the team atmosphere quickly. At that time, Son Heung-min helped him quickly adapt to the team. 

Sar said of Son Heung-min, “He’s a really nice and cool guy.” He was one of my favorite people on the team.”
