Without Son Heung-min, the captive is the king! The only player who can go to Manchester City + Tottenham’s Alexander Arnold
Among them, there is one player who is praised by local media and experts. It is Tottenham’s fullback Pedro Porro. He is receiving the most attention in Tottenham without Son Heung-min. Since there is no Son Heung-min, Porro is the king, the atmosphere of “King without hands.”
It was the first game without Son Heung-min, against Burnley in the third round of the FA Cup. Porro scored a fantastic goal to lead Tottenham to a 1-0 victory. Then, in the 21st round of the EPL against Manchester United, Porro displayed his best performance again. Tottenham drew 2-2 with Manchester United. In the two games without Son, the MVP was Porro.
Praise continues for him. Alan Hutton, a senior who played for Tottenham from 2008 to 2011, claimed that Poro was the only Tottenham player who could move to Manchester City.
Hutton said, “There is a possibility that Poro will return to Manchester City under Pep Guardiola. It is an incredible move to Manchester City. You never know if Poro can return to the Etihad Stadium. Poro became a top player when he settled in Tottenham. He also scored an amazing goal against Burnley.”
“Poro showed what Manchester City wanted. What Pep wants the most is the position and movement of the prisoner. Poro can enter the stadium and overlap. Poro can play almost 10 roles. This role can be played by a fullback. It is unbelievable in modern soccer. Poro will definitely fit Pep’s calculation,” he stressed.
And after the match against Manchester United, Gary Lineker, one of the legends of English football, praised the prisoner through England’s “Tbrfootball.”
Lineker said, “There is a player who showed impressive performance in the absence of Son. It is Pororo. Pororo is an exceptional player. His pass, cross, set play, and he is really good. He is spraying the best pass in the right place. It is a really active style of play, and it is a fun way of playing.”
“Tbrfootball” compared prisoners to Liverpool’s Trent Alexander Arnold, who is considered the best full-back in the EPL.
The media outlet said, “It appears that there is Alexander Arnold in Tottenham. There is no debate about how well a prisoner owns the ball. He has recorded eight assists this season. Enze Postecoglou has acknowledged the quality of a prisoner, and there are not many fullbacks in the EPL who have the ability to provide the same services as a prisoner.”
