Technical support issues
Son Heung-min handed over an apology and transformed into Santa!… 150 servings of meals to homeless people
Brennan Johnson became Santa Claus during Christmas.
"Johnson donated 150 meals during Christmas for homeless people in Nottingham, all the money needed, and the amount to be delivered to emergency services (doctors, nurses, fire and police) working in the city on the same day," the British Football London reported on the 26th.
There is a reason why Johnson donated to homeless people and emergency services workers in Nottingham. Nottingham was the first team and city where Johnson started playing soccer. Johnson started playing soccer for Nottingham Forest Youth. After spending about 10 years with the youth team, he made his professional debut at the age of 18. After that, he gained experience by renting Lincoln City.
He started playing for Nottingham from the 2021-22 season. At that time, Johnson displayed remarkable performance in the English Football League Championship (second division). He destroyed the sides with fast speed and produced excellent attack points. Johnson scored 10 goals and 12 assists, and even won the EFL Young Player of the Year award.
He has grown further. In the 2021-22 season, Johnson scored 16 goals and nine assists, making an outstanding contribution to his team's promotion. He also showed his potential in the Premier League. Last season, Johnson played in all 38 games in the league, and scored eight goals and three assists, contributing to his team's remaining.
Tottenham sent a love call to this kind of performance. Tottenham has high expectations. This is because Johnson is a player whose potential has been recognized enough to rank third in Tottenham's transfer fee history. Tottenham invested 55 million euros (about 78.7 billion won) to bring in Johnson.
Since his transfer, he has not received much attention due to adjustment and injury. However, Johnson has displayed his full potential. While helping Son score at the match against Crystal Palace in the 10th round, Johnson displayed his moving play by finding space.
He even scored his debut goal. Johnson scored the first goal in the first three minutes of the first half of the match against Wolverhampton on the 11th. Johnson's goal was not visible at the time, as his team lost 1-2, but it was a glimpse of future development potential.
In the last match against Everton, I almost got help from Son Heung-min. In the 35th minute of the second half, Son Heung-min sent a pass to Johnson during Tottenham's counterattack, but both direction and strength were disappointing. Son Heung-min also sat down and swallowed his regret after sending the pass.
In response, Son expressed his regret. During an interview with Spurs after the game, Johnson suddenly appeared next to Son. "This friend was really good to me," Son said, before apologizing, "I was really sorry that I missed a good opportunity."
He added, "I was so desperate because I wanted my teammate to score. Johnson would have scored. I expect Johnson to score a goal quickly and do a ceremony with us."
However, Johnson blamed himself rather. "I have to try to get to a position where I can score in every game. I am not satisfied with the opportunity that came to me today. I should have scored a goal. I have to try harder for myself," he said.
