Manchester United fans openly courted Harry Kane as a cheerleader.
Tottenhamㅋㅋㅋ벳 Hotspur drew 2-2 with Manchester United in the 33rd round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 28th at 4:15 am (Korean time). Tottenham failed to close the gap with 4th place Manchester United (60 points) and rose to 5th place in the league (54 points).
It was a difficult match for Tottenham. Tottenham have sacked acting manager Christian Stellini after a shocking 6-1 defeat to Newcastle United last weekend. This led to an unfunny situation in which coach Ryan Mason was in charge of the manager’s ‘acting agent’.
In the beginning, the shaky team atmosphere was revealed on the pitch. Tottenham took the lead with Jadon Sancho scoring in the 7th minute of the first half. Then, in the 44th minute of the first half, Marcus Rashford gave up an additional goal. Both goals came from Tottenham’s complacent defense, which did not stick to the opponent enough.
Fortunately, we got points. Tottenham, who returned with a different look in the second half, followed with a powerful right-footed out-front shot by Pedro Poro in the 11th minute of the second half. Then, in the 34th minute of the second half, Kane’s exquisite pass was finished by Son Heung-min with a calm right-footed shot, and the pursuit was successful.
The odds of a fourth place are even slimmer. Tottenham must come in 4th place to advance to the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) next season.
Even the European competition is at stake. The gap between 6th place Aston Villa (54 points), 7th place Liverpool (53 points) and 8th place Brighton (49 points) is not large. If you don’t do it, you can’t guarantee the UCL, let alone advance to the UEFA Europa Conference League.
This could also affect Kane’s departure. Kane is currently in the middle of a strong transfer with Manchester United, who wants a high-level striker. If Manchester United advances to the UCL and Tottenham fails to qualify for the European competition, Kane, who is aiming for the most EPL goalscorer (Alan Shearer, 260 goals), may venture to Manchester United.
Even Manchester United fans knew this. They sang “Harry Kane, see you in June!” in the 30th minute when United were leading. It was a very humiliating cheer for Tottenham, which came from the confidence that Tottenham would never catch up with Manchester United for the rest of the season.
