Global sports media “The Athletic” said on the 5th, “Tottenham winger Solomon will face a long-term absence due to damage to the meniscus.” He suffered a knee injury during training and is expected to leave for at least a few months, the report said.
Solomon, who began his professional career with Israel’s Maccabi Petatikva FC, began his European career in January 2019 by joining Shakhtar Donetsk, Ukraine. He has scored 22 goals and nine assists in 106 official games for Shakhtar in three and a half years. 토토사이트
Solomon’s career took an unexpected turn due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. FIFA established a provisional rule in March last year that foreign players in the Ukrainian league could stop their contracts. Solomon, who was from Israel, also spent the last season on loan at Fulham in the EPL due to the rule.
Solomon scored five goals in 24 games for Fulham. He returned to Fulham, but the war was still ongoing. As FIFA extended the special rule in May, Shakhtar and Solomon’s contract, which was until December 2023, was suspended. Solomon, who was subject to free agency, wore a Tottenham uniform.
Solomon, who was initially expected to serve as Son Heung-min’s backup, received a considerable opportunity at the beginning of the season. His teamwork with Son was also good. Solomon helped Son Heung-min score two of his three goals in the fourth round of the EPL 2023/24 season against Burnley on the 2nd (Korea Standard Time). Solomon, who had reinvigorated the attack with his excellent dribble breakthrough, had two assists in six games this season.
Solomon suffered a knee injury while gradually improving his skills. Solomon’s injury is a bad thing for Tottenham. Tottenham have already lost veteran wing forward Ivan Perisic to a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament. Perisic is likely to be out for the season. Welsh Holy Brennan Johnson is also yet to return from a hamstring injury.
Son’s physical condition is also not normal. Son Heung-min was substituted for Hishal Song in the 34th minute of the second half against Arsenal. In the game against Liverpool, they were taken off the field in the 24th minute of the second half. Coach Enje Postecoglou said of Son Heung-min after the match against Liverpool, “He is not in 100% physical condition.”
Tottenham is preparing for the 8th round of the 2023/24 EPL season against Luton Town at Kenilworth Road Stadium in Luton, England on the 7th. Because Luton was weak, it was the right time to give Son Heung-min a break, but Solomon’s injury reduced the number of attackers available. The burden on Son Heung-min is increasing.
