The captain pointed out the director’s tactics… West Ham ‘Son Heung-min aftermath’

West Ham United are suffering internal conflict after defeat against Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League.

On the 20th (Korean time), England’s The Sun said, “West Ham captain and midfielder Declan Rice questioned coach David Boyes’ tactics in the defeat against Tottenham.”

In the match against Tottenham Hotspur in the 2022-23 English Premier League round 24 held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on this day, West Ham knelt 0-2. After conceding the first goal to Emerson Royal in the 슬롯사이트11th minute of the second half, Son Heung-min allowed an additional goal in the 27th minute of the second half, losing the will to fight.

After the match, Rice said: “When we build up like today with three defenders and five midfielders, the forwards will feel isolated. They don’t get enough support from the surroundings.” It was openly pointed out that there was a problem with coach Moyes’ tactics.

Against Tottenham on this day, West Ham came out with a 3-5-1-1 tactic.

Calculating that he would not be pushed back in the midfield battle with five midfielders, Rice stepped up as a central midfielder along with Thomas Suchek and Flynn Downes. Coincidentally, Tottenham was in a situation where key midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur was missing.

However, West Ham only had 43% of possession despite their numerical superiority. The number of shots is also low at 6-16. As Rice said, strikers were isolated. Macayle Antonio, who played as a forward striker, finished the game without recording a single shot in the 72nd minute. Tottenham had an expected score of 1.55, while West Ham had only 0.48.

West Ham finished 6th in the 2020-21 season and 7th last season with manager Moyes.

This season has empowered Moyes as he spent close to 200 million euros in the transfer market to take things up a notch.

However, unlike the goal of aiming for the European competition, the reality is that they are competing for relegation. With this defeat, they remained in 18th place with 20 points. They are one point behind Leeds United in 19th place and two points behind Southampton in 20th place.
