Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son both scored braces as Tottenham produced one of the high-scoring football results in a friendly. Both the superstars were brought on in the second half much to the delight of the 64,000 packed into the stadium in Seoul. New signing Richarlison made his debut and Antonio Conte believes that he is a player who gives him important options. He played 77 minutes on the night.
“Today I have seen a lot of positive things about Richy. In the first half he played as a number nine and in the second half, he played on the right and behind the striker. He can play in all three positions,” Tottenham head coach Antonio Conte said. “I think he is strong physically and has a good personality, good character, good quality. For Richy, he is working and we are working on the tactical aspects with him because he has to go into our idea. At the same time, we have to work on the physical aspects for him to be fit. But for sure he is a player that gives me important positions up front. He’s a player that is a good player, strong, and very good to protect the ball and attacking space. I’m very happy that we signed him.”
“For Ben, it was the second training session and he needed to recover and run and do the same training as the players did in the last two days. It was the same for Kulusevski,” he added. “We had a problem with Covid, with Bissouma and Fraser because the test was positive. For this reason, they weren’t here with us. Yes, [they are isolating]. Perisic is working very well. He’s very close. I think tomorrow he could have a part of the training session with us.”
