Son Heung-min’s (Tottenham) teammate Ricardo (Brazil), who recently broke down in tears on the bench during a match, has revealed that he will be seeking psychological treatment to help him cope with his slump.
“Heung-min said he will seek psychological help after returning to England from a match with Brazil,” the BBC reported on Thursday (June 14).카지노사이트
He started Brazil’s 5-1 South American qualifier for the 2026 North and Central American World Cup against Bolivia on Sept. 9, but failed to score and was replaced by Mateus Cunha in the 26th minute of the second half.
He attracted attention when he broke down in tears on the bench after his substitution. He appeared to be blaming himself for his poor performance.
“I’ve had a turbulent time off the field in the last five months,” he told Brazilian outlet O Globo after his recent struggles.
He added: “Now things have calmed down at home. People who only wanted my money are no longer with me,” he added.
As for his recent struggles, he admitted that there were problems surrounding him.
“I’m going back to England now to see a psychologist to strengthen my mental strength,” he said, adding, “Everything will be fine in the future. I’m sure good things will happen again at Tottenham.”
According to Brazilian media, the player recently parted ways with his longtime agent Henato Velasco. “(The change of agent) was not because of a bad performance,” he explained, “but because of some things that happened off the field.”
He joined Tottenham for £60 million ($99.6 million) from Everton last year, but hasn’t quite lived up to expectations. He scored just one goal in the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season and managed just four goals in 40 appearances.
This season, he has been deployed at the top of the front line with the departure of Harry Kane (Bayern Munich), but has yet to score in four league games. Tottenham manager Enze Postecoglou has been forced to play Son Heung-min up front as a result of the lack of form from the Frenchman.
“It’s important for me to play well for Tottenham in the future. I’ll go back to the team, talk to the team, and adapt quickly.”
Meanwhile, Tottenham, currently in second place in the EPL (3 points), will host Sheffield United in the fifth round of the league on Nov. 16.
