‘I’m going to be right next to you’

‘I’ll stick by my brother’s side.’

Midfielder Pape Matar Sar, 21, dubbed “SON’s attachment doll” by fans in South Korea because he always sticks close to his senior teammate and captain Son Heung-min, 31, and shows a deep sense of camaraderie, has signed a contract extension with Tottenham Hotspur until 2030. Tottenham recognized the potential of the young midfielder, who has risen through the ranks and is now an integral part of the team, and rewarded him with a long-term deal.

‘Sarr has signed a new long-term contract with Tottenham,’ British media outlet Football London reported on March 3 (KST). Prior to this, Tottenham also announced on their official website, “We are delighted to announce the signing of a new contract with Sarr. His contract has been extended until June 2030.

Senegalese-born Sarr joined Tottenham in August 2021 after rising through the ranks at French Ligue 1 side FC Metz. He was quickly loaned back to his original club, FC Metz, before rejoining Tottenham last summer for the EPL. In his first season, the 2022-2023 campaign, he played under former manager Antonio Conte, but didn’t make much of an impact, mainly as a backup. He managed one assist in 14 games.

This season, however, he has exploded into the first-team midfield, thanks to the trust of manager Enze Postecoglou and his potential.

In particular, he was helped by Son Heung-min in his early days at Spurs, which made it easier for him to fit into the team. As a result of this relationship, Xhar stuck close to Son, 카지노사이트 who is 10 years his senior and the current Spurs captain, expressing a deep sense of camaraderie and respect. Son Heung-min returned the affectionate gesture with his characteristic friendliness and bright expression. As a result, Sarr was nicknamed ‘SON’s attachment doll’. In particular, when he suffered a hamstring injury in the final game last year, he cried in Son Heung-min’s arms.

This season, as he has grown into a regular starter, his weekly wages have increased by a whopping 750% from £10,000 to £75,000. It’s a sign of how much Spurs value the youngster’s talent. His contract, which expires in 2026, has also been extended by four years to 2030.
