Dramatic reversal story of a prospect who sniped Conte… “It’s like Bernardo Silva”
Brian Hill is now the trust of manager Antonio Conte.
Tottenham Hotspur defeated Crystal Palace 4-0 in the 19th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Selhurst Park in London, England on the 5th (Korean time). With this, Tottenham maintained 5th place with 10 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses.
It is Tottenham who succeeded in reversing the atmosphere with a great victory. Harry Kane, who exploded two goals, and Hugo Lloris, who made several decisive saves, all did their part. The player who stood out in particular was Hill. Hill is a player signed by Tottenham ahead of the 2021-22 season.
He was a player who showed potential for growth in Spain, but life at Tottenham was not easy. As soon as he arrived, manager Nuno Santo was sacked, and manager Conte did not trust Hill. The reason was that Hill was not physically complete to compete in the EPL. Eventually, Hill returned to the Spanish League and spent his loan spell.
Hill was controversial when he posted a social media post in which he shot down Conte for wanting to play his game. After the Valencia loan collapsed in the transfer market in September, Hill posted a message saying, “Sometimes old photos make us cherish the happiest moments we didn’t realize.” Originally, Hill was scheduled to go to Valencia, but was forced to stay in the team as Tottenham could not find a replacement.
Even if he stayed on the team, there was no big twist. He stayed on the bench each time. The Hill’s position changed after Richarlison, Dejan Kulusevski and Lucas Moura were out with injuries. Coach Conte boldly put Hill, the only remaining offensive resource, as a starter. The previous match against Aston Villa was disappointing, but Hill showed his worth against Palace.
Hill was also involved in Kane’s opening goal in the 3rd minute of the second half, and even succeeded in assisting with a sharp pass to Kane in the 8th minute of the second half. After moving to Tottenham, he played his best performance. In response, England’s ‘Football London’ said, “He contributed greatly to the good process Tottenham showed메이저사이트. He played his part in 3 of the 4 goals. He brought creativity to Tottenham and filled the void in Klusevsky. He highly praised him, saying, “I proved my qualifications to be trusted to play in the EPL.”
Coach Conte also praised him after the match, saying “He understands football quickly. He is very smart and intelligent in understanding situations. I compare him to Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva. I think they are very similar.”
