Thanks to Son Heung-min’s performance in the World Cup, Tottenham got a lot of compensation.
Britain’s ‘The Athletic’ analyzed on the 15th (Korean time) how much player compensation money the 20 Premier League (EPL) clubs will receive from the FIFA World Cup Organizing Committee.
The FIFA World Cup Organizing Committee prepared 209 million dollars (approximately 274 billion won) for the club compensation for this tournament. The method of giving compensation to the club is simpler than you think. It is a method of paying 10,000 dollars (approximately 13.1 million won) per person until the day they leave the club and participate in the World Cup. For example, if a team player advances to the finals of the World Cup or the 3rd and 4th place matches, compensation amounts to 370,000 dollars (approximately 485 million won) per player. 안전놀이터
The player’s current club does not receive all compensation. From the 2020-21 season, it depends on which team you belong to. For example, in the case of Manchester City’s Calvin Phillips, from the 2020-21 season to the 2021-22 season, two-thirds of the total compensation is delivered to Leeds because he was a member of Leeds United. For players who have not changed their team since the start of the 2020-21 season, all compensation will be paid to the current club.
Then, what about Son Heung-min? According to ‘The Athletic’, the compensation Tottenham receives when Son Heung-min participates in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar is 220,000 dollars (approximately 288 million won). Son Heung-min left Tottenham for a total of 22 days from London, England on November 15th to December 6th, local time, so he was paid $220,000 in compensation.
Meanwhile, Son Heung-min left for England through Incheon International Airport on the 13th after a short vacation in Korea. Son Heung-min participated in training as soon as he arrived in England. It seems that he only conducted light recovery training because he still had fatigue from digesting the World Cup and traveled by plane for a long time.Son Heung-min conducted recovery training without wearing a mask.
