Ivan Perisic, who worked with Son Heung-min under Antonio Conte, is reportedly about to return to his old team, Haiduk Split.
Fabrizio Romano, a member of the British Cut Offside and an expert on the European football transfer market, said on his SNS on the 19th (Korea time), “Perisic’s return to Haiduk is going well, and he is now in the final stage. Perisic wants to return to make history in Haiduk,” he said, delivering the news that Perisic will be loaned to Haiduk until the end of the season.월카지노도메인
Perisic is a legend of Croatia. Perisic, who started playing soccer in Haydouk as a child, played for big clubs in each league, including Borussia Dortmund, Wolfsburg, Inter Milan and Bayern Munich, for about 15 years before joining Tottenham Hotspur in 2022 at the invitation of Antonio Conte. He also played nearly 130 games for the Croatian national team, contributing to Croatia’s winning the second place in the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and the third place in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Perisic and Conte both won the league title at Inter Milan, and Conte planned to use Perisic as the core of his strategy. Immediately after joining Tottenham, Perisic was appointed as a left wingback and coached Son on the left side. From his first season in the Premier League with Tottenham Hotspur, he scored one goal and eight assists in the league, setting a record of excellence.
However, the problem of breathing with Son Heung-min was pointed out. Both Perisic and Son Heung-min, who were former wingers, were aggressive, and Tottenham’s left attack did not seem to work out well due to twisted movements because it was the first time for the two players to work together. Son Heung-min also scored 10 goals and 6 assists in the league, accumulating a respectable personal record just like Perisic, but the two players had to be pointed out that they did not match throughout the season.
Perisic has been sidelined this season. Unlike Conte, who preferred a back3-based formation, Ange Postecoglou deploys four defenders in his defense, and Perisic, who cannot play at fullback, had to compete with attacking resources on the side. He often played as a substitute in the beginning of the season, but has been sidelined since suffering a cruciate ligament injury in September. In fact, he is out of the season.
Perisic’s contract with Tottenham ends in June this year. Tottenham is quite unlikely to renew its contract with Perisic because he is old and has suffered a long-term injury. If there is no unusual change, Tottenham and Perisic are expected to break up at the end of this season. It is also the reason why Tottenham allowed Perisic to rent Haiduk for the rest of this season.
Haiduq had long wanted Perisic. Even before the start of the season, Perisic was linked to Haiduq, and Romano explained that Haiduq still set Perisic as his top target in the middle of this month. There is no exact explanation for what history Haiduq is trying to achieve with Perisic, but it is certain that Perisic is about to make a romantic comeback in his career’s twilight years.
