‘Similar to Usain Bolt’ Tottenham’s Bokbug Becomes Fastest Player in PL… ‘37.38 km/h’
Mickey van de Pen has been recorded as the fastest player in the English Premier League (PL).
Tottenham said on its official website on the 8th (Korea time), “Officially Van de Pen has become the fastest player in the PL.”
Van de Pen had a top speed of 37.38 km/h in Tottenham’s 3-2 win over Brentford, according to the club. It is the fastest speed since sprint records were tallied from 2020.
“At the 2008 Olympic Games, Usain Bolt scored an average of 37.57 kilometers, breaking the 100-meter dash world record. He is 0.19 kilometers faster than Van de Pen,” Tottenham explained. “He passed the 37.31-kilometer mark set by former Tottenham player Kyle Walker.”
He added, “There is another Tottenham player in the top 10. It is Brennan Johnson, who has a 36.70 km speed for Nottingham Forest.”
Van der Penn joined Tottenham ahead of this season. He played well in Wolfsburg in the German Bundesliga last season, scoring one goal and two assists in 33 games.
Naturally, he became the target of the big club, and Tottenham succeeded in acquiring him. In total, Tottenham invested 50 million euros (about W71.8 billion) in acquiring Van de Pen. There were also voices of concern because it was not a small amount of money. Until now, Van de Pen has been doing the right thing for its money.
When Van de Pen moved to Tottenham, not many people expected him to become the main defender. This season, Tottenham has had eight wins and two draws in 10 league games since its opening. Van de Pen has played in all 10 games and contributed greatly to the defense.
“Fan the pen, that player is real. I watched his debut game for the Netherlands a few days ago. I saw him up close twice this season. He is a young center-back who came into the new league, but he looks very comfortable,” Rio Ferdinand said.
However, he was hamstrung by the injury. Van de Pen collapsed by holding his hamstring while playing in the 46th minute of the first half of the match against Chelsea in the 11th round of the PL. “Van de Pen has a hamstring injury. He cannot play for months,” Tottenham manager Enze Postecoglou said after the match.
Tottenham’s defense faltered when the pen fell out. There was no player to replace his fast speed and wide cover range. The team’s ranking also plummeted. 월카지노주소
Fortunately, he made a comeback in early January. At the time, Van de Pen said through the club, “It’s a great time to come back. The second half of the season is important, so I hope everyone stays in good shape. We’ll see what happens.”
Van de Pen has started in four consecutive games recently, helping his defense. If he plays consistently without any problems such as injury, he can grow into the best defender in the PL.
