After initially revealing that Son Heung-min had sustained a minor knock whilst on duty with South Korea and didn’t train with the team on Saturday with his national teammates, journalist Steve Han has now revealed that the Spurs star is fine despite the slight knock sustained and has been given the all clear to return to training on Sunday.
Son, who captained his South Korea side to a 1-0 win over the UAE on Thursday, has been in superb form for the Lilywhites so far this campaign, contributing five goals so far – including the first in Antonio Conte’s managerial reign at Spurs with his opener in the 3-2 European victory against Vitesse Arnhem.
Is Heung-min Son Spurs' best player?
No, he's not the best
Yes, he's our star man
Additionally, after hearing about the latest positive injury update after the South Korean star suffered a minor injury while on national duty, many Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to voice their delight.
What did these Spurs fans make of the Son injury update?
“Every international break we get a Sonny injury scare and I’m getting sick of it tbh”
“With the injury crisis we’ve had at Spurs this season, you can’t blame us for panicking, glad to know it’s nothing serious. Thanks for the update”
“He said he is alright himself in his interview”
“Dele Remontada will have to wait a little longer”
“Send him home. Thanks.”
Conte will be delighted that the minor knock Son sustained on national duty is not one that will result in a spell on the sidelines and will be desperately hoping that the South Korean will be fit and available to face Leeds United at the Tottenham Hotspur in their next Premier League game on Sunday the 21st November after the international break.
