Jose Mourinho fears Heung-Min Son’s season may be over
Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho is fearful of Son Heung-Min missing the rest of the season due to injury, according to The Guardian.
The 27-year-old injured himself in the first minute of the match against Aston Villa at the weekend. The Tottenham attacker’s collision with Ezri Konsa left him with a fractured arm.
Although initially expected to be out for a few weeks, fears are mounting over the attacker’s availability for the rest of the season.
With star striker Harry Kane already injured, Mourinho believes that the situation could not have gotten any worse. Tottenham currently faces a striker crisis with youngster Troy Parrott the lone recognized striker in the squad.
Speaking prior to the match against RB Leipzig, Mourinho struggled to hide his disappointment and revealed that Son’s injury has left his players with broken hearts.
“I’m not going to count on him again this season.”
Mourinho explained his helplessness regarding the issue and elaborated on his predicament of not only having no attacking options off the bench but now having even fewer on the pitch.
Lucas Moura is expected to play upfront with the Spurs boss dismissing Troy Parrott’s chances at the moment. The Brazilian will be supported by an able cast of Steven Bergwijn, Giovani Lo Celso and Dele Alli.
With the top four race thrown wide open, the injury to the talismanic South Korean could not have come at a worse time.
