The South Korean injured himself in the first minute at Villa Park. He soldiered through to score a brace including a last-minute winner as Spurs won 3-.2 The victory came at a price as Son now looks to be out for the rest of the season with a fractured arm.
According to Football.London, the 27-year-old will be sidelined for a period of between six to 12 weeks. His surgery seems to have gone well but it looks to be some time before we see the talismanic attacker again.
The Spurs captain has been missing since January after limping off against Southampton with a hamstring issue. The striker’s surgery went well and he even posted on social media as he steps up his recovery.
Mourinho expects his ace striker to return for the game against Leicester on 9th April.
It was a double whammy for Tottenham at Southampton in January. Apart from losing Kane, the club also lost powerhouse midfielder Moussa Sissoko to a long term injury.
The 30-year-old injured his knee with the club confirming that he has undergone surgery to rectify that medial collateral ligament.
Expected to be out long-term, the player’s videos of him stepping up his rehabilitation has struck a chord with Spurs fans. Mourinho too is optimistic about having the player back towards the end of March or early April.
