Heung-Min Son to self-isolate for two weeks after return from South Korea

According to Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur star Heung-Min Son will spend two weeks in self-isolation, following his return from South Korea amidst the Coronavirus outbreak.

The talismanic attacker returned to his homeland to consult the same surgeon, who had treated him three years ago. Son injured the same hand in the 3-2 victory over Aston Villa, effectively ruling him out for the rest of the season (h/t Daily Mail).

The South Korean travelled to his country before travel restrictions were put in place. A number of nations – including South Korea – have introduced travel restrictions to stem the spread of the virus (h/t Daily Mail).

As a precaution, the 27-year-old will stay away from Tottenham’s Enfield training ground to avoid coming into contact with teammates and staff. Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho confirmed that the club will strictly enforce the medical and legal directives in dealing with the concern (h/t Daily Mail).

Speaking on the issue (h/t Daily Mail), the Portuguese admitted that he is no specialist in the area and will follow the regulations and orders given by the authorities.

“Where he will be? I don’t know how to be specific with that, I just know we have to follow some safety protocols.”

These measures have been enforced after La Liga side Valencia’s decision to postpone all non-football related events. The decision was taken after a fan, who was in attendance at Atalanta for the club’s Champions League tie, tested positive for the virus upon return (h/t Daily Mail).
