Son Heung-Min to return to Tottenham training after staying away for 14 days
According to the Evening Standard, Son Heung-Min will return to the Tottenham training ground after a 14-day self-isolation period following 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.
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 had stayed 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.
In spite of the first-team squads at Arsenal and Chelsea having gone into self-isolation, Spurs underwent normal training on Friday morning. Thankfully so far, no players have shown signs of symptoms. The club has told staff to work from home and one employee has been tested after showing symptoms, with the results coming out to be negative.
The injured players at the club will continue rehabilitation normally, with Son set to join their ranks at the start of next week.
Son has, however, denied being in self-isolation. It appears as if he has stayed away as a precautionary measure given that South Korea is one of the worst-hit countries.
Jose Mourinho and his staff were busy finalizing a new training schedule for the fortnight ahead after professional football in the UK was postponed until at least April 3.
